    Delicious cupcakes! This small but busy bakery sells cupcakes, small cakes, and assorted pies and other baked goods. They also do larger cakes and custom orders. Small seating area. Good service. Prices are pretty reasonable for a New York bakery; two large cupcakes cost less than $9.

    I went in one day to place an order for a birthday cake. I was told they do not take preorders, but they are always making the cake that I wanted, and to call the next week so that they can write the message on it before I pick it up. I called early in the morning to be informed that they are out of the cakes, and that they would not be making any more. It is possible that they may make more the following day, but I could not put an order in for one.

    Really good small (4") cakes available in the stores if you're only celebrating with less than 3 people! I got the Brooklyn Blackout and it is so creamy and moist, it had a sort of fluffy feel to it! I believe the prices were also pretty cheap. The cupcakes were good but definitely not as yummy as the cakes.

    I wanted to find the best cupcakes in Manhattan and I do believe this place is it! I went in and ordered a few of the mini cupcakes and was very satisfied! A little pricey but you get what you pay for-magic. I will be back! I have a big sweet tooth and this hit the spot. Very very rich!

    There is only 1 two little red hens, literally and figuratively! Ive had alot of cupcakes in my life, this place is the BEST. The cake is moist, but not too moist. The frosting is light and whipped and perfectly creamy without being too sweet. The Brooklyn Blackout is my fave: chocolate cake with chocolate pudding in the middle, fudge frosting. Eat it and prepare for the butterflies. The marble cupcake is so simple but divine. Anything from here is amazing. Inside feels like a country place, away from the bustle of the city.

    *Best cupcakes in NYC (Key Lime and Coconut Cream are especially YUM) and delicious fluffy cheesecake. *Always worth the long line (it moves fast). *Prices are very reasonable considering the quality. *The staff are beyond nice!

    Delicious bakery. The lines might be a little out of proportion to quality, but everything I've had is quite delicious. Cheesecake was pleasantly soft - a lot in NYC tend to be a little chunkier, and you can kind of feel them like a rock in your stomach. This one is a bit lighter!

    The best cheesecake in the world as long as you don’t have any questions or want anything else. If you happen to be there ten minutes to close then you will see that the meanest bouncer at any club in NYC ain’t got nothing on the girls that work at this super cute little bakery. They will throw you out in the sidewalk quicker than you can say pumpkin cheesecake.

    Best. Cupcakes. In. The. Universe. Unreal. Dream-haunting. Ruins you on all other cupcakes, which you can forget about anyway (except maybe Molly's Cupcakes). I want to swear, but one must not use profanity among the Cupcakes. Oh, and the service is good, except that they need a better system for boxing cupcakes. The cupcakes often end up smashed by the time you open the box at home. Also, the line can get really long. Expect a 20+ minute wait.

    Wow, their cupcakes are to die for. They’re dense, huge, and delicious. They also have the minis but we wanted the regular big size. Their first 2 batches doesn’t come out until 11 am. It’s their 2 most popular, Brooklyn Blackout and dark chocolate peanut butter. After 11 am, 1 flavor comes out at a time every 30 minutes, I believe. Wish they had better coffee though but guess no one goes there for that.
