We visited here around 20:00 today, product range fantastic. We came away with far more than we could actually eat and the food is amazing. But, the service was appalling. I do not expect to be yelled at for not queueing in a straight line or for the sighing and eye rolling because I didn't have my cash ready within... More

This bakery was a wonderful surprise! We stayed at the Omni just a short walk away and happened upon this bakery early in our trip, and I am so glad we did. A must try is the banana pudding! We'll be back in March 2017 and it will be one of our first stops!

I do not like to say negative things but the place was just ok. I am sure my review will not put a dent in their business. Everything looked beautiful and delicious, but in reality the cupcakes were a little dry and the icing was ridiculously sweet. My friends and I spent about $40.00 to try a few things and... More

Went with family got a couple cupcakes, key lime cheesecake, whoopie pie looking thing and some coffees. Service is pretty miserable, place is packed hard to even see the options, but these cup cakes, OMG! Got the chocolate raspberry Valentine's day cupcake, it was the best I've ever had. Worth the crowds and miserable servers. Coffee wasn't bad either.

Cute place by Rockefellar Center. Close to where they fill the today show. Big selection of cupcakes and cookies but not breakfast pastries. Service was friendly but a little "scatterbrained"

I stopped at Magnolia Bakery because my niece told me she loves their banana pudding. I decided I had to try it based on her comment. Am I glad I did. It is pure heaven. I suspect it's one of their biggest sellers. There are a number of Magnolia Bakeries in New York City. If you can, go to any... More

I used to frequent the Magnolia on Bleeker & West 11th many years ago, before it became super popular. The cupcakes taste the same but the secret is out. Expect to wait on very long lines (organized)

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
