Ran into this place while going to get Greek food next door and fulfill my craving for a Gyro sandwich. Yeah, that’s right Donald, it’s happening, right now, baby! #periodsarenotaninsult No, not really, just a craving, but I digress…
Anyways, right next to the intended destination was this cute little shop that my copilot (daughter) zoomed in on and chirped up that we should check out. Now, how could I argue with that?!
Now, my first impression was that if I were ever to be so inclined to open a cupcake shop, that this is how it would go down. Bright yellow everywhere, bright yellow sign with a cute name, Cupcakes a la Yola, yellow cupcake wallpaper and lots of cupcakes with fillings. This place is Prozac in a strip mall.
We had to settle on only three so we narrowed it down to a tiramisu with coffee cream filling, a lemon coconut with lemon curd filling and a chocolate chip cupcake with white buttercream frosting and chocolate shavings. The tasting committee universally approved of all three as delish!
Cupcakes a la Yola is centrally located in Mission Valley off of Mission Gorge and Friars Rd. and definitely worth a stop to support a local Yola.
