Visited on a Wednesday evening after having dinner in the area with our 3 kids. The place was still pretty busy 15 minutes before closing time (8:45pm) and our kids loved their treats - a cookie, a cupcake and a chocolate covered marshmallow. Unfortunately the young lady behind the counter did not seem too happy to have customers at that time and her poor attitude made the experience less than sweet for the adults.

Great breads and cakes. Tried the pies as well that weren't as good but not disappointing either. Great interior for kids.

Their speciality is cupcakes, but Sweet Mandy B's has incredible pies and other delicious treats as well. In terms of their sweets, it's a 5. The pies, particularly the fruit pies, are fantastic. Not overly sweet, simply delicious. (Haven't tried the cupcakes as I'm not a cupcake fan.) The reason for the 3 is the atmosphere. It's more of a carry-out place than a relaxing place to go to enjoy pie and coffee. You can eat there, but it's more like eating in a lunchroom with rickety tables, loud music. So a great place to get dessert, just take it home with you.

Cakes and cupcakes set the standard here. No better place in Lincoln Park when you want to take a show-stopping dessert. The peanut butter frosting is amazing--even for those who don't love peanut butter. I was never a fan of angel food cake...UNTIL I tried SMB's. It will spoil you for any other version. Nothing's inexpensive, but everything is delicious. Mud cups a big hit with the under-10 crowd!

Wow -- we wandered into this bakery while exploring Lincoln Park, and it was very difficult to decide what treat to eat, between the many delicious-looking cookies, slices of cake, cupcakes, etc. We settled on cookies--an iced mollasses cookie and an M&M cookie. Both were packaged with care by the staff so we could enjoy later...and enjoy we did! Both cookies were delicious and very flavorful. Yum! Will plan on returning to try more treats!
