Various kinds of beers with different tastes are fantastic. Foods were good too. However I do not remember what I have ordered rigged now.

We made a point of trekking across Manhattan on a sweltering summer day to buy cheesecake from Two Little Red Hens and we were not disappointed for our efforts. Everything looked amazing in the bakery; we tried the cherry cheesecake that night and the Brooklyn Blackout Brownie cupcakes. Everything was so incredibly fresh! We bought one 6" NY cheesecake to...

I had almost given up on eating cheesecake just due to the quality differences at different restaurants but I knew I had to try it from the Two Little Red Hens and it exceptional. We bought a 6" cheesecake for six of us and it was enough to fuel our dessert needs for several nights. Neat little place, I wonder... More

Every time we go to New York we go to this bakery. They have mini cupcakes and we buy them for the staff at the hotel we stay at. To say we are treated nicely is an understatement. I absolutely love their cherry scones and if you are a chocoholic their Brooklyn cake is to die for. You can't go... More

A cake shop with special and characteristic decoration, good for stop by to have a piece of cake. However the shop is bit small, you would have luck if you can find a seat without waiting. Most of the people came by buying the cheesecake, there is a queue always. I tired the cheesecake and cookies, would highly recommend their... More

생각보다 아담한 가게 사이즈와 컵케이크 물량에놀람. 내가 잘못찾아왔나? 했는데 먹는 순간 모든 의문이 풀림. 정말 달것 처럼 생겼는데 전혀 달지 않으면서 입에서 사르르 녹아내림. 브루클린 블랙아웃과 레드벨벳이 주력상품인 것으로 알고 있으나 블랙아웃보다 아메리칸크림이 더더 맛있음. 컵케익 세개에 11불정도. 컵케익사고 근처 식료품점에서 과일사서 센트럴파크에서 먹음. 근처 센트럴파크는 매우 한적한 편임 Smaller shop and less cupcakes than I thought. But the cupcakes... More

I just spent $44 for a cake that should have sold for $8 at Gristede's. Dry, tasteless and awful. Never again.

Being from out of town, I actually didn't know what this was. Once we arrived and got in line, I thought there was something wrong, but thy are just that busy of a bakery. Super nice staff, not always the same about the customers. If you want something special, call two days ahead. They don't do cupcakes in the morning,... More
