This is one of those bakeries you will return to time and time again. Certain items are just among the best in the city. Anything chocolate black out and the peanut butter and chocolate peanut butter cupcakes. The plain cheese cake is wonderful as well.

We came to this amazing little place because of the recommendation here. this place have a wonderful staff and amazing coffee, cakes and cupcakes. we had to wait for 5 minutes for a special cupcake, and the manager at the place didn't want to take money because we waited. Amazing place!

Great southern country style desserts. A great treat in a city that often is overrun with european style dessert shops. It's hard to find this style. I would go more often if it wasn't so sinfully good. I would be 1000 pounds!

Tiny bakery focused in pies, cup cakes and cakes. Sunday evening 20 minutes on the line to order. Seating for 10 people that makes take away the preferred way. If you aren't in hurry worth the waiting.

ㅎㅎ 세개먹었어용 맛있어...!! 당근, 피넛버터퍼지, 초코퍼지 미니 세개 먹었고 필링과 베이스 머핀 모두 맛있었어요. 무엇보다 머핀이... 퍽퍽하지도 시럽에 적신 것도 아닌데 정말 촉촉했고, 필링도 정말 진하면서 부드러웠어요. 가장 기본인데 그게 진짜 충실해서 맛있는 느낌? 막 달지도 않구요. 저는 피넛버터를 딱히 좋아하는건 아닌데 피넛버터퍼지가 가장 맛있었네요! 담번에는 레드벨벳 먹어보고싶어요ㅠㅠㅠ I had three cakes once -a carrot, a peanut butter and a... More

Probably my favorite dessert spot in the city. I'd recommend the Boston Cream cupcake, but unfortunately it only comes out late afternoon. Their Key Lime pie and cupcake are both absolutely amazing when they have them.

I've never had a coconut cupcake taste like an exquisite little coconut cream pie before. Whipped cream coconut frosting was amazing and the cake portion was light as a feather. Delicious!

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
