Stopped here for dessert in the Reading Market. Nice selection. I chose the chocolate butter cake and it was delicious.

We bought a Blondie from this bakery after having our lunch in the food hall. They looked really good from the stand however we really didn’t enjoy the taste.

Wonderful desserts! The whoopie pie was great! Highly recommend stopping here for something sweet. The cupcakes were moist. They even had a vegan cupcake that my sis could eat! Its worth walking through the crowd to get to these sweets!

We had the red velvet cookies and cream and the classic. They were both excellent, as was the service. Surprisingly, Whole Foods Whoopie Pies are the best I have ever had. But Flying Monkey is a close second.
