All we chose to have was coffee and delious home baked deserts. They had a decent selection of deserts to chose from and you could add ice cream and whip cream to top it off.

Clearly lots of people pop in here as part of their "sex and the city" tour because it was featured in the show and is right around the corner from Carrie's apartment. There were a bunch of other couples doing the same thing. Still the cupcakes were adequate and the lemonade was a delicious mix of sweet and sour. I... More

The place is beautiful, and all the employees are smiling and seem to be very happy. One of them was peeling a peach for the peach cupcakes, which we should have tried. My daughter likes the snores cupcake the best. It had a hint if cinnamon which I didn't like, and the cake part was a little dry. The vanilla... More

We visited Magnolia bakery after reading other people's reviews and we were not disappointed. The banana cream pie was to die for, we sat in a lovely park just opposite the bakery to eat it and watched the world go by. We were given a fork, spoon and napkin, the staff were pleasant and at the time we visited which... More

Don't leave NY without having some delicious Banana Bread Pudding and Cupcakes. Thr bakery can get busy but don't let the line discourage you. It goes by quick and before you know it you'll be enjoying your sweet baked goods.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
