Everyone told me to try butter cake when I got to this place. I bought only one piece (approx. 3x3") as I thought it would be too sweet for my tastes. Wrong. Perfect balanced sweetness with the deliciousness of butter flavor. Next time, I am...More

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.

I thought whoopie pies were a Philadelphia/Pennsylvania thing but this was the only bakery anywhere in the city that we found them. They had a lot of tasty-looking treats but we stuck to the whoopie pies - traditional, cookies n creme, pumpkin and mint/chocolate.

I have tried a few things from here , but was not impressed. It's been a while so maybe I should try again. I do remember smiling at the thick colorful rice crispy square in their case.
