City Pages' Description

Cocoa & Fig makes scones, brioche, and chocolate bouchons, macarons, carrot cake sandwich cookies, and quiche, but it's best known for its cupcakes, which are among the best in the Twin Cities. While the cupcake's cake is uniformly excellent, what truly distinguishes the sugary treats is their frosting, mounded up in Dairy Queen cone-style lobes as tall as their bases. The portion might be a little excessive, but we won't be the first to cry uncle. The Italian meringue buttercream is positively ethereal: silky and light as whipped butter.

    Cake pops for birthdays are delish!

  • Dave L. on 08/05/11

    The chocolate based cupcakes tend to be much more moist than the vanilla, and are all excellent.

  • Michael M. on 10/19/13

    Try the cupcakes

  • Rebecca Z. on 03/04/13

    Voted City Pages top ten Cupcakes! Cocoa & Fig's cupcakes are crowned with frosting in Dairy Queen cone-style lobes piled as tall as their bases.
