My husband found this place on a list recommending best cheesecake in NY so we thought we would give it a go.

Two Little Red Hens is a small and delicious bakery. I had a few of their cupcakes and they were amazing. They also have a lot of other stuff.

Did read all of the excellent reviews on best cupcakes etc. so decided to try while in the area. I stopped in on Monday got the red velvet mini cupcakes and one regular size red velvet cupcake just my opinion it wasn't anything special just an average cupcake!

I've been waiting to try baked New York cheesecake IN New York for over 30 years.... And now that I'm here, and tried other supposedly 'good' cheesecakes, the final assessment of taste, quality and freshness goes to Two Little Red Hens in Upper East Side..... 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
