    ordered the strawberry fields cake for my daughters christening. It was a hit! The buttercream is exactly how it should be: light and buttery. The cake was soft and moist. My go-to for cakes now!

    Sexy desserts for those who like to keep it luscious! If you like cake, you will love this place, you can smell the butter when you walk in. Gets a modern courtesan thumbs up and then some. Nosh on! Read more

    cupcakes are a bit sweet for my liking, but their snack cakes are spot on. Definitely recommend their lemon snack cake (others call them twinkies). They make customize fondant cake too. $2.95/cupcake

    The black/white and red/white cookies of all sizes are the best thing on the menu!! The mini-cakes are also worth a spin--lemon and red velvet in particular!

    The people who work at Empire are fun/pleasant to deal with before you've had your coffee—rare to find in NYC. And the tip jars question makes me laugh every time. Also Stumptown coffee a major plus.

    Small black and white cookie. Excellent! I have never liked the B&W before but love it. The guy who assisted me was really sweet (no pun here) and that's why I bought anything at all.

    The freshest and richest cupcakes!! Worth every penny, the service is always friendly and welcoming, and the fact that they're open late can't hurt either! Don't miss!

    Make sure to try the red velvet twinkie (not its official name) and the home made twix bar (the workers suggested that one). Both are extremely delicious.

    Wonderful passion fruit Twinkies. One of the few times when I can endorse something made with white chocolate. The cake in this is just superb.

    Try the almond flour cookies- mouthwatering! And the red and white and black and white minis are perfection in a bite. Yum!

    Try the Apple Streusel Muffin. Delicious in the way of coffee cake, with just the right balance of crumbly, buttery streusel and tender-crumbed muffin. Read more

    Get any of their twinkies. Get anything red velvet! Hence the best option is their red velvet Twinkie :).

    You're going to want one of the swiss rolls, but it turns out Yodels made by professional bakers taste like Yodels. If you want your mind blown, try the pecan bars instead.

    They are right, the red velvet twinkie/snack its amazing. I also had a dulce de leche cupcake...it was ok, nothing spectacular. Go for the twinkies.

    Get the chocolate covered homemade twinkie and the iced coffee. Out of this world, and the employees are a delight.
