Billy's Bakery has THE BEST coconut cake. I usually don't do meringue frosting, but this was PHENOM! It's also great how you can customize your order on size and layers. I ordered a two layer, 6 inch cake and it was only $20!

Bit of a hike to get to, but worth the effort ... gorgeous cupcakes, cheesecakes and muffins and seriously THE BEST coffee in NYC (Starbucks will never be the same again ....) Coconut cheesecake, peanut butter bar, banana cup (with waffle biscuits throughout) and red velvet cupcakes .... sounds sickly sweet but none of these delectations were overly sweet. Great young team that work there too and the area of Greenwich is historic, photogenic and I hear it's where all the celebs stay when they're in town ....

Good cupcake though a little too heavy. I guess cupcakes were more perfect. Great selection of premium tea and tables to sit and enjoy. Miss restrooms though. But a good spot while your are in soho

I couldn't enter Billy's a year ago because lots of people made a long line and pretty crowded as overflowing from the shop.
Accomplished my purpose this time.
The cupcake was too much sweet for me, but maybe moderate sweet for American people. 
I should have ordered black coffee, instead of caffe latte.
The dinner tonight is Pio Pio in Hell's Kitchen.

I'm not a big fan of Billy's cupcakes, but their cakes are very good. I get either their carrot cake or Banana cake as they are both very good. The cake is moist and the frosting is rich and very yummy.

They have a very good Blondie and a very good peanut butter square.
