Monumental Cupcakes in Jamaica Plain Has Been Sold, Is Apparently Closing

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a popular neighborhood cupcake shop is saying farewell.

According to a post within the Jamaica Plain Facebook group page, Monumental Cupcakes has a sign out front saying "It has been our great pleasure and honor to serve you! Monumental Cupcakes has been sold! But -- we look forward to something very Monumental opening here in the spring! We might host a farewell party, if so, we'd love to invite you." It is not known what might be replacing the South Street store, nor is it known why the place is closing; as soon as we get more information, we will post an update here.

Monumental Cupcakes, which has been in business for nearly 10 years, offers cupcakes as well as donuts, birthday cakes, coffee, tea, and more.

The address for this cupcake shop in Jamaica Plain is: Monumental Cupcakes, 36 South Street, Jamaica Plain, MA, 02130. Its website can be found at

Thanks to a source for initially bringing this to our attention.

[February 4 update: Based on information from a source along with the fact that the phone number for the place appears to be down, it appears that Monumental Cupcakes is now closed.]
