“Just plain good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

We stopped here for a cup of coffee and sweet. The brownie was divine and the orange cake was delicious (according to my spouse). There isn't much seating but a nice love seat sufficed.

“Absolutely amazing ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I stumbled upon this bakery as we were leaving the city. I got a blueberry bran muffin and three cupcakes. I made the 6 hour drive back home and then ate these. WOW! Out of this world! The cupcakes are so incredibly moist. I tried other bakeries in the city and they don't compare. This place is a gem. I would include a picture of the chocolate cupcakes but they were devoured. The muffin was also just as amazing. Very moist and amazing tasting, but not incredibly heavy which was great. The gentleman working was so nice. Will be my first stop on my next trip to NYC!
