We took away cup cakes from this place and they were delicious. The chocolate cup cake with a gooey centre was the best. Look forward to trying more of their flavours.

Two Little Red Hens have some of my favorite cupcakes in the city. I especially love their lighter cupcakes made with chiffon cake and filled with delicious pudding. Their regular cupcakes are good too. Shop is cute and quaint but there isn't much room to sit and stay. These cupcakes (and other desserts) are best for carry out. They also... More

Excellent "American" bakery. Very limited seating so best for taking out classic birthday cakes and terrific cupcakes. Holiday pies and fruit pies in season.

Their cakes are works of art while also a little bit of heaven in your mouth! Try the mini cupcakes to sample a little bit of everything but don't pass on their banana bread, seasonal muffins, cookies and pies.

Meaning loads of cream and sugar. Don't expect anything fancy or subtle. Or imaginative. This is not French pastry or Austrian pastry.... More

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.
