My not-so-great experience began with my phone call to place an order. The young woman who I dealt with was less than helpful and actually a little bit snippy. I told her I had never been there before and wanted help selecting flavors

This is a great spot when the items are fresh and just out the oven.. The staff is always friendly and accommodating and the pastries are to die for! I always bring my nephew here for cookies and cupcakes and he never wants to leave... Keep up the good work!

I came across an ad for Violets Cakes while looking through the CIty Guide in my hotel room(Pasadena Magazine) during my stay at the Langhum. I had a sweettooth and a big thing for cupcakes! I went and had their Red Velvet, my daughters had something called Brownie Bombers-I cannot rave enough about these cupcakes! They are messy and homemade and delish! We ended up ordering an additional half dozen to take back to the hotel with us! Which we devoured after dinner! The little bakery is adorable and the service so nice and friendly. The owner was there baking herself! What a truly remarkable experience. RUN-don't walk!

I just want to let everyone know that Violet's cakes goes above and beyond what you ask for. I recently got my wedding cake from them in August, and it was going to ride on my lap to San Diego in the heat of the day. It was a beautiful 3 tierd red and black cake with a bow on the top. It was definately bigger than I thought it was going to be, but it was the most beautiful cake I had ever seen. I had told Denise what I wanted, and they took my dream cake and made it sooo much better. The ride to San Diego was cold, but it made it in one piece, after a nervous 3 hour ride in traffic to San Diego. I would buy another cake from them in a heartbeat. They are super nice and Denise is a godsend. Thanks for everything Violet's cakes.--Melissa

The first thing I noticed was how friendly the staff was. They were completely accomadating! The cupcakes were like none other. I picked up a couple dozen to take to friends. We completely pigged out!! My favorite was the mint chocolate chip and the the red velvet chocolate. The cake is so moist and the frosting was....I can't even describe it! Totally yummy ,go check it out for yourself. I also saw them decorating an outragesly cool cake. They said they make cakes for all occasions. :) Check them out you won['t be sorry!

Pros: customer service, flavor, variety

Cons: parking

I have never been so insulted! I ordered cupcakes over the phone and specifically asked if it would be possible to pick them up at 5p on a Wednesday! Only to find that the order was never started! And I was not even offered an alternative. Instead the employee looked at me as if I were her annoyance. This place is not worth the icing on their damn cake! I recommend Sprinkles!!

I have had better service from a six year old selling me lemonade on the corner!!

Violet's was a transcendent experience. Not only is the service wonderful (everyone there was really nice), the cupcakes are amazing. I am especially fond of their frosting which is creamy and perfectly complements the cake. They are delicious cupcakes!

Pros: Great cupcakes

Cons: Street parking, closes early

Far better then Sprinkles....and at a better price. I used to be a hard core sprinkles patron and wel...having stopped by Violet's I have to say I am converted. Her cupcakes are so moist and the ratio of frosting to cake is sublime....The strawberry cupcake has actual strawberry puree in the frosting and is exquisite. And the Red velvet would make any southern person homesick. If you are lucky enough to live in the pasedena area frequent Violet's and if like me you don't live in pasadena...IT IS WORTH THE DRIVE.

I am so pleased for those of you that posted reviews on this remarkable little bakery. I am having my 50th birthday party and I want something super extraordinary for the event. Well, from word of mouth about this bakery in Old Towne to the reviews.. THANK YOU. I went by and talked with the owner (Denise) sampled some delicious and unforgetful cupcakes. She helped come up with the most amazing design for a cake. She then took time out of her day later to fax me her finished concept and price as well as email me some of her previous cakes she has done. I was elated and CAN NOT wait for her creation to be placed on the table at my party. Denise was so helpful and pleasant. I told her that I would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing cake and really wonderful cupcakes.... thanks and I am looking forward to my finished product.

Great product.... Friendly staff.... I saw the owner designing an awesome kids birthday cake on saturday.
The only problem I have is there is not a web-site set up yet!!! One of the workers said that they were working on it and just have been so busy since the opening. But hey, after all, during this day and age... everyone has a web-site. Other than that.... really wonderful!

Glad I found you and won't have to waste my time or money when looking for a great cupcake. I love the Hi-Hat (chocolate cupcake with marshmellow, dipped in chocolate) and the oreo cupcake.

What an amazing experience. I first found Violet's on a whim, while shopping in Old Towne, Pasadena. I am a cupcake lover and always look forward to tracking down and trying cupcakes where- ever I travel. I lived in New York right down from Magnolia's Bakery and those of you that know anything about cupcakes... New York is the mecca of cupcakes. Anyway, as I stood outside of Violets, I thought what a cute store front, but will the service and taste equal the inviting storefront. OH YEAH!!! From the first bite to the fourth cupcake(that's right, I couldn't stop with just one) I had standing there, I was in heaven. That was one of the best experiences I have had with my taste-buds. The business is family owned and operated. The owner her staff were just so pleasant.
I have now made Violet's a regular stop and have NEVER been disappointed even when I have to stand in line, I always know that there is a smile and a tasty cupcake coming my way. Violet's also has an assortment of flavors that I have never found at any other cupcakery's. There are other cupcake joints and then there is VIOLET'S!

Small family owned bakery. Really small. Her cupcakes are excellent. I bring them to meetings and people just flip out, even the girls "who never eat sweets." My girlfriend said the brownie was one of the best she has ever had, and that is saying something. The flavors rotate every day. I tried a peppermint one, my girl had vanilla on vanilla. Both fantastic. Pasadena needs a little cupcake place. The Westside has Sprinkles, now we have Violet's. It is creative and high quality. Get there early as she sells out fast. Hours are weird. Closed on Sundays and Mondays and closes Tuesday at 3pm. You will end up bringing these to people/meetings etc. because you will always get a positive review. Cupcakes are the bomb. Long may they reign.
