    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!

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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!

    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

    No cupcake, not even Magnolia's, can live up to the Magnolia Bakery cupcake hype. In fact, skip the cupcakes and try one (or more) of their many other concoctions. The flourless chocolate cake and ban

    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

    This retro bakery looks and tastes like a grandmother’s kitchen–sweet, traditional, and full of love. We especially dig the seasonal treats available for holidays like Christmas and Easter. 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.

    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!
  • dawn.in.newyork
    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.

    I have been here a few times. I am sorry...these cupcakes are very dry and I have to drink something immediately after eating from there. I am tired of giving this place a try.

    I liked the cupcake presentation and the taste of the cake itself. I didn't like the cream all those random items and stuff hanging inside made the bakery look sloppy and cramped :(

    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!

    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!

    The best cakes, cupcake, and muffins, in town! Also ask for a piece of carrot cake and a glass of cold whole Milk...

    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.

    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...

    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

    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...

    This is the only bakery with a bouncer! For a quicker visit avoid the lines on the weekend and after work on weekdays! Those on diets avoid this place all together!
  • Thomas K.
    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.

    Cute little patisserie, very well known and for a good reason. Definitely try the red velvet cupcake, it's a classic!

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

    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.

    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!

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

    Famous cupcakes but having lived down the street for a few years I've witnessed them being closed for rat problems a few times. So take that for what it's worth...

    I don't know if they were having an off day, but I would go so far to say the red velvet cupcake I queued for was dreadful. Over-hyped and underwhelming.

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

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

    It's cupcakes are kind of overrated but they make a MEAN banana pudding. It's fluffy and has chunks of banana and cake in it. Bliss.

    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.

    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 are completely overrated. Had some in 2008, and had one now, and I felt the same both times.. They were good, but nothing special.

    This is a "must" - awesome moist and the "best" frostings on these amazing and varied cupcakes flavors. Priced very reasonably.

    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.
