  • Time Out Chicago

    The dense cake and achingly sweet frosting evoke nostalgia for kiddie birthday parties, but the cutesy lace curtains and not-too-sweet icebox cake are timeless. Read more

    It's easy to see how the sweets here became a New York—and now international—addiction: It'd be healthier to mainline sugar than to eat one of these cupcakes. Read more

    Skip the cupcakes - go for the banana pudding!

    The ultra-creamy texture of the banana pudding is interrupted with small chunks of banana and, best of all, Nilla Wafers that turn to tender cake after bathing in the pudding for a day or two.

    The banana pudding and peanut-butter & jelly cupcakes are to die for. Love the NYC, London, & Dubai locations also!

    You would think after opening several stores they'd know what they're doing. The order & check-out is confusing. It's bizarre they don't have enough treats during peak times. Hoping it gets better.

    They really need to rethink they're check out line

    I can pass on the cupcakes but banana pudding is AWESOME!!!! I always make a stop when I'm visiting Chicago or NYC.

    Go to Sprinkles or, better yet, Molly's instead. Employees are either really nice or flat out rude. They wouldn't take my preorder for a "mix of 18 cupcakes." Expensive for an average cupcake.

    No better no worse than cupcakes from a truck.

    I recommend the S'mores cupcake; the frosting is made from roasted marshmallows, and there is a surprise chocolate center.

    Cute place but the order and check out process still needs work. Of the three drinks we ordered, we had to send one back (not what we ordered), and they forgot to make another.

    I love meringue cookies in general but Magnolia's meringue icing has strong fishy smell and unpleasant raw egg taste. Maybe I had too much expectation because of their reputation.

    My cupcake was really good! (Caramel) and the friend i was with told me he preferred his to the one he took at Molly's cupcakes!

    The cupcakes are mostly terrible but the Snickers Pie & banana pudding are hands down winners!

    Had a white chocolate macadamia cake. It was only ok, not the freshest. No queue when I was here.

    I love the friendly atmosphere of the place but as a baker and pastry chef myself I prefer my own goodies

    Many members of the staff can be incredibly rude. Don't come here to overpay for a mediocre cupcake and snide service.

    Amazing !!! Try the caramel cupcakes!! Yum

    Meagan A. · October 10, 2013

    It's good. It's a little bit over priced and you think you're getting a huge cupcake for what you pay but you're getting only a regular size cupcake if not a little bit smaller.

    Kyle O. · October 1, 2013
  • Anamaria H.

    Wait for the girl to put out samples. Then order a cupcake. The lemon one has a whipped frosting and has a bit of lemon custard stuffed inside it. Highly recommend!
