I live in Dunwoody, so I traveled about 20 mintues to get to Sweet Pockets. Sadly, though, I did not receive a warm welcome that I would have expected from a cupcake shop. Not only did I not get greeted when I walked in, I was literally ignored for several minutes. There were 2 girls behind the counter, one on the computer and one on the phone. Neither one looked up or turned around to acknowledge that I had arrived or to indicate that someone would be with me shortly. So, in the meantime, I browsed the selection of cupcakes. I had decided to try the red velvet and starlight varieties. Finally, the girl hung up the phone and asked what she could get me. First, I tried to order a red velvet cupcake and was told that she had sold all of them to the person on the phone. So, I tried for option 2, the Starlight. Again, was told they were all sold as well. Why had she not taken them out of the case before asking me for my order, I have no idea. She also was not apologetic. I was in the store at about 1:00, so it was no where near closing time and they were out of both my choices. I ended up getting a banana cupcake with peanut butter frosting. It was good, but not my first or second choice. I really wanted to like Sweet Pockets, but in the end, it left me sour.
