    Pumpkin Spice Cupcake and the Black & White... might be the best cupcakes in all of NYC.

    Amazing cupcakes and all sorts of puddings that beat magnolia. Also the only bakery in NYC with reasonable prices! Been coming here for many years now

    Get the Hollaback Girl with banana bread. The Sexy Red Velvet was just ok.

    Mini cheesecakes, hot tea, cute seating area with outlets. The chocolate pudding is basically pudding with cake stirred up in it (not my thing) and vanilla cupcake was veryyy sweet!

    The banana pudding IS stupid good. Also, don't leave without a (or a bunch of) cupcakes!! My favorites: pistachio and "pinch me" (whipped peanut butter frosting on strawberry cake).

    Cupcakes are great but pudding is where it's at. Banana is a classic but the butterscotch with chocolate chip cookies is really the jam.

    These cupcakes are extremely light (weight-wise) and dry. This explains their low price point compared to Georgetown.

    Cupcakes are great (and CHEAP!) but if you're looking for something different, try their puddings. The banana beats Magnolia Bakery by a mile.
