An Interview with Michael Wulf from Swirls Cupcakery on Buffalo Eats! | Restaurants
There has been a ‘Cupcake Renaissance’ of sorts in Western New York and Michael Wulf from Swirl’s Cupcakery is part of the group that is leading the way. At only 19 years of age, he is one of the youngest restaurant owners I’ve met and just opened Swirl’s Cupcakery in November 2011. Located right behind Taste and Tantalus on Main Street in East Aurora, his shop is in a great location right in the middle of the village. He’s been getting some buzz around the internet and just recently was on CW 23′s Wingin It a few months ago. Michael took some time out of his busy schedule of baking cupcakes and running a business to answer some of our questions, here’s what he had to say about his favorite places to eat and hang out in WNY…
Right now, where are your favorite places to eat in Western New York?
Michael: I’m all about supporting unique small places. One of my favorites that most people don’t know about is Minty Wellness in Darien Center. It’s an all Vegan restaurant and the food is so amazing. For a more formal dinner I really enjoy Rick’s on Main in East Aurora. For lunch, I really like the Elm Street Bakery and all the soups and sandwiches that they offer. I’m also always at Wegmans picking up a $6 meal because I’m usually always on the go.
Where do you like to go to hang out with friends on the weekends?
Michael: After work I’ll usually head over to Riley Street Station for some apps or if I go out of EA I’ll usually be at the French Pub in Lancaster. Both have just a fun atmosphere. I’m really trying to get downtown more and explore the great food scene there. I also really enjoy Pearl Street for a good time.
