Maybe it's because I just returned from Paris. Maybe it's because I am of an age where I have tasted food for over six decades. Maybe it's because I have good taste. Maybe it's because I never follow the trends and simply trust my own...More

I visited on a chilly day and it was absolutely packed inside! I braced myself and waited in line and it was absolutely worth it! The cupcakes are delicious and the banana pudding was so yum! I took it back to the hotel to eat...More

Forget the cupcakes, you must try the Banana Pudding. On a recent trip had the chocolate mint version - amazing

I tried the red velvet cupcake. The flavor was very good, but the cake was over baked. It was hard, and dry. Expected more for $4.00.

Tried many, many dessert items on our NYC trip, and very glad we went here. If there is one item you need to try, it's the banana pudding - do not miss it!!

After all the hype, I expected more from the cupcakes here. They were nice but not amazing. Prices were slightly on the high side but they had a good selection of flavours.

I have read and heard about Magnolia bakery for a few years. I expected a lot and didn’t expect it to meet my expectations, however, it more than met them! We ordered a fudge brownie, lemon bar, peppermint chocolate banana pudding and a key lime...More

After getting off the train, we walked over to Magnolia's Bakery for breakfast, and had the Banana Pudding, the Hummingbird Cake, and the Lemon Bar, along with hot chocolates and a latte...all were delicious! Very fresh and extremely reasonably priced considering the portion.

We went to Radio City Music Hall to see the Rockettes Christmas show and then went straight to the Magnolia Bakery for dessert, even before we had dinner! The shop was crowded with lines out the door, but the line moved fast, and the cake...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Can't hurt to order it in advance. We did that for my dad's birthday and it was definitely worth it, since we wanted a specific flavor.
