The place had a very small and cute atmosphere, with the classic bakery smell that everyone knows. Known for their banana pudding, that's the best dish Magnolia offers. It's a great place to relax and sit down with friends for desserts.

Not only was the cake dry and surprisingly flavorless, the frosting was butter cream. BUTTER CREAM. They shouldn't even call it red velvet. The banana pudding was still great. I make my own icebox cake now so haven't had that in a while.

4.5/5 this was really good!!! I liked their cheesecake with blueberries on top though it was a little pricier ($9) I thought it was worth it. Banana pudding was good as well. Honestly everything looked good. The location was convenient near Rockefeller!

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Can't hurt to order it in advance. We did that for my dad's birthday and it was definitely worth it, since we wanted a specific flavor.
