Mmm cupcakes. Where can I find yummy cupcakes in Philly?

Does anyone have any recommendation of where I can find tasty cupcakes in downtown Philadelphia? My SO is craving cupcakes and I promised to bring them home for dessert tonight, and I am at a loss as to where to find them. West of Broad is preferable, but anywhere Center City-ish would be fine.

13th and Walnut, the Naked Chocolate Cafe is known for awesome cupcakes

Brown Betty in Nothern Liberties is amazing. They have a multitude of flavors from pineapple to carrot to strawberry. I am typically not a dessert guy, but I will go out of my way to get these.

Flying Monkey in Reading Terminal is great. Go now - the market closes at 6pm!

I have no personal experience, but a friend of mine who lives in Philadelphia runs a cupcake website with reviews of various bakeries. It hasn't been updated in almost a year, but might still be of some use.

Response by poster: You guys are great. I got some at the Naked Chocolate cafe, which were good, but now I 've convinced my SO to try all of the cupcake places in Philly. I am looking forward to the Flying Monkey, Brown Betty and a place on 17th & Walnut that I can't remember the name of now.
