Cocoa Bean Cupcake Cafe

Sep 30, 11 Cocoa Bean Cupcake Cafe

If you love gourmet sweets then The Cocoa Bean Cupcake Cafe is the place for you!  From the uniquely flavored steamers to their detailed cupcakes the Cocoa Bean is a great choice for any occasion.

Nestled in the shopping plaza off university, along with Sub Zero Ice Cream and Burger Supreme, the Cocoa Bean is in a great spot. Not too far from some of the apartment complexes, Cocoa Bean is within a short walking distance.

As you walk into the Cafe, locatedCocoa Bean Cupcake Cafe not far from BYU campus, it has such a warm and inviting feeling. Whether you want to take a break from studying or need a creative date is cute and carefree this is the spot to go. A friend who wanted to take a break with me after a long night of studying wanted to grab something to eat. Quick, easy, and more than anything rewarding, she and I showed up around 10:30. To my surprise they were still open and the place was actually busy!

Immediately as you walk in, the cupcakes are on display in a large plexiglass window. The welcoming staff greeted us with a smile and a hello as we walked in the door. Even with all of the people there I was impressed with their warm attitudes and happy spirits.

I was shocked when I saw the cupcakes. The name “cupcake” does Cocoa Bean’s take on a traditional treat no favors because the deserts they bake are MASSIVE! But even though the size is larger than normal the quality and detail that goes into each cupcake is not sacrificed.

I ordered the “Luscious Lemon Raspberry” cupcake that night and even on appearance it looked amazing. The bright spongy cake topped with a pink butter cream icing and topped with a large fresh raspberry looked so inviting. Bite after bite there was so many flavors to take in! Thick, moist and full of tangy Lemon flavor with that slight hint of the raspberry from the icing matched the gourmet presentation perfectly.  I washed down the cupcake with the Mexican Hot Chocolate steamer. The subtle chocolate taste was a great contrast to the rich citric flavor of the cupcake.

Overall I couldn’t have been more impressed with the experience. Whenever you have a friend’s birthday or need some place to relax, Cocoa Bean is a great thing to do in Provo!
