The Pearl District's Cupcake Jones has brought its magic-in-the-middle take on cupcakes to Northeast Alberta. Co-owner Lisa Watson has revamped the space next door to the brand-new Case Study Coffee, offering her full menu of cupcakes, which are baked at the original bakery in the Pearl.
But unlike the original spot, the new location offers bar seating along the wall, and Watson says she and the Case Study owners have a symbiotic partnership: Customers are encouraged to bring in their Case Study drinks to enjoy with their cupcake, or take their cakes next door to Case Study.
Cupcake Jones is partnering with its other neighbor, Living Room Realty, to celebrate its grand opening on October 30, during Alberta Street's Last Thursday celebration. The event is at the realty office (1401 N.E. Alberta St.), and will offer cupcakes, food, drink, live music, and a costume contest.
