I've been going to Molly's since it opened, and it has remained a staple dessert in our house every since the first day we tried a cupcake there. The cupcakes are really phenomenal - perfect frosting (the cream cheese on the red velvet is TO DIE FOR) and perfect cake texture. Sometimes the fillings are a little bit too much, but really, can you ever have too much cupcake? The hidden gems here though are the smaller items that aren't right at eye level in the glass cases. These items are cheaper, and really make it a tough decision between cupcakes which are more expensive. Their rice krispie treats are absolutely PERFECT. Chocolate covered strawberries have the right consistency and quantity of chocolate - at half the price of high end places. And their cookies are totally divine. Bottom line is there is something for everyone here. You will not be disappointed!

We came from France to check out real US cupcakes. After having tried several well renowned bakeries in London, UK, we hit Chicago. Walking into Molly's is like going back to school - with all those good memories. The small tables and chairs, the games and the counter with swings ! Then when we get to the counter it's heaven. You can make your own cupcake. You choose the base, the frosting and the toppings. Then it is decorated in front of you ! Or if you are feeling really adventurous you can try the many specialised cupcakes. Be careful, these are serious cupcakes soft and fluffy, excellent filling and not sickly at all !! Much to our (pleasant) surprise expecting US cupcakes to be sweeter than those in the UK. So Molly's is bakery number 6 on the cupcake list and went straight to the top and is still there (after trying 3 bakeries in Madison WI too). To tell you how good it was, we were due to drive back from Milwaukee on the following Sunday directly to O'Hare to fly home, we changed our plans to spend the Saturday night in Chicago so we could go back to Molly's !!!! This is THE address to know, to go to and to share with everyone !
