2nd Magnolia I visit (first was in NY), a lot less crowded but exact same content, quality and sweetness. This time I had a slice of coconut cake (a piece of heaven) and some brownies to go. For me, as a tourist with a sweet tooth, going to Magnolia is an absolute must every chance I got. Also very well... More

I don't know why but the cupcakes we had this time were not as great tasting as before, they certainly look the same, but I was a bit underwhelmed surprisingly.

We tried the cupcakes and we weren't disappointed, they were yummy. Definitely recommend it. There is so much to choose from but we asked the staff which one are the most popular cupcakes as we couldn't decide.

I was supposed to meet a friend there and while waiting for her, I was offered a sample piece of Banana something and it was very delicious. Lovely atmosphere.

This place located close to the beverly center, is sweet and amazing. The cupcakes and the banana puding is out of this world. Parking is a nightmare, but at two blocks you have a shopping center. Take that advantage.
