Mix and match flavors! We bought a 6 pack: one of each blueberry, red velvet, cookie dough, mint cookie, triple chocolate fudge, and cinnamon bun. Yummy!

Bit size cupcakes, muffins and macarons! Skipped dessert after dinner and while heading back I had this craving for something sweet. Purchased a six pack (mix of cupcakes / muffins of my choosing) and enjoyed one while saving the rest for later. Perfect!

we were just passing by The shop and decided to stop in. What a neat concept to have all these little muffins by the various delicious flavors. Which is a selection of 25 assorted muffins which awaited us the following morning for breakfast. Everyone was very pleased by the assortment and enjoyed every flavor of muffin that we picked out.

These mini cupcakes are tiny but full of flavor. I loved the cookie dough flavor the most. The mini macarons are good too. They are all so tiny of you can try a few different flavors.

Awesome place to grab some tiny treats and they have great gluten-free options as well. My wife doesn't get excited by food very often but this is one place she fell in love with on our trip. Not ALL of their cupcakes are amazing. But since they're so small, you can get a large selection, pick your favorites, and then... More

These are tiny and cute cupcakes but taste pretty bland. I was not impressed. I got the triple chocolate fudge, chocolate velvet, and peanut butter chocolate. They all tasted the same. The peanut butter was of poor quality.

First of all, the product is not worth the hype or the price. There are a hundred other cupcakeries in Manhattan that produce far better product at a more favorable price. Also, their customer service is horrible. If you discover that they didn't fulfill your order correctly, they blame you for not checking it or for not knowing their products.... More

These tiny little delights are super delicious and moist! There are a few locations around the city and are the perfect little treat when you are craving something sweet.

I remain baffled as to why people love this place so much. Why not choose a smaller bakery to patronize? I get it, the owner started in NYC, and they have "crazy" fillings, but now it's a chain in the city and all I see is food coloring and the sheen of vegetable oil. I wound up with a tray... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
