Northeast Tallahassee is home to one of the city’s newest bakeries, Gigi’s Cupcakes. Gigi’s was started in Nashville in 2007 by a former singer/songwriter and now has 84 shops in 23 states. Becky and I decided to stop in one afternoon to see how their cupcakes stacked up against the competition.
Gigi’s is located at 6265 Old Water Oak Road in the same plaza that is home to a Cajun restaurant, bagel place, and nail bar. Parking was a breeze and a neon cupcake in the window beckoned us inside to try Gigi’s sweet treats. We walked inside and were met by a bright, clean interior decorated with lots of pink. Pink walls, pink utensil containers, and of course pink frosting piled high on cupcakes. We looked in the two display cases and weighed our options while the clerk behind the counter patiently waited. For more on Gigi’s read the full review on Tallahassee.com.
