Although I've tried other bakery treats here, I have to say it's the cupcakes that keep bringing me back. I'm a huge chocolate fan, but their unique flavors (lemon, cookie monster, & snickerdoodle spring to mind) are so delicious, I forego traditional chocolate in favor of them! Our daughter's 3rd birthday included a full sized cake in the shape of... More

Coming from Canada we are always on the hunt for a good snicker doodle cookie (very hard to find in Canada). We found Mandy B's and were not let down. Located in a quaint neighbourhood Mandy's was quite busy for a Sunday morning when we stopped in to pick up our order. In addition to our cookies, which were phenomenal,... More

Mmm so many choices from caramel apples to pies, cakes and cupcakes. It took me a while to decide on a slice of vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. Simply good. The buttercream was so creamy, and it was one of the best buttercream frostings I've had. I can't wait to visit again and try some of the other desserts.

Stopped by during a girls trip to Chicago. It was well worth the drive north. Enjoyed the cupcakes, pie and cookies. Officially my favorite cake in Chicago!

I know people love Sprinkles — but I must say I prefer Mandy B's. We've only had their chocolate and vanilla cupcakes - but they are so moist — and the icing is some of the best buttercream icing I've ever had. Would love to try a pie sometime. This is the kind of place where everything is good. Sure... More

We stopped here on a whim after being downtown. We came in late and firgured that they would not have anyhting left. We were wrong. There were plenty of fresh goodies that were fersh and suberb. Really enjoyed the bars. Ordered birthday cake after that and we found the frosting to be salty for some reason and asked for a... More
