“Delicious cakes!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon tea here. The Mini Brooklyn Blackout Cupcakes are a good size to accompany a small latte or herbal tea. Try also the Red Velvet cupcake!
There are four or five tables to sit down at if you are fortunate; when we arrived there was nobody, but then the place suddenly filled up.

“Lovely place”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Love their New York cheesecake. It's light and just the right sweetness. Their pecan pie was yummy too. Ladies serving were friendly and they serve service drinking water which is hard to find in New York.

“disorganized but tasty”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

This tiny bakery is very crowded and the "order here, pay there" system doesn't work very well because you have people constantly bumping into each other in the relatively small space. But the proof is in the cupcakes. People just keep on coming back. If cupcakes aren't your thing, there's also a variety of very pretty cakes (someone clearly takes his or her time making them beautiful), pies, and so on.

“Lovely oasis of home charm”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Went for desert after burgers at Stargate. The store is tiny and has a real homey New England feel, almost out of place in NYC. The proprietors are ultra friendly and the cakes are yummy. Try the Pecan pie, mmmmm. There are only a few tables, so you have to be lucky to get one. We were there about 20 mins and witnessed a steady stream of New Yorkers getting their cake fix; recommendation indeed!
