Maybe the point is tired at this point, but I don't get it. How much harder would it have been to put in a large display case and truck cupcakes over from the NW bakery and then sell them like that? I'm kind of baffled by the whole concept here which, as MSG says, doesn't really fit the Belmont vibe. Maybe they are expecting that people will buy a cupcake and then walk down to Stumptown to eat it? Strange idea, I think.
Yes I think the prices are steep. My daughter and I went there on Saturday afternoon. We didn't spend much time there but it appeared that they were only selling the larger boxes of cupcakes. I didn't want to buy that many cupcakes at once and the cupcakes that they had out were looking a bit dried out and yucky.
It seems like a fundamentally bad idea when the employee has to explain the whole "concept" (a word I heard the employee use several times in a two-minute span on Sunday) to each customer.
