So Little Cupcake has an old school soda shop feel and decor to match. The workers are frosting the cupcakes right behind the counter for everyone to see. I have read other reviews and honestly have never had any "stale" items there. In fact I have been to Magnolia which I found to be too sweet for my taste. It... More

The Little Cupcake Shop recently prepared a cupcake cake for a Bridal dinner in the shape of a bridal gown. It was very pretty, done very professionally and was a big hit at the dinner. The cupcakes were plain, not specialty ones, they were just ok. At $3 per cupcake ($86 for the cake) I would have liked a tastier... More

the folks are quite nice here, and the place has a nice vibe to it, but honestly, anything I've ever gotten there just isn't that good, and a few cupcakes were lousy. Don't know how they manage to keep the place buzzing most of the time

Delicious cupcakes and cakes abound at this local stand-out bakery. A guilty pleasure treat for a special occasion or just because. We love red velvet, German chocolate, carrot, and strawberry shortcake cupcakes - and a slice of any of their cakes is the real indulgence!!! If you haven't been to the original Bay Ridge location, try their store in Manhattan.

Red velvet cupcakes are a must! I also like the carrot cake ones, they have a great assortment of tea and its just a lot of fun to order a few different cupcakes with friends and share them.

First you have to deal with the Poor Service, which then gets you stale products. The counter help is rude and the cupcakes are NOT fresh. The place LOOKS nice but smells of bug-spray & bleach.

Coffee is made to order, which is great because the employees are so sweet. Coffee they use is Italian-Illy-amazing. Such high quality coffee and always fresh. Cupcakes are really good and moist. My favorite is the cloud- vanilla sponge, with almond extract and whipped creamish/frosting in top and sliced almonds. Why would anyone go next door to Starbucks????? When they... More

My daughter loves the red velvet cupcake. I felt the cake part is way to dense, not moist like a cupcake should be, however the lemon cake and carrot cake are excellent. A bit pricy, but not anymore then everywhere else. Nice add to the neighborhood. I would go back.

They just took banana pudding to the next level. It is a cute shop with some nice desserts but banana pudding is tops.
