Lovely cheesecake!

Such a cute little bakery felt like going into my grandmas kitchen! Cherry cheesecake was so nice but was so filling so I took it back to the hotel to nibble on later 🙊 if I had more days left in ny would definitely go back to try the coconut cupcake!

Came here for one of the best Cheescakes in NYC. Was not disappointed, skipped dinner due to the size of the portion! Also enjoyed the mini muffins.

This tiny little bakery has only a few small tables, so plan on picking up food to go. I had a tripple berry scone that was chock full of fresh blueberrys, strawberrys and rasberries being held together by scone batter. It was so delicious I'm still thinking about it. I'm a cupcake fan, so I'll be heading back on my... More

Cupcakes to die for! I ordered a peanut butter and chocolate cupcake. It was deliciously moist, creamy, and flavorful! I bought a whole carrot cake for my son's birthday party and chocolate fudge cupcake for my husband. Everyone was pleased with their special desserts! Definitely worth the trip!

Every bakery, restaurant has red velvet something or another, but the red velvet cup cake from 2 little Red Hens is to die for. However the Brooklyn Blackout beats the red velvet hands down, that is a must have when visiting. There are not a lot of places to sit, so be prepared to wait for a spot (after you... More

Naturallt friendly without the attitude of being 100% goodness. The people who work here actually eat what they make. They can give you detailed descriptions about the flavors and ingredients about the classics that they offer like no one else. Coconut macaroons with or without dark choc coating. Sticky buns. Cinnamon buns. Scones with candied ginger and many other clever... More

I went for the cheesecake and was not disappointed. Beautiful little shop in the upper east side. This bakery beats Juniors cheesecake hands down. There is no comparison in terms of freshness and taste.

Their cupcakes are wonderful and the little cakes for 2-4 are equally terrific. They will custom it for events and have excellent hot drinks such as Cappucino and espresso. there is a small area to sit and eat. They also take orders for all of the holidays and the pies are as good as you can get around the ues.

Not a fancy looking Bakery nor one that displays much to invite you in, but when you get in to this tiny store, there are customers who know EXACTLY what they want- a delicious cupcake. They are sized for 2 people. A variety of flavors and FRESH between 11-2pm. My family loves Two Little Red Hens!

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
