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

The prices are fair, my wife and I got 6 items and the total came out to around $23 USD after tax. Very fair for such a highly rated and recommended place in such a part of town. Everything I didn't have looked great, what I got was scrumptious. Highly recommended! Service: 4/5 Location: 4/5 Quality: 5/5 Value: 4/5

Sweet Mandy B's is a bakery in Lincoln Park that some people would call a "must visit". I am not one of those people. This bakery has a large selection of delicious treats, but most of the items are far from anything to rave about. Don't get me wrong, if you have a sweet tooth then you will be satisfied,... More

Sweet Mandy B's is one of those very special bakeries that is simply outstanding. Everything they make is top notch delicious. I visit every time I'm in town, and I'm never disappointed. Their frostings and fillings are particularly delicious. If you have a sweet tooth, you must stop by. I don't have favorites - I can close my eyes and... More

Our friends took us there after dinner for dessert. Even close to closing, they had a wide array of items to choose from. We got a double doosie, peanut butter cupcake, molasses cookie, chocolate mint cookie and a cherry scone. Cupcake was moist and had just the right amount of frosting +3 Double doosie chocolate chip cookies were good but... More
