A new cupcake cafe is in town. The Cocoa Bean Cafe has been a favorite of locals in Rexburg, Idaho and now they have a location here in The Valley right between BYU and UVU. The perfect location of students. The owners are a brother and sister team, Gloria Mugleston & Gary Rasmussen. The Cocoa Bean Cupcake Cafe stays open later and they have Wi-Fi which is also great for those of us who are up late and of course the schedule of the students near by.
Joanie and I had a chance to try a few of the favorites. I am always a huge fan of lemon and lime flavors but to my surprise my favorite was one of the chocolate cupcakes. It was Joanie's favorite too! It has a great name to fit the experience " There's a party in my mouth". It is a chocolaty gooey perfectly balanced cup of cakey goodness!
The Cocoa Bean Cupcake Cafe also offers a nice variety of tasty hand crafted drinks. The unique drink they offer is a roasted cocoa bean drink like this drink I told you about.
