Jamaica Plain cupcake counter Monumental Cupcakes opens September 25th

From Jamaica Plain Gazette:

Monumental Cupcakes, a cupcake and snack counter addition to JP Art Market, located at 36 South Street, will have its grand opening with cupcake girls, music and snacks on Sept. 25, 11 am to 6 pm.

The new permanent addition will feature a variety of teas, coffees, cupcakes and pastries made fresh in house daily, as well as smoothies and many vegan and gluten-free snack options, like vegan hot dogs.

Patti Hudson, owner of the JP Art Market gallery, opened the snack counter in July, according to the Art Market’s website. Since then, she told the Gazette in an e-mail, the reception has been great.

“It was always the intention of the gallery to have a coffee counter, from day one. We finally got around to it,” Hudson said. “Foodie friends have been after me for years to do this final phase of the art gallery,” she said.

Hudson is aiming for an afternoon tea-time or after dinner dessert destination instead of a bread- or cake-based bakery or “early morning croissant/scone place,” like Fiore’s, Canto 6 or Blue Frog, she said, singing their praises in those areas.
