Better the 2nd time.

I stopped by again after visiting last year and have a better review. They still don't have any Holiday cookies but their cupcakes had a Holiday theme and were very good. And the price was good. Glad I came back.

Dry cupcakes with too sweet icing, expensive for the size. The location was cute and inside had an old fashioned feel but that's about it. Wouldn't eat them again

Was not impressed by this bakery even though its suppose to be # 21 of best bakeries. The staff didn't even know that. Seemed like I knew more about the bakery then they did. Not very friendly.

Its cute. It's address of 59 and 1/2 reminds me of Harry Potter. The taste of the baked goods is good, but a bit "too sweet" for my taste. I recommend anything with pecans in it.

My husband's first impression of Sugar Bakeshop was the music they were playing when we entered. He heard 1940's jazz/pop - Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra. You may think that's irrelevant, but, to my husband, it sets the stage for a pleasant experience. He describes the ambience as “friendly with people doing work they liked”. When I stepped into Sugar I... More

My only regret was that I couldn't eat more. I sampled several of sugars products including the chocolate chip cookies and several flavors of cupcakes and found them to be amongst the best I have ever had.

I love to bake, cook and try new recipes. I am a very good cook and I have great baking skills. Even my family thinks so, but I only buy cake and cupcakes from Sugar Bakeshop for any special occasion. Every family member gets a variety of cupcakes for birthdays, graduations..It is not cheap, but the price does not matter... More

They have some of the best cupcakes we have ever eaten especially one called Lady Baltimore (7 minute frosting, and the cake contains raisins, figs and nuts?), they also have a great blueberry vanilla cupcake as well as a lemon curd to name but a few.
