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.
