    After you pay for everything, if it's nice outside, the best and closest place to enjoy your baked goods and beverages is Bleecker Street Park, which is caddy corner from Magnolia.

    Chocolate cupcakes were awesome. Classic vanilla also bloody good. They do ice creams and cheesecakes. Tiny shop, ran out of red velvet cupcakes when we got there about 2pm. Yummy.

    Anyone who visits NYC must take a detour to visit this bakery! Their cupcakes are amazing. My absolute favorite RED VELVET! Their banana pudding is also very tasty, to die for!
  • Jessica W.
    The bakery that Carrie and Miranda visit in Sex and the City, so always a popular spot. Great options for cakes and cheesecake, with a lovely little park opposite, perfect for enjoying your treat

    My kids think this place is heaven. Icing is a little sweet for my taste, but cupcakes, cakes & pies are all pretty damn good. Constant long lines, but move pretty quickly. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    They might be the reigning King of Desserts regardless of the season, but a holiday favorite is the sno-cap cupcake- devils food cake topped w/peaks of savory meringue icing dusted with coconut flakes

    Their cupcakes are even better than you've heard. I love them and I don't even like cupcakes (I make an exception for theirs)! Also try the mini-cheesecakes and the banana pudding is delectable!

    Bake 7.3: Famous cupcake place in NY. Only downside is that they often run out very quickly so the selection can be restricted because as soon as they come out of the oven they are pretty much sold. Read more

    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

    Their banana bread pudding is one of the great desserts in NYC. They have new varieties with chocolate chip and salted caramel, but the original is the winner.

    Yes, it's a hype fuelled by Sex and the City. But the cakes are delicious. Take one to eat outside in the mini park opposide the shop.
  • Harry A.
    Cute little patisserie, very well known and for a good reason. Definitely try the red velvet cupcake, it's a classic!

    We really wanted to get some cupcakes but they are self serve and some bratty rich kid kept licking her fingers and reaching in to help herself! They looked delicious though!
  • Victoria N.
    Red Velvet Cupcakes. You can't live in New York or visit New York without coming here. Delicious and a tourist attraction. It's been in Sex and the City so obviously you have to go!
  • 3, 2016
    Definitely has become a popular tourist spot, but good thing is that cupcakes are so fresh since the waiting line is quite long, and cupcakes go out very quick.

    This specific location of Magnolia Bakery on Bleecker St is what started the cupcake craze in NY & then took over the rest of the country. The red velvet cupcake really does taste the best here...
  • Bloomingdale's
    Bloomingdale'sAugust 12, 2010
    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.

    The only cupcake worth getting is the vanilla cupcake with buttercream frosting. No one does those better than magnolia!

    The banana pudding is like no pudding you've ever had before. It is simply amazing. However I had a slice of caramel cake once and that was a mistake. It was very dry.

    Can we be honest for just a moment? An 8 year old can make better cupcakes using Betty Crocker mix. Stick to other desserts. The pecan pie is great and I hear the banana pudding is too.
