    The cookies are incredible and perfectly chewy. Ginger spice cookies are my favorite but they're all amazing!

    Half pound cookies are hands down amazing. The sugar/snickerdoodle is soft and chewy in the middle. The Nutella white chocolate cookie might be the best cookie I've ever had.

    Tiny little bakery that's easy to miss but hard to forget. Their cookies are half a pound each (ie. size of my face) and so satisfying. The macademian chip Nutella-filled one is amazing.

    These cookies will change your life. Classic chocolate chip cookie is divine. Triple chocolate spice is to be avoided, but oatmeal raisin is surprisingly delish.

    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!

    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.

    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.”

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

    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
