    Cupcakes are the main event at this Carmine Street dessert and wine bar, but they also satisfy lushes with a Frozen Wine Slushy ($12) or "Vino Granitas," as they call them. Read more

    LOVE THIS PLACE. Amazing cupcakes with terrific pairings - great place to start or finish a date or a girls night out. Very friendly and polite staff, beautiful restroom as well!

    Close to perfection Red Velvet Waffles (and salted caramel syrup!) And great breakfast burrito bowl! Thumbs up for a great, not too heavy brunch!

    This cozy spot in the West Village serves some of the best cupcakes in the city as well as great food. Try the Jardin burger, Mahalo Chicken, and their chocolate chip cookie.

    Cupcakes are to be carefully unwrapped before indulging in their deliciousness and paired with an alcoholic beverage. There are also happy hour special so you can't go wrong!

    Love how the menu pairs your sweets with cocktails or wine. Great variety of cookies, brownies, cupcakes, etc. Soy milk latte was very weak and milky. Go for wine instead!

    So not big into cupcakes... But these were really good! The pairings were spot on! Black Velvet cupcake w/ Cherries and a Port Wine... Perfect!

    The Dirty & Bubbles cupcakes are super tasty as long as you're into sweet and sugary! Pear cider is also crisp and refreshing. Will definitely be back!

    The crimson and cream cupcake is delicious especially for a red velvet lover. The cocktail was not necessary- too sweet for me. The dirty is super rich, but the best part is the service.

    Red-velvet Belgian waffles served with raspberry and caramel dipping sauces and a dollop of cinnamon cream cheese. To die for. Read more

    The sweet revenge flavour they have is the best one. Very moist and a must for peanut butter and chocolate lovers. The chocolate one was more dry but still good.

    Awesome place for a casual date. The red velvet is amazing but my favorite is the peanut butter Sweet Revenge. Trust the staff when it comes to beer/wine pairings!

    Happy hour. Sweet revenge cupcake is a peanut sugary gorgeous nonsense that works somehow with a Melbac. The whole thing shouldn't work, but now I'm drunk with diabetes and happy.

    Huge selection of cakes and wines and beers. Don't make the same mistake we did and go for the mulled wine as its not that great and very expensive. Stick to the menu as they know what they're doing!

    Dirty + Pear Cider is awesome! Cider was sweet but not too heavy, rather crisp and light. A nice contrast to the rich and decadent chocolate on chacolate.

    Dirty cupcake is the best in the city if you don't like too sweet of a dessert. Dark chocolate and fluffy cake, delicious!

    Cupcakes and alcohol? Unusual yet proving to be the perfect pairing. A cozy place to come after a date – we recommend the Sweet Revenge cupcake.

    Cupcakes, beer and wine - what more could a girl ask for? Our favorite pairing? The Crimson & Cream Cupcake + Raspberry Bellini. Heaven…

    Peanut butter lovers should make a beeline for the Sweet Revenge (peanut butter frosting with chocolate filling inside). Crimson and Cream offers a raspberry twist on red velvet.

    Sweet concept! Paired cupcakes with beer or wine? They make great cupcakes but the two pairings combinations are brilliant! — Hannah Y., Designer

    For sandwiches, my favorite is the bacho and verde and for cupcakes either the dirty or the fleur de sel.

    Grab a seat in the window. And make sure you really, really like rosemary if you order the egg sandwich. Really.

    Fancified cupcakes, though if you ask me, I'd rather eat two cupcakes than have one with some wine.
