Service is always awesome even when they have a full house. Had a sister come into town and asked me to take her here again. This place has a cool design. Feels like a place in Los Angeles I loved. More...

Sooo yummy! As a wedding photographer, I love when I see Cocoa & Fig provide the desserts for the dessert table! Their desserts are not only delicious but also extremely photogenic which is a win-win for any photographer!

Cocoa & Fig recently donated desserts for the 10th Annual Twin Cities Wedding & Event Professional Gala at my distillery on April 10. They were the most delightful little desserts and really added a nice touch to the event. I would definitely purchase these for future events I'm planning. More...

The other reviews basically summarize it up perfectly. You come here for the macarons! I have been here many, many times over the past 8-9 years and one thing is for certain: they make macaron magic. I've had macarons from other bakeries like Byerly's etc., and they are all garbage compared to these.The cupcakes are hit or miss. When they're moist or fresh they're really really good, but 50% or more of the time they're dry. And with how competitively priced the place is, it's not worth the gamble. Plus the selection is always small compared to other cupcake bakeries. That being said though, their doppleganger Hostess™ cupcake was amazing the one time I was lucky enough to find one.The cake pops are gross, but to be fair I think all cake pops are gross. The gluten free cake is super yummy. It's basically a pile of fudge. Also, the cookies are delicious. However, they're not any better than other good cookies.But what does it matter? You don't come here for cupcakes and the other stuff, you come here for macarons! Even if they are $2 for just one.They are exquisite every single time. Some of their flavors are constant and always available while others are temporary/specialty. Salted Caramel and Pistachio are my personal gotos of their regular flavors. But my absolute favorite is a specialty one that's not always available: Lemon Blueberry. I don't even like lemony treats usually. It is to die for.Tip, eat them same day for best texture and taste, and the colder the better without actually freezing them. I basically pop them in the fridge for a few hours when I get home. The ones that made it through the car ride anyhow without me eating them. More...

I love the sea salt camel macaroons the are a little spendy at $2.00 each but the filling is AMAZING I especially love them cold and the colder the better putting them in the fridge makes them chewy which I love will defently be going back. Unfortunately the other location of this store has closed not sure why I go at least once a week sometimes more I LOVE this place More...

If I had to choose between this location and their primary location by Southdale mall, I would choose the other no doubt. This location has a much smaller selection and the staff is not near as welcoming or friendly. However, the products they do carry are delicious and you can taste the quality in every bite. With going to if you’re having a craving for a macaroon and can’t get out of downtown! More...

Cocoa and Fig absolutely NAILED our wedding cake and exceeded all our expectations! At the last minute, our wedding cake vendor dropped out on us and I scrambled to find a replacement. I called countless bakeries and finally found Cocoa, thank God! I worked with one of the owners, Joe, from the beginning and he was super responsive and easy to work with. Being able to pick up a "Tasting Box" of cupcakes to find which flavors we liked best was convenient and fun! Once we decided on the sinfully chocolate cake, Joe took our inspiration picture and made it into a reality. The price was reasonable and the onsite delivery was convenient. Not only was it gorgeous, but also delicious, our guests loved it and we're still savoring some slices at home!! We would HIGHLY recommend using Cocoa and Fig for any of your bakery needs!!!

I can't imagine a better dessert caterer than Cocoa and Fig! I'm a relatively experienced baker and my family are all (self-described) dessert snobs, and we were all so impressed with the quality of the desserts both at our tasting and at my wedding. Guests also raved. They were able to do exactly what we wanted, with a bunch of layer cakes in several flavors as well as lots of different mini tarts. With these different kinds of dessert I wasn't sure how it'd all look together on display, but Cocoa and Fig set it all up and provided the serving stands, and the presentation was perfect and beautiful. Communication with Joe was easy and prompt, and his recommendation for the number of cakes for our guests was also spot-on. I only wish I had more of an appetite on my wedding day to eat more of the desserts! We can't recommend Cocoa and Fig enough. More...

Cocoa & Fig did the desserts for my daughter's wedding.  They were great to work with.  The tasting session was very helpful in deciding what to order.  They provided everything needed to arrange the miniature desserts attractively at the reception and handled the set-up and pick up.  Most important, the desserts were delish!  If I had to do again, I would order fewer miniature tarts and fruit pies.  They didn't seem to be as popular as other options.

I strongly recommend Cocoa & Fig to anyone having a wedding or event where they need catered desserts! Our entire experience with them was excellent and our Dessert Coordinator Lauren was very friendly and helpful from the initial consultation / tasting through execution on the big day. For the quality of the desserts and service the prices were very competitive.

During the tasting, she did a wonderful job asking questions to understand our overall vision and needs and had a lot of books and visual examples of what other people have done. In addition, we got to try a large variety of their desserts which was great because we ultimately decided to do a miniature dessert assortment and small cake for us to cut during the reception.

On wedding day, everything was delivered and setup on time and the dessert table looked amazing with all the bright colors, stands and signs. We received nothing but compliments from our guests about how the display looked and ultimately how delicious the desserts were.

I would order from here again! They have a store with food, but for orders like cakes and strawberries, you need to order 48hr before. The cake was delicious! And strawberries stayed fresh! More...

My advice is to book with Cocoa & Fig. We knew that we wanted a dessert bar. Lauren did a great job of giving us options and advice. From the tasting to the the day of our wedding, we were so happy to choose Cocoa & Fig. All the desserts were delicious and our guests loved the variety of options. More...

My husband and I hired Cocoa & Fig for our wedding at Camrose Hill Flower Farm this September. We had a variety of mini cupcakes for our guests and they were fantastic. We received many, many compliments and it was a great alternative to a large cake, allowing for a variety of flavors. They accommodated our gluten free guest too and were one of our most accommodating and responsive vendors. The tasting was a wonderful treat in itself! Would recommend them highly and use them again for another event! More...

We were so happy with Cocoa and Fig! We had 6 mini desserts, and nearly all were eaten. Lauren and her crew were responsive and answered all our questions (and we were planning the wedding from NYC). We had a wonderful tasting. And the wedding day was beautiful! Everyone raved about the desserts. They were unique and the display was beautiful! We also had escort card apples pies on a stick - and they looked amazing! Everyone loved this touch and they were so delicious. One of our guests recently said she's trying to make desserts for her son's reception and she "hopes they look as beautiful as our desserts did." (Too bad she lives out of state, otherwise she could hire Cocoa and Fig too!) We highly recommend them! More...

I cannot rave more about Cocoa & Fig!! Their desserts are not only delicious, but oh so beautiful!

Right from the start, Lauren was so easy to work with, responding to emails in a timely manner, meeting with us for a tasting, and answering all of our questions. When I needed to make changes to our dessert menu and add another layer to our cake, it was no problem at all.

On the wedding day, they come and decorate your dessert table to match the style and look of your wedding, one less thing for brides to stress about! Our naked cake was gorgeous (and delicious!) and we received compliment after compliment from our guests about the mini desserts, both on the wedding day and the weeks following.

I would recommend that you consider getting more desserts than you think you'll need; we had 705 dessert pieces (plus a three-tiered cake) for 235 guests and they were all gone, except for a few that my parents took home for us to enjoy the next morning. The great news is, they have retail shops in Minneapolis and Edina, so even after the wedding you can get your Cocoa & Fig craving satisfied.

If you're looking for stunning desserts to wow your guest (and yourself!), I HIGHLY recommend Cocoa & Fig!!

Cocoa & Fig was very responsive and communicated well throughout the entire process, from the tasting, through the design process, and right up to delivery of our fabulous cake.

I wish I lived closer to the bakery so we could get cupcakes and deserts all the time, I have dreams of their amazing cupcakes and cake! They were very flexible with us and easy to work with which was great because we live 5 hours from where we had our wedding. My guests loved the deserts so much and so did we! I was happy to have left overs to take home because they were just so delicious. We had a mix up on the delivery (we had them deliver to our hotel instead of reception site) but that was because the hotel stored the deserts for us instead of notifying us. Because of this we had a bit of a panic when we had to leave and hadn't heard about them being delivered but it got sorted out quick. They packed the cake and cupcakes well and they made the half hour drive from ceremony to reception perfectly. We are incredibly happy that we decided to go with Cocoa & Fig. More...

We had cupcakes from Cocoa & Fig for my daughter's wedding reception, and they were fabulous! We had a variety of flavors, including a Tiramisu cupcake that was created just for us as it is the groom's favorite dessert! The cupcakes were beautifully arranged on a cupcake tower and included cards that matched the color scheme identifying the flavors. The coordinator we worked with was wonderful- so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Cocoa & Fig for all of your cupcake needs! More...

You'll never want any other cupcake. Cocoa & Fig's Sinfully Chocolate cupcake is THE best chocolate cupcake you may ever eat in your life. Please believe me: I live for sweets, I am a chocolate SNOB (will only order Vosges from Chicago), and I've tried a lot of desserts/places in the Twin Cities. I've tried other flavors and loved them too (Peanut Butter Bombe -- AWESOME, S'mores -- AWESOME), and although they are 100% perfect, it's hard to turn away from Sinfully Chocolate as it is beyond perfection. I've gotten the cake pops as gifts and were told they were wonderful, and have also tried the flourless chocolate cake which was rich, high-quality, and enjoyable, although not the best flourless cake I've ever had. The DT shop is delightful and the staff are friendly. In my opinion they are all-around top notch. More...

Although expensive, the desserts provided by Cocoa & Fig were raved about all night. My husband and I knew their stuff was great, that's why we went straight to them for our wedding dessert. They were more than willing to create the kind of cake we wanted, as well as hundreds of French Macaron cookies that everyone kept going back for. They were delicious. Because we spent so many date-lunches ending at the Cocoa & Fig location downtown, the cookies were sort of a sentimental thing for us, so I'm not sure if we would have spent the money if it didn't hold that kind of value to us, but I'm glad we did!

Lauren (the dessert coordinator)  & the staff at Cocoa & Fig did a great job with the wedding cake that I ordered.  I was unable to attend a wedding, but wanted to purchase the cake as a gift - despite my being in California, Lauren kept me in the loop, and the staff worked quickly to create a beautiful cake w/ some great personal touches that the bride was very happy with.  They were very friendly, helpful, and professional, and helped with everything from the design of the cake to coordinating the delivery w/ their courier.   Since I was planning remotely with a limited amount of time, I needed to find a bakery that knew it's stuff!   I definitely made the right choice.

Cocoa & Fig was very easy and professional to work with throughout the whole process. Our tasting was very informative and delicious! We ended up ordering a traditional cake and having a small dessert table with some of their mini desserts, which are amazing (both beautiful and very tasty)! They were quick to respond to emails and were very thorough and detailed with their contract and information which really helps keep the stress level down - you don't have to worry about checking in on them. On the day, they arrived when they said they would and everything looked and tasted perfect. We highly recommend! More...

Cocoa and Fig is a great vendor for your wedding! They did an amazing job from start to finish! The tasting was fabulous, they really listened to our theme and incorporated great ideas to go with our color scheme, they consistently emailed you with any questions and verified everything before performing any work. We did a small 2 tier cake - which was the centerpiece of our dessert table. We had cupcakes, dessert shooters, cake lollipops, and mini carrot cake cookies. They even took the time to make an incredible display of it all, it was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding day that family and friends are still talking about! More...

I use cocoa and fig for my daughter's one month and 1st bday.  All I can say is, WOW!!  They did such an amazing job for my daughters 1st bday cake.  All I had to do was send them pictures of what I had in mind and choose the colors.  And Yes,  I did everything over email.  My cake was so beautifully done.  Every detailed work on the cake was perfect.  It shows how talented they are just by looking at their cakes.  I also order 2 macaron towers, Fruit tarts, strawberries, lollipop cake and tiramisu.  I'm so glad my wonderful florist recommended this place to me.  I highly recommend this place if you're looking for the perfect fondant cake and please do delivery.  I believe it's 50 bucks but well worth the hassle and worries.

Cocoa & Fig are fantastic! As soon as we walked into their office (that felt more like a home) and met Joe, we were won over. Everything Cocoa & Fig stands for fit our personalities and our vision for the wedding to a "t." Their baked goods are seriously too die for, the most flavorful, moist, decadent desserts I have ever tasted. And not just one of them was good, they all were. They were so good we ended up going with a dessert bar/table which included pudding shooters, macarons, mini cupcakes and cupcake pops. They also paid attention to all the little details, incorporating our colors wherever they could and the dessert labels were also in the same pattern we used for our table place cards! Everyone, including our photographer was impressed with the table! One of my good friends was disappointed when he saw that we didn't have a cake (he's a big pie and cake person), but once he took a bite out of one of the cake pops he ecstatic to have the dessert table! He too was won over! Thank you Cocoa & Fig team for providing such excellent service and a fabulous dessert table for our special day that everyone will remember! More...

I attended a bridal shower over the weekend which featured cupcakes from Cocoa and Fig.  The bride cannot eat gluten and it was so wonderful to enjoy sweets with her of regular and gluten free varieties.  Everyone enjoyed their choice, but three days later, I can't stop thinking about the **key lime cupcake** I had.  It was amazing, like something you'd see on Cupcake Wars.  It had everything!  I lovely graham cracker crust, a true cupcake center, was filled with key lime pie type filling in the center, then frosted and garnished with lime zest.Go there.  Have the key lime cupcake.  Be impressed!  I was!  :) More...

I don't seek out sweets... not something I crave but Cocoa Fig has changed my mind. I had a chance to try their cupcakes..the cake lollipops and a granola that they also carry. I really was blown away...the flavor and texture of everything was  amazing and mouth watering. I would highly recommend. They have me totally spoiled and must now find out which farmers market they are at. Yum is all i can say.  Very unique but familiar at the same time. I just can't say enough...you must try! More...

Cocoa & Fig provided the cupcakes for our wedding and they were delicious! We had set up a number of cupcake tastings in hopes of finding the most delicious cupcake for our reception. We had gone to a few places and had not been overly impressed. They were dry or had too much frosting on them. We were a little surprised when we set up the tasting with Cocoa & Fig that we had to pay $35 for the tasting (as the other tastings had been free) and had to drive out to Shakopee. Our thought was, these cupcakes better be good! And they were! They were so, so, so good, above and beyond any of the other cupcakes we had tasted and we got to taste like 6 different flavors and a few other types of desserts as well. $35 well spent to find the best cupcakes in the city.

Joe and Laurie were also so easy to work with, flexible, kind and helpful. When we met with Joe, he took the time to get to know us and ask about our event. People loved our cupcakes and we would definitely work with them again and recommend them to family and friends.

We decided we wanted cake pops at our wedding but our cake vendor did not make them, so we started looking elsewhere. We got the recommendation from our venue, who had worked with them before, and we loved them! We drove down to Shakopee for a tasting and everything was delicious. We agreed on different flavors and amounts and they delivered them to our venue in Uptown with no problem. They were the first things gone that night, I barely got one! More...

Oh how I love these people.  I meet them at an Elite event a few years ago and soon became a follower picking up their treats at the farmers markets each week.  So when I got engaged and needed to pick a baker they were the first people I called.  A wedding taste appointment will cost you $25.  (They do this because none of their products are frozen, everything is fresh for you to try)Meet with Joe at their catering location, private room, cute set-up.  My parents were in town and I was able to bring them for the meeting (4 people total).  We started out with 4 or 5 cupcakes.  This way we could taste lots of cake flavor combinations, but they have way way more for you to choose from.       Cocoa & Fig will do their version of "sheet cakes" which they call kitchen cakes.  Kitchen cakes are 3 layers with no decorations.  Great for a budget or if your cake is to be served with a meal (which is the way we decided to go).  So the guest will get a lovely 3 layer confection that looks like it was just sliced out of any big-ol-cake.  We are also doing a small 2-3 tier cutting cake.  I brought in inspiration photos and told Joe that this is what he does and to run with it.  He will sketch up ideas for any custom decorations or styles.  Because we were also interested in desserts by the dozen for other wedding events Joe brought us a small platter of minis to try.  (macaroons, desert shooters, mini tarts/ pies and cake pops!)  Here is how good everything is: Upon seeing the macaroons my mom and i glance at each other and under our breath say we dont really like those.  We each taste 1/2 of a cookie, eyebrows raise, and we consume all samples!  I never knew how good a French Macaroon could be until I understood how it should taste.  *My Fiance will often bribe me with a dozen macaroons from their Nicolette retail local.*We liked it all so much that in the end we ordered a dessert buffet for the groom's dinner, cutting cake in 2 flavors for 250 guests and a 3 tier cutting cake decorated with my inspirations.  I couldn't be happier with the experience and quality.  Joe & Laurie are great and run a wonderful business, I'm really looking forward to my wedding cake!

I am not a cupcake girl. In fact, I'm not a cake girl, frosting girl or sweets girl, but I have to admit, the cupcake lolipop is AMAZING. I hate to spend $2.25 for 2-3 bites of cake, but they were really good bites, that's for sure. More like a truffle on the inside. My nine year old daughter was entranced. We tried several, including our favorites- peanut butter (yum) and red velvet (ditto). We've also enjoyed apple tarts, brioches, cookies and croissants at several farmers markets and have always been very happy. More...

You are very easy going and laid back, just like us and we loved it. Everyone at our wedding requested your information, and we happily gave it to them. Laurie did an amazing job on my bridal shower cake as well. I wanted to match my bridal shower invitation designed, and Laurie delivered. We have been long term clients of Cocoa & fig, and will continue this relationship. THANK YOU LAURIE & JOE More...

Joe and Laurie and Cocoa & Fig were a joy to work with! The cake was probably the most fun and easy part of our wedding planning. They took in lots of ideas that were all over the place and came back to us with exactly what we were looking for but couldn't quite picture beforehand. It was unique, fresh, fun, and exactly us. Our wedding cake was perfect. Our guests couldn't stop commenting on how fun it was and how delicious it tasted. We also loved the yummy and adorable shooters and assorted desserts!

In addition to making our wedding day extra sweet, Cocoa & Fig catered breakfast for our gift opening the next morning. Aside from bending over backwards to meet our needs on the 4th of July, Joe & Laurie made us a delicious spread of foods.

I know it seems unlikely that they could be so perfect--but there is honestly nothing more I could have asked them for! A must for any MN wedding!

I loved working with Joe & Laurie!

We did a dessert bar for our wedding reception and it was AMAZING. Two different types of cupcakes, cake pops, banana shooters and a banana cake for us! Everything was beautifully set up, and gobbled up by our guests.

They were also willing to adjust our numbers in the weeks before the event, and do a special birthday cheesecake for a niece who was turning 15 that day. (needless to say, she was thrilled!)

Can't wait to use them again for other events in our future.

Laurie and Joe at Cocoa & Fig were great to work with! They made planning our wedding cake fun and stress free. Our consultation was very informative and we were able to taste a lot of flavors and see pictures of other cakes they did to get some ideas for ours. I brought in some pieces of our wedding decor and they made our cupcake tier to match or wedding decor. It was beautiful and all of our guests loved the cupcakes!! I would recommend Cocoa & Fig to to all my friends!! Thank you Laurie and Joe! More...

After meeting Laurie I was done cake tasting- her baking/desserts are DELICIOUS. She is the best of the best in the Twin Cities. The dessert table and wedding cake she designed for my wedding were everyone's favorite. My friends and family members have already ordered custom cakes, visited her store downtown for goodies, as well as the farmer's market. THANK YOU LAURIE AND JOE- for making my wedding even SWEETER!!!! More...

Laurie and Joe were great! Right away at the initial tasting they were very responsive and made us both feel very comfortable. They were very willing to work with us on flavors and design (even after we changed our minds). I bake a lot of wedding style cakes, so quality ingredients were really important to me; Cocoa and Fig cakes are superb. Many of our wedding guests commented on how delicious our cake was. They were prompt for delivery and billing, and the cake looked stunning. I would use them again in a heartbeat. More...

Amazing eye for detail and delicious desserts. We had Laura and Joe create our dessert table with tiramisu and banana pudding shooters, fruit tarts, cake pops, peanut butter pops, and babycake cupcakes. Our table looked so impressive and the desserts tasted like perfection. We had them make a small cake for us and they even made a replica of our monogram to put on it. The cakes were so unique in a hexagonal shape! The satisfied my biggest request which was to have amazing desserts at my wedding! Everyone loved them! And not to mention that they are just fantastic people to work with! More...

Yep, That would be MOI, Face Pressed Up Against The Glass Window. You had me at CUPCAKE!!! It's just not fair that a Girl is Seduced into Forgetting her Figure due to your Mini Works of Frosting Art in your Skyway Window!!! Sky High Whipped Swirly Q's of Frosting Perfection & I am a Little Girl again, Pink Frilly Dress, & Frosting Proudly on my Nose.I know, I know, you have other Pastries:Macaroons, Scones, Brioche,& Brownies to name a few,but I just can't seem to explore past the cupcakes. If I'm gonna lose myself to a Calorie Orgy, I'm only givin it up for Frosting, you make it hard to be a Good, Frosting Free Girl.No need to bag it,I SKIP out of your Euro Bakery Inspired shop, like a Little Girl on a Sugar High on an Easter Morning, licking the Frosting off Your Work of Art. I have very few weaknesses that make me weak in the knees, & obviously Meat isn't one of them, but a life without Frosting, I would not want to live.Marie Antionette would have agreed with me, "let them Eat Cupcakes' 5 out of 5 Tiara's More...

I had the pleasure to experience the deliciousness that is Cocoa & Fig at a catered Christmas party.  By far my favorite was the Smoked Salmon. Crunchy Coconut Shrimp, Roast Beef on Crostini, Thai Chicken Skewers were equally tasty.  The Chocolate and Key Lime Pie desserts were served in mini shot glasses, a great presentation!  I understand their staff is knowledgeable and super helpful as well.

Cocoa & Fig is amazing! We had a wonderful time at the tasting, and got a great feeling for all they had to offer. We went with a combination of mini cupcakes and fruit tarts for each table, and the designs were beautiful. Laurie is so talented! We received many compliments on how flavorful the desserts were, and I only wish my husband and I would have been able to indulge in a few more of the desserts! I would highly recommend Cocoa & Fig to anyone who is looking for beautifully decorated, delicious, and reasonably-price desserts. More...

Simply put, Cocoa & Fig is AMAZING! Laurie and Joe are true professionals; helpful, flexible, creative and reliable. Each of the desserts they provided us was exceptional and the custom R2-D2 wedding cake they cooked up was absolutely stellar! HIGHLY recommended!

I can't recommend Cocoa & Fig highly enough! If I could give them more than 5 stars, I definitely would. Our entire experience with them was phenomenal.

We were having a tough time finding a baker who could make a high-quality vegan cake. Laurie was so open and accommodating. When we went in for our consultation, she had made a variety of different flavors of vegan cake and vegan frosting for us to try. She led us to the tasting area, where she had laid out separate tasting plates for each person, with pretty little placemats and pre-labeled note-taking sheets. I was extremely impressed by her organization and preparedness. She also invited us to tour her kitchen, which was absolutely immaculate.

Laurie allowed us to custom-design our cake, and was totally flexible with our requests. The end result was exactly what I had imagined--she really brought our ideas to life. Of course, the cake was also delicious! We served two different flavors, and the guests raved about both of them. No one had any idea that the cakes were vegan. I wouldn't hesistate to use Cocoa & Fig for all my future cake-baking needs.

Cocoa & Fig is a hidden GEM! We were blown away by the quality of their ingredients, attention to detail, and professionalism. Compared to our other cake tastings, we left Cocoa & Fig knowing we would definitely go with them. Pricing was comparable and they were completely flexible with how they would design the cake and the flavors we would include. Loved, loved, loved them - and the cake was highly raved about at our reception! Thanks Laurie & Joe! More...

I was lucky enough to get to sample some of Cocoa & Fig's fancy little sweets at the last Yelp elite event.  The chocolate bouchons were so cute and heavenly.  I would love to have a French themed dinner party and serve these little cork shaped French brownies dusted with powdered sugar at the end.  I also tried the layered desserts in shot glasses including key lime pie and tiramisu.  They did not disappoint.  According to their website they cater weddings and corporate functions all the way down to a child's baptism or birthday party.  I'm not usually big on cake, but the flavors on their website sound amazing.  If anyone wants to surprise me...my birthday is in February and I'll take the spicy carrot cake with lemon cream cheese frosting.

Like Lilly, I had the pleasure of being introduced to Cocoa & Fig at the yelp event and everything that they served up was very, very, good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone in need of finely executed, and delicious, baked goods and desserts with a bit of style. Nothing was overly sweet and everything had the right amount of "rich" going on in each sample... the tiramisu and key lime cups... the tarts... the red velvet cupcakes... and everthing else... excellent to the one.I need to hurry up and get married so I have an excuse to use them.

Laurie & Joe of Cocoa & Fig do a WONDERFUL job. We had so much fun at the tasting, and we loved that there were so many combinations of icings and cakes to choose from. We ended up having a cupcake tower (a great way to cut out cake-cutting fees!) and so we were able to offer our guests 3! different flavors to choose from. They created the tower to match our theme, and they even included a top layer angel food cake (the bride's favorite) that was decorated to match our invitations. We even were able to freeze the leftovers and have enjoyed the cupcakes since! We found out after the big day that they had two other weddings in other parts of the metro area and we were impressed that they made all of the deliveries and set-ups themselves. Another great thing is that on your one year anniversary, they will make your a complimentary fresh cake to have to celebrate! We also asked them to include breakfast pastries in our order for us to have at our gift opening the next morning. Cocoa & Fig does not disappoint! More...

I would recommend Cocoa & Fig to anyone hosting an event of any kind. They use only the best ingredients, everything is super fresh and amazingly delicious. For my wedding, Cocoa & Fig created an incredible dessert display of cupcakes, French macaron cookies and flowers that my guests were seriously oooing and aaaahhhing over the entire evening! I love working with Laurie and Joe -- they approach each event with a unique vision, and with the simplest ingredients they are able to create a totally customized experience. More...

Joe and Laurie from Cocoa and Fig are fabulous people to work with. They take into account your wants/needs and make sure to incorporate them into the design, flavor and flare. They are wonderful to work with and their cake and cupcakes are amazing. Highly recommend them for any event where a cake or food catering is needed. More...

Cocoa and Fig held a "tasting" for us of menu items we were interested in. We paid for the tasting, but the cost came off our catering bill. It was a wonderful dinner for four (my parents came along). And we gained more ideas at the tasting for our wedding (like Peanut Butter Pops, yum!).

The food was flavorful, interesting, delicious, pleasing to the eye and seasonal, all things we appreciate. Laurie created a menu of several small appetizers for our fall wedding outdoor buffet. We also had a signature beverage - hot apple cider (perfect for the slightly chilly day). The staff was outstanding - professional, knowledgeable, flexible and appreciative of the beautiful environment my mom had created at her home. My aunt enjoyed them so much she hired them to cater her 25th wedding anniversary.

I would definitely recommend Cocoa & Fig and hire them again if I need catering.

We booked at the last minute (one month before our date) and Cocoa & Fig did an amazing job all the way through delivery. Laurie was very helpful working with what we hoped to provide for our guests at a sweet table, with presentation and advice. We watched several of our guests walk up many times to our cupcake tower. The cupcakes were a huge hit and so easy! More...
