Last visit was 2007. Stumbled in with my sister-in-laws on a cold rainy day, thankful for a hot drink and a sweet. The cupcakes that were so sought after a decade earlier are now past their prime. Hundreds of others have found ways to do it better. Don't seek out for a hyped-up cupcake- much too sweet.

we had a kind of cheesecake with salted caramel and the "famous" banana puding... It IS famous!!! The taste, the craftmanship, everything has a tremendous quality. I thought this is one of these NY tourist spots but it's not. It is expansive but it is worth every dollar. The only problem i had with the store is that there are... More

My boyfriend and I went appositely to try the banana pudding as we read amazing reviews. We are not fans of puddings, but this one is the best pudding we ever tried! Fresh banana pieces and sweet soft bread within banana pudding give a sweet and delicate flavor. Highly recommended!

This is an extremely good bakery that is frequented by neighborhood folk for the most part. A great find to stumble on.

Delicious cupcakes and all they have is yummy. I gave it a 4-star because this isn't their best location. This location in Greenwich Village is only to buy to take away. They don't have tables where you can sit like their location on the Upper West Side. Try the banana pudin!

Great little bakery, gets busy in the evenings but they keep the line moving quick. Love the banana pudding - rich, thick, and not too sweet.

Famous Magnolia bakery has a lot to offer. I tried a lot of sweets there, some I liked and some I didn't like, but the banana pudding is my absolute favorite! The coffee was great too! The Halloween muffins were not that good but they where nicely decorated so that is a plus. Also the banana pudding with chocolate is... More

I have been to Magnolia Bakery a few times while visiting New York and it is always packed! They are unorganized at checking people out, but that is the hustle & bustle of New York. Everything is SO good there. Bread Pudding is killer and their cupcakes, cakes, cookies are amazing. My favorite is the lemon bars! It is a... More

The line is worth the wait. The staff is supper friendly and helpful. Chocolate cake is well worth it.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
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 stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
