    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!

    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!

    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

    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

    This bakery is the place where red velvet cupcakes were born! Depending on season, also try harvest apple and banana ones. Be prepared to put on the most delicious kilos :D

    Best Bakery in NYC. Come here as often as possible! Unbelievable cupcakes, best ever blondies, and the most decadent homemade banana pudding! My favorite place on earth!

    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!

    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...
  • 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.

    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!

    How could we have a dessert post without including the infamous Magnolia Bakery? Known for their cupcakes, most notably their red velvet flavor, Magnolia's is a West Village legend. Read more

    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!

    Totally loved the lemon bar ice cream sandwich. Banana pudding was not too impressive, but perfect to share with someone. Would come back again

    Since Miranda and Carrie from Sex and the City sat outside the bakery eating cupcakes at the original location on Bleeker Street the iconic neighborhood bakery has never been the same. Find out more: Read more

    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.

    Try the red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Delicious! Actually, you can't really go wrong with any of their cupcakes.

    I must be the only person to receive an extremely dry and disappointing red velvet cupcake here (based on other tips). every other flavor I've tried was great though - a nice stop for tourists!

    Banana pudding is awesome lol but.. I recommend it's better to choose small one! If you don't like eating dessert, it is too sweet!

    Cupcakes are alright. Chocolate cake w/ vanilla icing and banana pudding are amazing. Get a glass of milk to go with the bliss.

    I visit and indulge every time I visit NYC. They are Kosher too. It really is a dessert work of art when you are in there.

    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.

    Sex and the City may have made the cupcake spot famous, but the confections speak for themselves; they’re divine.

    Any New Yorker knows you don't go to Magnolia's for the cupcakes. Dry sponge, hard icing. But the banana pudding... People would kill for that straight up crack.

    Say no to the cupcakes; the frosting is just too much. Get the banana pudding instead! You won't regret it...

    Get the banana pudding. The cupcakes are overrated, especially the Red Velvet. The banana pudding is massively underrated.

    When you get here, grab a box or a bag. Place your cupcakes and then pay. Easy for everyone because this place will be busy.

    The classic stop from all the movies. I love coming here, but am still more a fan of their frosting than the cup cake base.

    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!
