“The best cheesecake ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I have never been a big fan of plain cheesecake, I thought it was boring. Until I tried the one from Two little red hens, it was so delightful! The place itself is rather small, there are three or four tables, people there were very nice and helpful. I had a piece of cheesecake and iced coffee (they have beans from Irving farm) that was also lovely. They had also many types of cupcakes and my favourite key lime pie which I haven't tried, because my mission was their cheesecake, and a few other pies. I would definitely go there again! Be aware that due to current contruction on the street it might be slightly harder to find this piece of sweet heaven (or for hell for those on diet, it must be very hard to say no to these tempting goods, I haven't even tried)

“Best red velvet! Best bakery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

This place is too good. The fruit pies are amazing. The red velvet is made with cream cheese topping ( not that white other stuff) and by far the best on this planet

Tip--- around the holidays or if ordering for a dinner party --- order in advance!!! Otherwise you get whatever they have. They are super busy

“Yummy ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

The cupcakes are so moist!!! They have great flavor. The icing is also good. Some of the cakes have fillings. The peanut butter and coconut were my favorite, but they all were good.

“great cheescake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

being in NY you want a taste of a NY cheesecake. This one was excellent as were the muffins and scones. Service is good and prices are ok.
We stayed at the Marmara Manhattan and this one was a short walk from the hotel

“Upper East Side Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Living in the UES, this bakery is absolutely the best part of the experience. A delightful store with wonderful coffees and treats to soothe any sweet tooth. From cookies to amazing cupcakes, there's a sweet treat for everyone. The clientele is very loyal as evidenced by the octogenarians that seem to have been going to this establishment for years. It is pretty out of the way for the tourist crowd so that's not really an issue with accessibility. However, if your travels take you to the upper east side, do stop by for a freshly baked peanut butter chocolate cupcake
