    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

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