Everyone goes here for the cakes, which are amazing, but honestly they have the most perfect muffins and scones, as well as pies. They are perfectly baked, crispy on the outside, tender on the inside full of the star ingredients. The tri-berry collection is a staple for me on weekends, but their seasonal muffins, scones, and pies (particularly pumpkin/ginger/peach scones... More

This is a small bakery, but they do have tables where you can sit and have a coffee while partaking of their delicious pastries. Also a good place to get a nice cake for a special occasion, as they do great decorating.

We ordered a pumpkin and plain cheesecake with fruit sauce and loved them both. There are only a few tables but it's very quaint and cozy. I would highly recommend this place for dessert.

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!
