Although I am not a cupcake aficionado and would rather have a big goey chocolate brownie, I truly enjoy Mini’s Cupcake Cafe.
I stopped in here with a girl friend recently and we enjoyed their combo meal, which comes with a half a sandwich, salad, and cupcake. I realized there was so much more than just cupcakes at this retro cafe.
The salad was filled with pecans, dried cranberries, and topped with goat cheese. The sandwiches are served on AMAZING homemade oat bread. I go back and forth with which sandwich is my favorite. I love ‘Leslie’s Favorite’, which includes fresh mozzarella, roasted red pepper, field greens, and a pesto balsamic spread. But the cravings won’t stop for the ‘Talking Turkey’, which includes smoked turkey, swiss cheese, field greens, and a cranberry cream cheese spread. I’m going back for the sandwiches.
Mini’s has two totally fun retro cafes. One in Sugarhouse and one closer to downtown. Both are filled with unique vintage items making for a distinct ambiance that’s fun for all ages. I can imagine this would be a ideal spot for a baby shower, little girl’s birthday, or just lunch with a close girl friend.
My favorite cupcake: Mary Ann, a vanilla cupcake filled with banana custard and frosted with Swiss meringue, topped with toasted coconut.
The prettiest cupcake to give as a gift: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, a madagasgar vanilla bean cupcake with Tiffany blue cream cheese frosting, topped with edible gems.

cute review! cupcakes are not my treat of choice either but they are so cute and when fancied up… who can turn one down?!?
I can't wait to go there!
Becky! I'm so glad you had a chance to check out Mini's. I love both of Leslie's locations. Downtown is my fave though.I love the box lunch too! My favorite is Leslie's. Just can't beat that fresh combo.My favorite cupcake is the black and white.
I haven't had lunch there before, so glad to get a review on it. And the Mary Ann sounds wonderful!
Love Mini's took my 14 year old son there once when we were in the neighborhood, he resisted, but loved the sandwich and cupcake too. I love that they make bread for their sandwiches! Love the texture of the oatmeal bread. Have bought some of the cute aprons they carry for gifts too. Great shop!
