    Was looking for a place to please the nephews, and not just they enjoyed the cupcakes , but I loved them as well. Get the hummingbird which is banana, I've read that red velvet is the best.

    Banana pudding is the best

    Jeanie Jang · October 13, 2014

    Their banana pudding is probably the most banana-y pudding there is in the city and I tried many if not all.

    Everything is beyond divine here! A must visit when in NYC for me!

    Best red velvet cake in NYC. The banana pudding also rivals Magnolia and Sugar Sweet Sunshine

    Melanie W. · August 30, 2014
  • Tash C.

    The Buttercup Golden and Red Velvet cupcakes are excellent. And the Buttercup's Famous Banana Pudding is a must try.

    Tash Concepcion · August 17, 2014
  • Andrew C.

    Banana pudding is the bomb. Better than Magnolia Bakery's! *gasp*

    We cannot stop eating the best banana pudding ever to be made! The rich and thick pudding mixed with fresh banana bites and crushed vanilla wafers gives that creamy yet crunchy cookie feel all in one.

    Red velvet. Never gets old.

    The banana pudding is amazing... gives Magnolia's a run for its money.

    Mary · May 12, 2013

    Cupcakes, cheesecakes, brownies.. Nothing vegan though

    The cake is mediocre but the buttercream frosting is the best frosting I've ever had. Seriously.

    Jany Xu · March 10, 2013
  • Rumana S.

    Not that I needed confirmation but just reaffirmed that their red velvet really is the best in town

    Best red velvet cupcake ever

    Jenn Stivers · February 2, 2013
  • ✨Pun B.

    Way too much icing for my taste. Cupcakes are fluffy, but I prefer mine moister and denser. Of course, sugar is sugar. U can't really complain, favors are nice and intense. Service is friendly.

    The strawberry rhubarb pie is sooooo good! It's the kind of pie that makes my day sweeter and better.

    Get the banana pudding and some red velvet cupcakes. Eat it all in one sitting, rinse, repeat.

    The best Red Velvet in New York City

    Skip the cupcakes and try the peanut butter cheesecake, which is about as dense and sweet a foodstuff as you can find anywhere.

    David Berkowitz · October 17, 2011

    Banana pudding. Yum!

    Sarah Browne · October 7, 2011

    The raspberry marzipan cheesecake was super tasty.

    Carl Anhalt · September 17, 2011
  • Becky B.

    I think this one is better than Magnolia Bakery at Rockefeller Center. Just my personal fav. Get a slice of cake- the hummingbird is out of this world.

    Becky Blossom · August 17, 2011
  • Angela D.

    Get the Hummingbird cupcake. It's is so delish!

  • Townley Girl

    When we need a sweet fix, we head to Buttercup Bakery. Soft, moist cakes tooped with sweet, fluffy frosting. While we stick with the delicious Red Velvet cupcake, sometime we go with the classic Vanil

    My favorite cupcakes in the city ... Can't go wrong with the original vanilla on vanilla or red velvet. The banana pudding is to die for also!

    Red velvet and the lemon cupcakes are amazzzzzzing but you can't go wrong with the classic vanilla cake and chocolate icing cupcake.
