    Okay. You wanna know how heaven tastes like? Then try their red velvet cheesecake. Out of this world! The key lime cheesecake (pictured) was delicious too! Would go back, preferably every day.

    Magnolia is my favorite bakery and this is my favorite magnolia. Banana pudding is the ultimate dessert. The buttercream frosting on the cupcakes is perfect. AND the people who work here are so sweet.

    The overly-sweet buttercream literally makes my teeth ache... but the banana pudding lives up to the hype: creamy w an almost whipped texture. Get a large--you'll be happy you have some to take home!

    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

    Banana pudding is a MUST try here,at least sample it,when it comes to cakes/cupcakes their icing is tasty but wouldn't say the same about the loaf they bake it with,brownies,bars, and cookies are good

    Friendly staff, if they can see you behind the tall displays. Take a mini cheesecake, fruit crisp, or cupcake in a box to sneak into a movie. Open late, and they don't run out of a lot by closing.

    One of The most traditional bakeries in NY, go to try at least something.... Can be the famous cupcakes, but all cakes are great as well

    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.

    I consider this home. The UWS store staff is super friendly, patient and helpful. Try an assortment of flavors. My personal faves: chocolate-chocolate cupcake and full chocolate (big piece of) cake

    Cinnamon sugar muffins are to die for (sometimes after 5pm they give them away for free!!) and the vanilla bean cheesecake is so rich and creamy - hands down the best bakery in NYC!!!

    Forget red velvet or chocolate ..Marble cupcakes it's a must ... I usually don't eat the frosting but when I go here I have to stop myself from licking the paper

    Get lemon square, it's very good here. And sometimes if you're lucky, there is just one slice or two of cake left, they give it to you for free!!! Yummy!

    One of the stronger outposts of the bakery chainlet. Beyond the cupcakes, do not miss the icebox cake and the banana bread pudding.

    Don't skip anything, get everything. Especially the banana pudding, cakes, cupcakes, pie, and hot chocolate. Oh and don't forget the cookies and dessert bars.

    Most tourists go for the cupcakes here but any true New Yorker goes directly for the banana pudding - you won't be sorry!

    This is the little bakery that started it all. Magnolia secret: their banana pudding can start another trend. It's too good to not try!

    The best cupcakes other than my Mom's & the cinnamon sugar muffins are awesome. Note: they don't make them on Tues or Thurs~

    Some of the best, cheapest coffee an iced coffee on the UWS. And the muffins trump the cupcakes, hands down.

    Sex and the City made Magnolia Cupcakes famous in the West Village, but loyal shoppers stop by the confectionary for a decadent treat at the uptown outpost.

    Banana pudding is awesome. As for service, the cashiers are very slow, and for some reason they allow customers to order items at the register which slows down the line.

    Carrot cake is the must have. German chocolate cake and the cake with coconut frosting are good buys

    We tried magnolia's ice cream sandwich for the first time and they were ok. Would choose anything else next time.

    The cupcakes can be on the dry side if you don't get them super fresh. Go for the banana pudding instead

    This location has plenty of seats while other magnolias are more like to-go only shops.

    The cupcakes themselves are typically a little dry, but the lighter than air buttercream frosting always makes them worth it.

    The sugar cookies are to die for. The cheese cake is awesome. Don't just get cupcakes. Try something new. Because almost everything there is the best!

    The devil's food is amazing! Red velvet was okay too, but would have been better with cream cheese frosting instead of buttercream.

    This is one of the least "touristy" Magnolias in the city. Just as good and the staff is really nice.

    Red Velvet Cheesecake with a cookie crust was amazing and the cupcake was alright. However, the girl behind the counter was rude and rushing me to order even though there wasn't anyone else in the sho

    Their cupcakes are so delicious, I would climb inside of a dumpster to eat one. And did. Yesterday morning.

    The banana pudding is the best thing here, the cupcakes can be dry and have WAY too much frosting that is overly sweet.
