It was recommended that we give this place a try. We were served quickly even with a long line. We both had s'mores cupcakes and they were delicious.

I like cakes but their cupcakes tasted like only sugar to me. Nothing special. Bit try and seriously sweet. But the atmosphere in the cafe was very cozy and I loved their style.

Must try the banana pudding. It is to die for! There have a location within the grand central terminal (take the stairs down) and it is an easy fix for my sweet tooth :-)

Good choice of decent New York cheesecake. Unfortunately not in the most scenic part of Grand Central, otherwise fine.

Generally an unpleasant experience but worth it for the seasonal banana pudding flavors. Line is often long, staff indifferent. You feel you keep being passed off to another member of the staff. Recommended but with reservations.
