Great pastries and coffee. The cakes look amazing. I recommend the banana bread pudding, or a mini chocolate pudding pie. Worth the calories!

This is one of the most quaint bakeries that I have seen in NYC. When I arrived there was one person ahead of me and by the time I was leaving there was a line out the door. I had the banana pudding and loved it. My coworkers got all kinds of treats and everything was amazing. I highly recommend... More

The cupcakes were tasty and some interesting flavours to try but I didn't think they were the world's best cupcakes. They came in a nice box though.

As a massive fan of Sex & the City I had to get along to Magnolia Bakery to check it out. I managed to miss the masses of the organised tours and arrive at a rare quiet moment in the bakery. I was exhausted after walking all day so figured a cupcake and a cuppa would do the trick. There's... More

It's the place the girls from Sex and the City frequent. Their cupcakes are a delight. The brownies are one of the best in the city. The staff is very pleasing and welcoming. It was so close to where I lived so it was a pit stop before getting into the subway.

I was walking around in Manhattan when my sister stops me and tells me that I need to get a taste of Magnolia's before I leave NY, and so I did. I tried the Red Velvet cake, of course, and it was absolutely delicious. The icing is ridiculously good and the cake itself is perfectly prepared. Would love to try... More

Cute boutique and famous bakery in New York. Very fun place to visit, but not the best cupcakes. A little too much icing and not the best taste.
