As someone who does not like anything banana flavoured I was shocked to find that the banana pudding is absolutely delicious! Highly recommend. The only reason I tried it is because I seen people talking about it on Tripsdvisor and i'm so glad I did. Perfect mix of creamy with sponge and banana. There are many locations and even one...

Came across this place while wandering and realizing it was featured in Sex and The City, decided we must try it. There were no other customers inside and at least 5 or 6 members of staff behind the counter. They were all talking amongst themselves and no one acknowledged us or offered to serve us. We eventually got someone's attention... More

Stopped in after dinner with the hubby for a quick dessert. Hadn't been to this location yet and wanted to give it a try. Walked in at 11:02 PM and this location closes at midnight. Asked for a piece of cake and a hot chocolate. The staff said there were no more drinks since the machines were turned off, and... More

Have wanted to come here for years after a friend recommended it so was excited to finally be in New York and to try the bakery. I was not disappointed. I had a chocolate blondie and a chocolate pudding pie and they were both delicious.

We were in New York for a girly weekend to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday and this place was on our list. The choice was endless. The Cheesecake was the best I've ever tasted. It was huge, so huge that it took 2 sittings to eat it all. My daughter had a slice a huge pink cake, but I can't... More

...I believe it is. The most amazing selection and mouth watering delights one could ever wish to see in one place. Delicious doesn't adequately describe this sweet experience. I guarantee you will delight your palette. The coffee was great too!

I walked looking for the this Bakery which was a must do for me in New York City. Totally enjoyed the walk and got through really quickly in the bakery itself, although there was a lot of people, the staff was very efficient. I had the banana budding and it was delightful.

I stopped at both Magnolia locations on my trip to NYC. This one is a little more old and quaint, fitting of the area. I always wanted to go to this location (big Sex and the City fan) . I read many reviews raving about the banana pudding, so in addition to my cupcake (chocolate with vanilla buttercream) I got... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
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 stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
