    Molly's is great. I like how you can mix and match your own cupcake flavor and icing. (Not everyone wants cream cheese frosting on a red velvet cupcake!) There is seating, which is nice too.
    Sweet Mandy B's is one of the original cupcake places in Chicago.
    Twisted Sister Bakery in Old Town is also great.

      This is almost a silly question: Molly's makes the best cupcakes pretty much ever. People travel from all over the country to eat them. Try the Ron Bennington: you will not be disappointed.

      Although it's not only in Chicago I think Sprinkles Cupcakes are heavenly with an endless amount of flavors!

            Yuck - possibly the worst bakery in Chicagoland.
