We were on our way home from a work trip to the city on Valentine's Day so as moms we stopped here to grab some treats for our families. It was very busy because of the day but they were very efficient. I got a dozen for $12 and they were nicely presented in a plastic container with a band... More

The gluten-free mini cupcakes are tasty but expensive ($37.50 for 25). Five different flavor choices were available the day we went. Certainly worth stopping by if you are near Times Square and want a gluten-free treat. This branch is on 7th avenue near 39th street.

This location is just off Times Square, and has no seating. Staff were friendly enough, we ended up buying a sample pack of 25. There are two cupcakes of each kind, so enough to share and sample each one. Cupcakes are small enough to taste and savour and not too large to make them overwhelming.

I went with my friend when we were in NYC 3 weeks ago. We weren't overly hungry and had walked past this place a few times and liked the look of it. We went at about 8/9pm and the staff didn't speak when we went in. I had a look to see what I wanted (bear in mind I've never... More

While in the city running errands we passed a Baked by Melissa shop. We had to stop in and purchased two dozen assorted cupcakes. They are tiny bites of happiness.

I saw this place a few times while walking around the area. Today I was in no rush so I walked in and purchased some of there mini cupcakes. Each mini cupcakes was priced at a $1.00. I tried the tie dye, red velvet and snicker doodle flavors. Personally I think they were good but nothing special in my opinion.

We stopped in her on the recommendation of my sister's co-worker who raved about these cupcakes! We were not disappointed! They were so good and there were so many unique varieties to choose from. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The shop next door had all gluten free products.

I love cupcakes and baking, so when I heard about this place I had to visit. I was not dissapointed. My husband and I shared a box of 12, 4 macrons and 8 cupcakes, and they were all delicious. They are a little pricey at $1 each, but so yummy. There is a gluten free shop next door, which was... More

Small little cupcakes at a rather large price, but so worth it. Fun, unique experience plus tasty cupcakes equals great time!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
