Cup cake heaven

We loved the Magnolia Bakery straight away. The friendly stuff, the unbelievable amount of different cupcakes, the "hmmmm"-smelling fresh coffee and the 1000 things to look at. And off course the idea that we had a coffee at the same place like the Sex and the City girls ....

I stop in every time I walk by Magnolia's on Bleeker St., If I am hungry I get a piece of one of the delicious cakes. If I am not that hungry I just grab a cupcake. It does not seem to be as crowded now that they have opened up outpost all over the city.

Best cheese cake. We had the chocolate, red velvet and vanilla. I think vanilla is still the best one.

THE BEST vanilla cupcake I have ever tasted! My daughter said the Red Velvet cake was delicious. My husband chose a chocolate cake with buttercream frosting. While the frosting was excellent the cake was a bit bland. Still very good though.

A really good cupcake, but not one to wait in long lines for. Never understood the level of hype folks have for this very fine bakery.

Bought half a dozen cupcakes to bring to new year's dinner and was embarrassed at how crumbly and dry the cake was.

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.
