    It doesn't matter if Carey and Miranda like this place. The line is too long and the cupcakes are garbage. Try Molly's Cupcakes instead.

    Pistasicio cupcake was yummy. If you are not use to American sized portions, it was a normal sized cupcake that punched with flavour. If you have a sweet tooth your like this. Reminded me somewhat of Lola's cupcakes in the UK

    The banana pudding is absolutely amazing! Before my boyfriend and I went we read lots of reviews on how good it was. But seriously words don't do it justice! It's that good! Definitely one of the best desserts I've had in my life. So creamy and full of flavor! We had to go back multiple times before our trip was over.

    I really want to like this place, I do. But the over-buttered, over-sugared same old same old just isn't worth it. The banana pudding offers heart attack assurance. The icebox cake is my favorite. But ultimately it feels a bit like the McDonalds of cupcake houses, with kitchen Mitch instead of Golden Arches. Harrumph.

    This place has a good vibe and following due to being made famous in Sex and The City but I also felt that I had stepped into my childhood cake shops.Fantastic selection of cup cakes and array of wonderful sweets and the banana pudding is the best.Enjoy

    The cupcakes are really delicious and beautifully placed, but the place is really crowded. The service was really fast even though the place was full. If you are going just for the cakes that's the place, but if your intention is to have a cup of tea, to sit and enjoy your cake you better go somewhere else.

    Such a cool thing to have visited the 1st ever magnolia bakery in the world. Having been famous for being previewed on Sex & the City, the boutique is so small yet so cozy. Smells great and u cant help but dig into their delicacies...The cupcakes taste amazing!!! If ur around, do stop over and savor the sweetness!!!!

    When in New York, I just have to come and try the Magnolia Bakery cupcakes. I had cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery worldwide before, and it would only make sense that I also try one (or two) from the original store in New York. The selection of cupcakes are good. There are also cakes and other sweets that you can purchase if you are not a fan of cupcakes. This is a must to visit for all cupcakes lovers.

    I know they're known for cupcakes, but I found the cupcakes pretty mediocre. Typical overly-sweet cupcakes, seems to me. It is a cute little shop. Cakes look amazing (but I didn't try any). The regular banana pudding is really good. Get the large (you can always have leftovers if you don't eat it all).

    I heard a lot about their banana pudding and thought well... but to be honest everything I heard is true and much more. It is amazing, not too sweet, rich and creamy just heavanly !!!

    My daughter LOVES Cupcakes - see a sign for a bakery and we will always go in! Magnolia Bakery is filled with all sorts of goodies - Cupcakes, cookies, brownies, macaroon's, even hot and cold coffees - Hello Afternoon Latte! All the above stuff is GREAT - what isn't great is the service - UGH - the attitudes - only ONE person (my latte maker) was friendly. This is place that I'm sure mostly tourists go - not that that should be an issue..... I don't care if I'm getting a coffee, a yogurt, a cupcake....I ask nicely - try to be friendly and there is no eye contact, no 'your welcome', NO conversation - ugh - maybe Magnolia was having a bad day. If you see it, stop in - let me know if the service has improved or keep on walking and find a place where you don't care that the cupcake was overpriced because the staff gave it to you with a smile. Sugar ON!

    What's all the hype? Freakin expensive cupcakes, yeah yeah, this is NYC... Ok. Tried em. Hooked. This is my new go-to vice. Can't believe I'm paying this much for junk food, but... there are lots of worse things to be hooked on. As Homer Simpson would say "mmmmm.... Chocolate.... hhalahhhhh...."

    Bought three cupcakes and all three cakes cakes were dry, lacking moisture and flavour. The display of the cupcakes could be more appealing.

    Visited here as part of the SATC tour. Due to its links with the show I was looking forward to the visit. Cakes look delicious. I had the red velvet cheesecake which was beautiful. Very sickly and better to share. My mom had the carrot cake which was to die for. However my daughter had the vanilla cake, unfortunately this wasn't so good. Cake was really dry and the icing tasted funny. When you are spending $30 on cake you expect it to be perfect.

    What a lovely bakery! A lot of choice for every taste and also cold and hot drinks available. I have enjoyed a bar with chocolate and coconut...absolutely delicious! Also the vanilla cup-cake was good. I have drunk a cup oh of tea for only US$ 1,95. I appreciate that on Friday is open until midnight because we had the opportunity to buy something to take home for breakfast.  My best compliments to all the staff!

    Love, love, love their banana pudding. The banana cream pies are also pretty good. I've had better cupcakes but they're better than average.

    Very small shop that sell typical American cakes and cupcakes. I brought the cake back to the hotel, just to taste the cake everybody recommend. I finished all of it.... Wow! I will be back.

    Smooth and moist and delicious cupcakes with delicious icing. Perhaps not worth a trip on its own but if you're in the area well worth checking it out.

    I love to buy the odd cupcake here and pop over to the park opposite to eat it. Nice selection and definitely worth a visit!
