    There is no comparison to the delectably moist crumble and the super-sweet just-crusted frosting that tops every treat. Not to mention each one is perfectly small enough to tempt a 2nd or 3rd taste. Read more

    The banana cake and pudding is delicious. Overall their cakes are really good. There are seats inside the bakery as well which is good to hang out. There are also two benches outside for the summer.

    Try the pecan pie at this charming 1940s style bakery. It contains a full-bodied brown sugar-bourbon custard and loads of toasted pecans that form a crackly, caramelized top layer. Read more

    Adorable pastel color interior theme, chocolate chip and snicker doodle cookies are great and only 2 for $2. Buttercream frosting used on their cake and cupcakes is superb.

    Recommend: red velvet cake is very solid with good frosting, and key lime pie is less sweet with a nice zing.

    A great combination of moist cake and not too sweet icing. Really delicious cupcakes - especially my favorite - vanilla cake with chocolate icing. I want more.

    I ordered a custom tiered banana cake with cream cheese frosting for birthday party and it was delicious!!! Staff are also very friendly and helpful.

    Good cupcakes, but cloyingly sweet. You're probably going to need a black coffee. Only get one cupcake. No possible way you're going to need more than that. You can even share with 2 or 3 people.

    Order a piece of cake (banana!) and share it with a friend because the slices are HUGE. Icebox cake is ridiculous good. My favorite cupcakes are banana and carrot.

    If you like banana bread, I can see why you might like the banana cupcake, but I prefer and recommend the red velvet and the carrot cake.

    Get the carrot-cake cupcake with cream cheese frosting. I usually go for more 'traditional' cupcakes. And get the red velvet.

    Good for cupcakes and sweet treats. Cupcakes are small for $3.50 but the frosting is high quality.

    Cookies were a little dough but the Red Velvet Cupcake was decent. The cream cheese frosting is great.

    Picked up a double chocolate cupcake, did we? Let me let you in to a little secret...meh. Put that baby down and head over TMS for an ice cream sammie. Sure, it's more cals, but if you run there...

    You can always judge a bakery by southern standards...a red velvet cupcake, glazed donut and cheese straw...let me know how they measure up!

    Cupcakes are okay. Magnolia is better. The best cupcakes I've ever had though is at 350 Classic Bakeshop in Rye, NY. An upstart that kicks this bakery's ass!

    Rachel Zoe must have had one of these banana cupcakes before she coined her signature phrase. Don't forget to take home their new baking mixes—you never know when the cravings will hit.

    Went with the red velvet cupcake after reading some tips. Excellent choice. Would also recommend the Banana Nutella.

    Join sweet-toothed locals of all ages. Unlike cupcake competitor Magnolia Bakery, Billy’s is friendly and welcoming, not bossy and strict. Read more

    The Carrot Cake was probably the best carrot cake ever! And definitely spend the extra money for their adorable to-go container. It's awesome!

    Got the Ice Box cake for a friend's bday and it's SO YUMMY! You can't go wrong with layers of chocolate and whipped cream. Imagine an ice cream sandwich in cake form - that's the Ice Box cake!

    Red Velvet cupcakes are perfect. "Ice Box" cake is a lethal no-no unless you bring your toothbrush to scrub all the sugar off of your teeth.

    Had the hazelnut cheesecake, didnt have much flavor to it. More of a lite chocolate taste. Pumpkin cheesecake was the bomb!

    The banana cream pie from Billy's is now possibly my favorite dessert in the entire world.
    Banana Cake or Cupcake is divine. Carrot cupcake is a close second.

    The chocolate chip cake with buttercream frosting will make you want to dive head first into the cake, insanely rich and so good.

    If you go to Magnolia over Billy's just because of Sex and The City, slap yourself in the FACE, and never eat another cupcake. You are banned. Billy's has it COVERED. Awesome. Carrot cupcakes amaze.

    Everyone knows the cupcakes are good, so I'll recommend the lemonade. Perfect blend of sweet and tart!

    Go within an hour of closing and ask for a slice of whatever it looks like they have to most left of. You will leave with 1/4 of a cake as your 'slice'

    The Peanut Butter Pie is quite possibly my favorite, but you can't go wrong with a red velvet or a yellow daisy cupcake. Hands down my favorite bakery.

    Everything at Billy’s Bakery in Chelsea is good but grab a slice of Banana Cream Pie, you won’t regret it.
