Can anyone say Red Velvet cupcakes???? Oh My God.... (Christopher loves them) When Al and I are in the city it's a definite stop. -Caroline Manzo, Real Housewives of NJ
Legendary cupcakes, absolutely get the Red Velvets! Well worth standing in line for this New York classic.
“Cupcakes are so 2002, kick it up a notch and splurge for the banana pudding!” – Renee, Setup Squad
The bakery that began the cupcake craze is still the best. We suspect it’s the lick-your-fingers-to-get-the-last-bit-of-butter-cream frostings and fillings. They do a mean banana pudding too.
Skip the cupcakes and get banana pudding instead.
The famous bakery made famous from Sex and the City. You can't go wrong with any dessert here but we love the bread pudding!
I hate the word "moist"
Sure, the cupcakes are classic, but the banana pudding is the real treat here.
Sorry "Sex and the City" fans: The cupcakes at this place are overrated. The banana pudding, however, is fabulous.
Cupcakes have never tasted this good.
Try the Cupcakes and spot it on Foodspotting!
After a little banana pudding (OMG! It has ‘nilla wafers in it!), go see where the magic began and visit the Juicy Couture Bleecker Street store!
The cupcakes here are known for their airy buttercream frosting (and cameo in Sex and the City).
The best Cup cake in NYC
i don't know what the big deal is here. everything is very average. customer service is horrible. the only good thing is the bananna pudding.
What is not to love about the famous Magnolia Bakery? Try anything and EVERYTHING-- especially the cupcakes! They make a great treat and a well appreciated gift! We love S'mores and red velvet cupcake
This is the original location. And just to reiterate what 90% of the tips already say...get the banana pudding w/ nilla wafers. Cupcakes are better elsewhere.
Try the Banana Pudding and spot it on Foodspotting!
Vanilla/Chocolate cupcake is the best. If they have Red Velvet though, it's a must!
Stand outside the air vent (on 11th, just west of Bleecker corner), which gives you that strong taste sensation, calorie-free. Warning: fuels cupcake-dreams in the wee hours of the morning...
Red velvet at midnight
Red velvets? Noob. Get the banana pudding.
I have had way better cupcakes but their banana pudding is the best thing you will eat!
German chocolate cupcakes!!! Blondies also rock. Really you can't go wrong.
Get the red velvet cake and eat it on a subway platform.
Fantastic banana pudding.
The icebox cake is delicious; skip the cupcakes.
The red velvet cupcakes are the sorriest excuse for red velvet EVER. They don't even taste like red velvet! This place is sooo overrated and a tourist staple.
The cupcakes don't merit the crap customer service.
The best banana pudding
The banana pudding is definitely the highlight. Forget the cupcakes.
I cannot stop dreaming about the vanilla cupcake with buttercream frosting I got here... Sooooo incredible!
Probably the best banana pudding in existence
Let's hit up Magnolia and mack on some cupcakes.
Banana pudding is the way to go!
The best hot cocoa I've ever did take. Try red velvet cupcake too, it's just amazing.
The must have moist red velvet cupcakes. It's heaven in your mouth mmmmmmm
This is a "must" - awesome moist and the "best" frostings on these amazing and varied cupcakes flavors. Priced very reasonably.
The red velvet cupcake has a wonderful tender crumb an huge flavor. The slightly sweet whipped cream icing I a wonderful compliment. A+
two words: banana pudding.
Très célèbre boulangerie dont la renommée des cupcakes n'est plus à faire. Elle peut être le point de départ d'une balade dans West Village et le Meatpacking, ancien quartier des abattoirs de la ville
