I used to go to magnolia a fee times every week and now I go maybe a fee times every year. Their prices have increased which is fine but they've shrunken the size of their cupcakes and now have shrunken the size of other desserts.

It's cool to go with your girlfriends and share cupcakes while chatting just like in the "Sex & the city" tv serie :))) We love everything from Magnolia: carrot cake, cupcakes and red velvet were delicious!

The Magnolia Bakery on Bleecker Street was the original so definitely worth paying a trip to this shop. It was featured in Sex in the City. It is obviously still a favourite amongst the New Yorkers as well as tourists! We went back a fair few times to try their amazingly delicious, fluffy cupcakes - I highly recommend the red... More

Loved their regular iced and cheesecake varieties. They definitely do live up to all that hype. Highly recommend the red velvet cheesecake.

We enjoyed a birthday cake from this shop and then had to come back and get cupcakes before the end of our visit. I love a good cupcake, and this place always make the best! Always pay Magnolia a visit whenever I am in the city.
