Best cupcake ever

We stopped here to pick up a sweet treat for the train ride home. The Coconut cupcake was the best I ever had-hands down. I wish I had bought a whole dozen-

I had a really bad experience here. I was walking by and everything looked delicious. I tried a red velvet cupcake. After the first bite I noticed the cream tasted and smelled off (like meat). I let my girlfriend taste it as well, who agreed. We went back to the cashier, telling him that the cream had probably gone bad... More

Couldn't get into Katz, which had ben recommended by friends who used to live nearby. Decided to venture in to Sugar Café -as we needed to eat! Omelettes are excellent - as is the coffee. The staff are very friendly, and there was a good relaxed atmosphere.

Stopped in for dessert after a meal at Katz's just up the street. Thought we would eat light. So many choices. 6 items and 2 days later, everything we bought was quite good. Particularly like the Red Velvet Cheesecake. Yum

Another happy NY accident! We got off the subway and wanted a cup of coffee so we stopped in here. Along with the coffee we had a piece of red velvet cheesecake which was to die for!! Th guys at the counter are delightfully funny and the food we saw being delivered to other tables looked fantastic. We ended up... More

My friend and I were in New York and stumbled on this 24 hour gem whilst looking for our subway! Food was huge and crazy good. Good prices. Our server Sammy was amazing.. Very charming and very fun! Was a cool place to have a late night feast after the bar!

A reasonably priced cafe serving good food with pleasant service. You don't come here for the haute cuisine but what they do, they do well. Very affable server who looked after us, tasty food and even a decent cup of tea for us Brits cast adrift in an ocean of lukewarm coffee. Recommended.
