    I always go for the flourless chocolate cake ($3.50 a piece) and the red velvet cupcakes. This place is found at the lower level of Grand Central station. Try to drop by while waiting for your MetroNo

    This worths for many! Skip the whole thing and go for banana pudding and red velvet.. If you're waiting for a long line make sure they still have the pudding in there!

    Loved that it was in the grand central terminal. Didn't have a chance to try the famous banana pudding but their cream cheese brownie was very good.

    On the lower level at Grand Central Station, go here instead and skip the lines at the famous West Village location. Watch as the expert bakers ice the many flavors of cupcakes right before your eyes.

    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.

    Try the only at Grand Central marble cupcake, with a beautiful edible chocolate disc on top and marble cake on the bottom. A very classy cupcake.

    Delicious goods. Staff is too slow for my liking. Efficiency is definitely an issue here. They also messed up my cake order. I was VERY dissatisfied with that.

    Get the Grand Central Cupcake... then go upstairs, look at the ceiling, and see where their inspiration for the topping comes from :)

    Zarkana Cupcake is surprisingly good. The Red Velvet is not that great (Crumbs and Bake My Cake do it better), but still a really good variety

    7(seven!) associates behind the counter take 10(ten) minutes to serve 2(two) customers, just coffee and pastry each. When I open my bag on the train, it's not what I ordered. Ughhhh.

    The banana pudding has a very Americanish taste. More educated palates will find it just acceptable.

    Maybe I came here with too much expectation. I ordered the iconic red velvet cake, and was absolutely without flavor. The espresso was bad.There are better places in ny. I'm definitely not coming back

    I was disappointed with the cupcakes, after all the hype. The cake is too floury and the icing isn't much better... I can honestly say I've baked better from scratch, not being humble or anything...
