We tried three times this little place, and were more than pleased. DO NOT DESPAIR because of the very long waiting list to order.... It takes about 15 minutes at most and you reach the counter. Meanwhile you can enjoy the drawings and the large variety of cakes. We ordered hot chocolate (excellent) and various cheescake - all very good.... More

We went for breakfast one week ago, the place is small but cozy. We ask for coffee latte and scones and it was a great choice. Great service as well. Definitly a must in the Upper East Side of the city, specially if you are planing to stop by the Guggenheim or the MET after.

Best cheesecake I ever ate. I never got baked cheesecake until I went to New York and this was by far the best I ate there. The base is thin and dark, the filling thick and creamy without being overly rich. Really with it as you get a huge slab for only $4.50 The shop is tiny but really cute.... More

My wife and I were in the city for lunch and we wanted a special dessert. This place had them. My wife had the red velvet cupcake with a pumpkin latte and I had the cherry almond scone with a cafe au lait. All were perfect. They just have two tables to sit at but we took ours to go... More

Everything's so delicious and tasteful, they rule the world of sweetness and patisserie. A delight for the eyes and the sense of taste. A pleasure that every human being should feel and experience. I almost tasted it all, the crunchy apple muffins, the chocolate banana muffins, the cheesecake, the triberry muffins and scones, the classy apple pie... Everything is crazily... More

A very nice place to have a dessert. The price is reasonable and they have one of the best cheesecakes I've ever eaten.

We walked quite a ways to get to this cute little bakery - it was very tiny but decorated so nicely for Thanksgiving. We shared the last slice of pumpkin cheesecake and it was delicious! Smooth,creamy and very tasty!

I love this little place in Yorkville, up on 2nd Avenue, at 86th. I got a recommendation to go there and am so glad I went to the effort to find this place. I love everything about it, the home cooked feel that it has, the way everything is displayed, the fact that it is a one off and not... More

I had heard about this place in our search for the best cheesecake in New York so we definitely made it a priority to check when in New York last month. It was a bit out of the way, or at least out of the way from where we were going. Plus there seemed to be quite a bit of... More

Every three months we head to NYC to visit our son and his wife. We always look forward to heading to "the hens" for a wonderful treat on our first morning. We happily tuck into scones that are mouth watering and so tasty. Sometimes we even go a step further and tuck into one (or two!) of their awesome muffins.... More
