Have you ever pictured yourself having a coffee with marshmallows eating colorful cakes and pastries in dainty plates printed in chintz? Or maybe fancied entertaining friends in a soft fluffy armchair within a charmingly wallpapered room decorated in pastel painted furniture? Oh I’m pretty sure some of you did when you were still kids who imagined to be living in a doll house which you might have seen from storybooks,cartoons, or from a toy store. Okay most girls could probably relate to it, and I’m pretty sure you’ve outgrown that fantasy right? Well you might have forgotten all about it ages ago, but nostalgia would definitely strike you once you’ve entered the sugar and spice and everything nice ambiance of Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and Cafe that looked like as if it was created from a childhood dream that magically came to life.
Now some boys may not appreciate the idea of being in such a very whimsically feminine looking place but definitely they would enjoy what the place has to offer..food of course!
Sugar and spice and everything nice: A cheerful atmosphere in pastel and candy colors, with cupcakes neatly arranged in a glass counter is definitely a feast for the eyes.

What caught my attention the most are the seating areas which is unique and different for every group which gives a feeling of having a space suitable for different personalities. There were high backed wing chairs in colorful quilts for the quirky, soft hued rococo furnishings adored by the classy, and chintz printed groupings that are uber cute and chic.
