“Amazing bakery!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is, hands down, the best bakery in NYC. Don't even bother going to Magnolia Bakery for a cupcake!

“I Heart Billy's”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Being a super fan of Magnolia's Bakery, I was excited when Billy's moved into my neighborhood all those years ago. The cupcakes aren't 'exactly' like Magnolia's but it's still good. I'd sell my soul for a pint of their banana pudding and often do at least once a month (-___-) .... The decor is ever so retro chic and makes one feel as if they've entered a time warp, but without all that face distortion and unpleasantness like the movies makes it seem ... Overall, Billy's Bakery is a GOOD time.

“I love cupcakes”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

I love cupcakes and every time I visit my friend in New York I have to stop by Billy's Bakery and treat myself to one of their cupcakes. I'd buy some to bring back to California with me, but I don't think they'd last. I'm partial to red velvet so I tend to get that one the most, however, you can't go wrong with their other flavors. Enjoy!

“Best cupcake ever!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I bake all the time and love a really nice home-made cake, but often do not find them while travelling. Billy's cakes taste like heaven - good coffee too.

“These are the cupcakes I compare all others to.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I made the 30 minute round trip walk in the pouring rain just to buy a chocolate-chocolate cupcake from Billy's before my flight home to the UK- I think this says it all. I normally avoid cupcakes, but the frosting is so creamy, and the cupcakes are just sweet enough without having a sugar overload! If only it wasn't a whole plane ride away!
