Their red velvet cheesecake was quite good, I have to admit, but their german chocolate cake was not as moist as I'd have hoped. In fact, I make a better version myself!

If you are looking for a treat for yourself - or a nice hostess gift when you are on the hook to bring dessert - stop here! They have a great variety of cupcakes and treats - a tad pricey but actually they are worth the price. Generously sized. If you want something you don't see in the case, that's a basic item like a chocolate cupcake with just plain butter cream icing, they usually are happy to whip it up if their supplies are ready. Forget the diet when you stop here! Good place if you need a pick me up.

This is a quaint little bakery but the cupcakes were not very impressive. I would not wait in line for these. I think they are very pretty but they were dry and not very tasty. Will not go back.

The cup cake was delicious, but I think it's as good as anywhere else. This bakery is made famous for the appearance in Sex and The City, and there are better bakery's around.

On a five day trip to NY we had to revisit three times,the cup cakes here are out of this world.Try the vanilla flavour cup cake and the chocolate cake is great too.,Why can't we get cake like this in the UK? Go buy a box of four, grab a Starbucks coffee and then back to your hotel room and enjoy.Total bliss
