    Come earlier in the day for more options. Their 1/2 lbs cookies are awesome.

    The 1/2 lb cookies are no joke. Different from Levain, these are more like traditional cookies, but ginormous. Love the oatmeal and snickerdoodle. Also, buy 10, get 1 free!

    I just devoured their red velvet cookie, it's stuffed with melted heavenly cream cheese. A must try

    Red velvet with cream cheese cookie! Snicker doodle is really good too. $3.50 for a really big cookie! It's soft and chewy.

    You might as well go to a Wal-mart bakery, y'all, cause you'll get the same dry cake and greasy icing as this place, sadly. :(

    There's no denying that the cakes they make are gorgeous. But we tried a basic cookie and it didn't particularly impress compared to other spots.

    Unfortunately our Guest Crusader didn't have a good experience, but we believe in second chances!

    You can't see the place from across the street as it is in the lower level. Just walk close to the address and you can see it

    Food Bloggers John & Elana Iaciofane say, “City Cakes has hands down the best cakes. Noteworthy are the pumpkin spice and the Key lime, with flavorful icing that is substantial and not too sweet.”

    Try the Amaretto Cupcake with Sinful Buttercream Icing.

    Get the half-pound cookies. It takes two days to finish one!

    Cookies and cupcakes are stale and lack any sense of excitement. Go around the block to Lulu instead.

    It is a dangerously delicious place, as you may not want to go anywhere else for cupcakes again. The red velvet cupcakes are wonderful!

    City Cakes are whimsically designed, skillfully executed, and sinfully delicious desserts that rival works of art in beauty and creative flair. We're dreaming of cream cheese frosting...

    This is the most outstanding giant gooey chocolate cookie in the city. It should be called the giant molten chocolate blowout
