The bakeshop that tops all bakeshops when it comes to variety and quality of bread ingredients. I have nothing but good things to say about this shop.

I can't speak for everything at the store, but their mini cupcakes and cheese cakes are awesome. I have never had any problems. Once we came in and we wanted mini cupcakes and they were out so we bought the regular size. Even though those

Honestly, we've ordered from OOH LA LA before and we've had great experiences from them but after today's experience, I'll be surprised if our office ever orders from there again! We order 8 dozen cupcakes to send to our clients to show

The bakery is pretty and the desserts are even prettier, but I have not been impressed with the cupcakes and cookies I've tasted. I have also had some of their coffees and smoothies. I think the items are over-priced, so I only go here when I want to wow a friend with a nice (and somewhat expensive) birthday cake.

We are new to Katy and I've heard a lot of nice things about the bakery. I visited the store for the first time on Saturday with my 9-yr daughter. She was very excited about ordering cupcakes to bring to school on Wed morning for her

I am very satisfy when I tasted their delicious desserts, and one more thing the price is affordable. The desserts that they serve to their costumers is baked with love and with a smile. Great service too.That is why I never failed to go there everyday.

I am new to the Katy area, and I can't tell you how much I wanted to like this place. The curb appeal was enough to draw me in, and the atmosphere is adorable, for lack of a better word. Is it then, to much to ask for delectable, delicious

I had heard great applause for this bakery/coffee shop. I stopped in for some cup cakes since they seem to be a topic of delight. The shop was very clean and appealing. The cakes in the case looked very good. I purchased 3 cup cakes at

I ordered a yellow-butter cake with choc cream cheese frosting. It was moist and delicious. Everyone was asking for more cake at the party! This is my new go-to pastry place. Thanks!

I used to be a big fan of this place, but recently their quality has gone downhill. Their cupcakes, while as pretty as ever, are so dry and hard. At $3 a cupcake, that is just unacceptable. When this first happened to me a few months ago, I thought I just got a bad cupcake, but now 4 times in a row it has happened...dry, overpriced cupcakes every time, in a variety of flavors. I see on their reviews that other customers have been experiencing the same disappointment, which is such a shame given that they used to be pretty good. What happened?!

The store's decor is so cute, and the staff has always been very friendly and helpful. But...is it too much to ask for a MOIST cupcake?! I don't know what the problem is with their recipe (or maybe they are freezing the cupcakes, which can cause dryness/hardness), but I really hope they fix the problem and can go back to making great cupcakes! Until I start hearing better things about their cupcakes again, I will not be wasting my money on them anymore.

I will say that their cheesecake is still amazing, though! I ended up having half of my husband's key lime cheesecake because my cupcake was inedible! Their cheesecake is wonderful.

Ooh La La, if you're reading these reviews, PLEASE no more hard, dry cupcakes!

Unfortunately, there aren't many bakeries west of hwy 6 for people living in Katy. So when I asked around, everyone recommended Ooh La La. More like Ooh La Don't!

I purchased a slice of cake and a slice of pie. And I've had cupcakes ordered from Ooh La La at a friend's party. The cakes are dry and tasteless and the texture leads me to believe that the owner uses a boxed mix. The "Red Velvet" cupcake did not have cream cheese frosting but a white, sweet pseudo-frosting that tasted like it came from a grocery store bakery. The chocolate cake was lacking in chocolate flavor. The only thing good about the oreo pie were the oreos.

Bottom line, this bakery makes their items overly sweet to compensate for a lack of flavor. While their portions are large, why spend the money (and the calories) on something you could buy at the grocery store down the street for cheaper. Sadly, Katy-ites don't have many options for bakeries so this place serves junk and flourishes.

My 2 cousins live nearby & have raved about this place since it opened. The first time I went in there I tried a cupcake and was very unimpressed! It was so dry! The cupcakes are also huge so you think you??re getting a big dessert for your money, but after one bite I didn??t want the rest. Plus, there??s so much cake it??s impossible to get a good cake-to-frosting ratio. At my cousins?? urging, I gave the place a second try on another visit. I tried what I think they call cake truffles, but what I have always refer to as cake balls. Again, I was disappointed. I love to bake and have made better cupcakes and cake balls using boxed cake mixes & frosting from a can!

The 3rd chance for this place came when I helped my cousin pick up the pre-ordered cupcakes for my other cousin??s bridal shower. The order was incorrect and after dealing with a very rude woman behind the counter for about 10 mins we learned she was the owner and there was nothing she was willing to do to fix the problem. We ended up with a couple dozen horribly dry cupcakes that didn??t match our order.

Thankfully, this summer, my cousins came to visit me out on the East coast, & I had the pleasure of taking them to real bakeries & cupcake shops. They both agreed they won??t be going back to this joint!

Since we don't have any bakeries to speak of in south Katy, I had high hopes for this one. It has many positives, but I'm a bit perplexed about the rave reviews. I find the cupcakes to be very dry, especially for the price. I'm not giving up on them, though. Perhaps they will read this and make the necessary changes.

Friday's Margaritaville, Saturday's Lemon Tart...Oh my! It doesn't get much better than this place! I ordered a dozen of these babies for a dinner party and many of my guest took their desert home because they wanted others to see it before they took a bite out of their lovely beauties!! The cupcakes and taste even better!! Make sure to try the Friday Margaritaville...it's a personal favorite of mine with it's real baked in tequila! YUM!

Made the trek from Sugar Land to get some goodies for my sweetie, and dear friends. Easy to find, charming dessert shop! There was plenty of help who were polite, and I was waited on pretty quickly even tho the place was hopping!

I strongly recommend this delightful shop! I bought a selection of cupcakes, tarts, and a cream puff (hubby's fave). Everything wonderful! Even the other customers were delightful!!

Please come to Sugar Land!!

This place is so great! I love to stop by for dessert with some friends in the evenings. They have some tables set up outside to enjoy the nice weather and inside the atmosphere is awesome! There are plenty of desserts to choose from and if you don't know what something is, just ask and they will tell you! The cookies are my favorite! They also make great smoothies and coffee drinks. This is definitely one of the best places to meet an old friend to catch up or just to stop in by yourself for a treat!

I have been a loyal customer at Oh La La for a while now and I have to say that they are the best place in town for any type of dessert you are looking for. I have never bought anything that I didn't like there and never had anyone complain about this place. There is a reason there are so many 5 star reviews. Don't read the bad reviews, they obviously do not know what they are talking about. I regret that they had bad service but I just want to say that I have never been disappointed at Oh La La. Go out of your way 2 minutes to stop by this place and grab a piece of cake, muffins, cookies, coffee, etc. You will NOT regret it!

I have been a customer at Ooh La La ever since it opened a couple years back. I have continued to be impressed with the quality, freshness and variety of their desserts. I have explored numerous other dessert shops (crave, Dessert Gallery, etc) but none come close to topping Ooh La La.

I continue to trek far out to Katy just for the delicious desserts (I can never leave without a Chocolate Chewy cookie!), the pleasant atmosphere, and the service. As a response to recent reviews, I must say that I, myself, have never received less than attentive service from the Ooh La La staff. Both the front staff and the pastry chefs have always been very helpful.

Moreover, the creative minds behind the menu at this top Houston dessert spot have never ceased to surprise and delight my taste buds, and the special orders they can do are phenomenal. I expect Ooh La La to be a stable of the Houston dessert scene for years to come, and hope that the rumors of expansion are true!

this place is just adorable! everything looks so cute, the tables and chairs and the general atmosphere is so inviting. the cupcakes look really pretty and the other dessert items look pretty cute. however, i would have to say the taste is mediocre. not bad, but not great.

anyway, the point of my post. all of these reviews below me seem extremely passionate about the art of the cupcake and this place in general. all the good ratings are so over the top only the owner or someone else who would benefit would write such things. furthermore, the bad ratings could only be written by a person who is allergic to dessert. the reviews on this site are crazy! the bottom line is that if you have a lot of extra money sitting around and are too lazy to bake for your own family, take them here.

It's disturbing to read such strong negative reviews for a place that is so good. Why such anger about dessert?

The staff is young, but very helpful with great ideas for solutions to my problems on how to display and how to serve the desserts I buy there. They have handled multiple special orders for me, including a large party, with outstanding results. I have found every worker there to be polite and responsive. If they seem brisk or rude to you, it can be a busy and fast-paced place to work!

The desserts are delicious at Ooh La La, and they have always delivered as promised. While I know that there are good grocery store bakeries out there, Ooh La La is special and dependable for every occasion.

I heard about ooh la la from a friend of mine and decided to give it a try early last week. Upon walking into the restaurant i was instantly impressed with the wonderful decor and atmosphere. I was so excited to eat the pretty cupcakes! Much to my disappointment, the pros stopped there. The staff was rude and clearly wanted to be elsewhere, I kept overhearing their discussion of parties and other things that were completely inappropriate for a business establishment! I ordered a fruit cheesecake and a latte. The cheesecake looked very pretty but it unfortunately tasted old and hard. It definitely did not taste like it was freshly baked or worth the price. I definitely will not be returning!

I always have a great experience at Ooh La La. The bakery is super cute and a pleasant place to enjoy a treat. This is a must stop when friends from out of town visit me. The staff is young and friendly, I've always had good service.

While they're known for their delicious cupcakes (the Boston cream is a personal fav.) I am in love with the cheesecakes. A slice of lemon cheesecake from here can make my week. Plus they had peppermint cheesecake this Christmas, which is one of my holiday favorites! The cakes are huge, pretty, and always tasty. There's also a good selection of tea and coffee to wash down your treats. The place even has a drive through. If you haven't stopped by yet, it is worth a visit.

I am a long time customer of Ooh La La and have always been extremely impressed by the desserts and have always found the employees to be very friendly and helpful. Most of her staff is younger (high school aged), but still have always provided top-notch service!!
The desserts are always very fresh, delicious, and sooo creative. I am amazed at some of the cup cake flavors that she comes up with.

I heard that Sprinkles is coming to Houston. They had better watch out if Ooh La La decides to move to Houston!!

Each and every experience I've had at Ooh La La has been truely wonderful. The staff greets me as soon as I walk through their door, they always give me ample time to decide on my pastry purchases and offer to make me a drink each time.
I have been a customer for some time now and consider Ooh La La to be my favorite, local bakery. The owner and her staff have continually proven to be professional and extremely accomodating.
I would definately recommend Ooh La La to anyone I can think of and I can't wait for the new location to open!
I wish them the best of success.

I once said I would never find a place where I'd LOVE everything on the menu... I was WRONG! Just when you think you've had the best bite of your life (at first I thought the cupcakes), you take the cookies for a tasty spin (the choc chip cookies are worth dreaming about), then you try the cheesecake and then you try the banana pudding... I promise it just keeps getting better. I'm the type of person that will share anything with you... unless it involves dessert from Ooh La La. The owner is so creative and the staff are as sweet as the treats!

I recently purchased cupcakes and a huge cheesecake from oh la la bakery and while the cheesecake was delicous and fresh, the customer service was horrible. No one smiled or greeted me as I walked through the door, everyone was just doing a whole lot of walking around but not helping the five people that had walked in behind me. They have a "young" staff so maybe they need to train them better because it was almost a deal breaker.
The cupcakes are great and the cheesecake was to die for but this bakery as cute as it is needs to get with the program and start smiling at their PAYING customers, just a thought.

I stopped in after my daughter told me this was "the place" to get the real treats. it was our snack night for our meeting. First of all they were almost out of cupcakes and not making anymore by 5:30. Then I noticed the price! $3.00 for a cupcake? For my group of eight girls that would have been well over $20. I decided to get the large brownies displayed in a showcase on the counter. Low and behold, I heard more than once that they were hard and tasted stale. I had to throw more than half away because the girls did not want to eat them. I guess from being in the little display showcase all day they got hard. I was genuinely disappointed.

Pros: just enough of a selection

.

First visit, I ordered three cakes for my boss's retirement party - they were AWESOME! So rich, even those who usually take too much at our gatherings cut back on their servings.

Based on that experience, hubby & I went back for cupcakes after dinner. He got the Elvis while I got chocolate with (supposedly) buttercream icing. I was having a hard time eating mine because it was so dry. When I mentioned that to hubby, he tried mine, then told me that his was even drier.

Don't know what's going on there, but at least I know it wasn't just us! We might go back for cake, but no cupcakes. Very disappointed. Gave the 3 stars for the cake.

Pros: Delicious, moist, rich cakes

Cons: Dry cupcakes with non-buttercream icing

I love this place. So cute and adds charm to Cinco Ranch. Drive thru just adds to the temptation and convenience. Dont forget to try their latte's also.

My kids love the cupcakes, I am not a cupcake person but I can eat one whole (not slice) cheesecake like a cupcake!

So rich in taste,mouth watering and every bit makes you want more. I am getting a craving as I type this review! It is delicious there.

I order the cakes too, for family events and my family and friends love it and they have gone to order some for themselves.

It's a real treat!

My family stopped by this store for the first time last night and we picked out two large cupcakes and I had a slice of Red Velvet cake.

We only live about 5 minutes away and when we got home and started to eat our deserts, we all were disappointed as all the deserts were dry. It literally tasted like they were old deserts.

If it had only been one of the 3 items we would have probably not said much but having all 3 items be stale?!

Rest assured we will not be visiting this store again.

...some of you people must have NEVER eaten a moist cupcake!! Seriously!! I got a cupcake at WALMART and it was moister AND you could actually taste the flavor in the icing. At Ooh la la, the icing tastes like it's made from a bland base icing and just dyed and flavored minimally. The cake is SOOO dry! WHY is it so dry?!
If someone who works there could tell me, I'd be very interested. I mean, obviously some people are enjoying the dry texture, but---that's not what most of the public likes. I would be very interested to know if they make the cupcakes and then freeze them--or if they're fresh...cuz it's hard to make a dry-fresh cupcake.
Anyway- moisture, people! MOISTURE!!!!!!

I'm not really a sweets persson but I love a good cupcake and was in the area visiting my sister when we drove by and had to check it out. There is a wide variety of cupcakes, cakes, and drinks. The young lady there was very helpful and the ambiance it self just made me want to sit down with my HUGE cupcake, a cool glass of milk, and just spend the morning there. Makes me sad they don't have a location in the city.

I am a very good baker and completely disagree with the bad review someone else wrote. The bakery items at oh la las are excelent. In addition to the cupcakes, the eclairs and cakes are fabulous. I have brought the baked goods as hostess gifts and have converted others oh la la-ites

Tonight I went to Ooh La La after dinner for dessert around 7:30 pm. I lOVE good cupcakes. The chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting though was a let down.

The cake was dry and tasted like a mix. The frosting tasted like they used shortening, not butter as in buttercream frosting. This cupcake was totally lacking in flavor.

Another night prior to this one, I tried the Pina Colada. Pineapple mixed in with the vanilla cupcake gave a nice flavor but it wasnt fabulous as I expected a $3.00 cupcake to taste.

If you want a good cupcake, skip this place all togther. You could try Crave or better yet, bake your own, from scratch! The cupcake critic.

Pros: Parking, Service, cute menu,eat in and out

Cons: The cupcakes just arent that good. They need to use higher quality ingredients

We've been here several times and every time has been fabulous! The cupcakes are to die for and their cheesecake is fantastic! The "Elvis" red velvet cupcakes are excellent. We'll keep going back as long as they keep baking!!

I first heard about Ooh La La from watching "Great Day Houston" with Deborah Duncan. The cupcakes looked good enough to eat right off the screen. I wished I had smell-o-vision! I HAD to try them.
I don't even live close to Katy, but I hopped on the Westpark Tollway and was there in no time. The store is the cutest! SO cozy and well decorated. The display case held every dessert imaginable, but I was on a cupcake mission (I have to admit I ordered some cannolis and fruit tarts to go - wonderful!). I ordered the Velvet Elvis red velvet cupcake and the Nutella Latte. One taste and I was hooked. The red velvet cake was moist and practically melted in my mouth. The icing was so beautiful I almost didn't want to eat it, but I did. Fabulous! I now drive all the way out to Katy once a month for coffee with the girls. They all thank me for finding such a treasue!

After enjoying a nice lunch elsewhere, I took a friend to Ooh La La as a special surprise for her birthday. I'd heard that the cupcakes were to-die-for. When we saw the cupcakes in the display case, we had no doubts that they'd taste as good as they looked. We each made our selection (a cupcake to eat there) and I ordered an additional 1/2 dozen (a variety of cupcakes) to take home for my family. The cupcakes were extra-large and were iced generously and decorated nicely. Some had fillings; some did not. They looked divine!

So imagine our disappointment when we cut into the cupcakes and found that they were DRY. The actual cake portion of the dessert was horrible! If I had tasted them first, I would have never placed my to-go order. They were definitely over-baked.

I took the 1/2 dozen cupcakes home to my family and they were delighted when they saw them. I didn't say a word -- hoping that perhaps the "dry-as-cardboard" cupcakes my friend and I had might have been the exception. No such luck. I ended up with 6 half-eaten (pricey) cupcakes that I had to throw away.

Some of the other desserts might be better. They had tiramisu on display that looked like it might be very good. I will never order the cupcakes or a slice of cake again, though. Delicious icing, nicely decorated, but HORRIBLY dry and taste was blah.

I will find any reason, not that I need one, to buy CC from Ooh La La - dinner parties, son's graduation party, showers, or just because it's Friday and I am addicted to the Margaritaville CC. The "Monday" Turtle CC and "Wednesday" Drama Queen are just as wonderful. Their cakes are large and just as wonderful. They also make these cute little tarts in these cookie shells. I haven't tasted anything I didn't like there.

The staff has ALWAYS been the best. They obviously enjoy working there. I don't see them pushing customers off on each other, instead I they work together to take care of customers, It's wonderful.

The decor of the place makes it nice to get away by yourself or with a friend for some sweets, drinks and good conversation or just reading in the lounge chair in the corner.

I absolutely ADORE this fabulous addition to the epicurean community of Katy. What a CUTE store!!! Such a great name too! My husband and I go there at least once a week. We love sitting in the comfortable living room area and sampling a new dessert every time. I'm trying to sample each dessert at least once, but this is difficult because the wonderful chef keeps adding new beautiful treats each time I go. My all-time favorite has to be the Tiramisu. I am an expert and a connoisseur of Tiramisu (self-appointed of course), and this has to be the best I have ever had (and believe me I've had plenty). I also love all the key lime pie, the eclairs, the chocolate italian cream cake, and all of the cup cakes. What a wonderful and accomondating staff also. You typically wouldn't expect much from high school students, but the staff her really goes above and beyond!! I can't write anymore because I am drooling all over the keyboard. If you have not made it to this treasure yet, you absolutely must!!! Even if you don't live in the area, trust me, it's worth the drive.

Ooh La La has a wonderful dessert collection and the most moist cup cakes I have ever tasted. You will not be disappointed when bring these delightful moist cup cakes to a friend or family's home for any occasion. If you have not tried these moist delights you must stop by and give them a try. The cup cakes really give any occasion that extra touch of moist perfection!

My wife and I have been coming to Ooh La La since day one. We go there once if not twice a week. We try something new each time we come. It seems that each time we visit is better than the last!! Are favorites so far are the chocolate italian cream cake, pina colada and velvet elvis cupcakes, cannoli's, butterscotch pecan cookies, and last but not least the chocolate chewy's. Bottom line- great desserts, great staff, and great coffee. Words can not describe Ooh La La! Not even fabulous!!

When to Ooh La La a few times last year and thought things were good but not anymore. The food is now average, not impressive and it seems that they lost a great chef that I liked talking to when i came in. Also the last 2 times I went the coffee was burned. Hope things can turn around for them but I dont think I will be going back. Plus the service staff needs some work.

This has to be the best cupcake place by FAR... Ive been on a cupcake hunt since ive decided i want a cupcake wedding cake... I need 700 cupcakes and cute at it. Her CC's are moist, cute, trendy, flavorful, and reasonably price. Ive tried almost 8 differnet places around the houston area. And the only place that tops ohh lalal is the cookie jar and they are a little pricey. CRAVE in uptown "blah, dry, small, gross, and expensive" Tiara cakes.. okie.. sugarbabies.. yummy but ohh lala really makes you go OHH LALAL LALA!

Great selection of desserts - everything from cookies to creme brulee. There are different offerings each day so there is plenty of variety and everything is very fresh. The staff is very friendly and the dining area is cozy and inviting. A great place to stop for a treat since there is somthing for everybody. They offer generous samples and if you get on their e-mail list you'll get coupons for free desserts. What could be better than that?!
