This is the second time I have tried Molly's. I can't say anything great about the cupcakes. My daughter had a chocolate mousse cupcake which was much better than mine. I chose a vanilla cupcake and had them ice it with vanilla icing. I think the fact they keep the cupcakes in tupperware makes the tops very soft and take... More

Very nice variety of treats. Good for desert or just an extra snack. I would even have my breakfast from here.

Molly's is a favorite whenever I'm in the city. Most cupcake shops make their flavors by piping in a filling into a white or chocolate cake and just adding flavored icing. Molly's cupcakes are very different as each flavor is unique. Peach cobbler, chocolate peanut butter, peanut butter nutella, blueberry cheesecake...you can't go wrong. Skip Magnolia and come straight to... More

These are truly amazing cupcakes. I came here after reading these are great cupcakes in the city. I was a bit wary because these lists often include places like Magnolia, which is just not a good cupcake. So I decided to give it a shot. I got the birthday cake cupcake and the hot chocolate cupcake. The birthday cake cupcake... More

Loved it! Super cute spot with swings set up at the bar for added fun. Plenty of seating and a great variety of treats. We bought a dozen and a half for our Christmas get together and our family LOVED them! Friendly and helpful staff. Packed perfectly for train travel to Westchester!

This place was recommended to me by a friend and she got it so right! The shop is such a cute cool place to hang out and the cupcakes are on point! My husband loved the brownie- said it was the best brownie he'd ever had! If you're looking to cure your sweet tooth while in NYC definitely go to... More

As part of a food tour I ended up at Mollys cupcakes where you build your own cupcakes. You get to choose what sponge, filling and topping you'd like. The cafe is school themed (yellow school bus) with class room tables and cafeteria trays. The stay were polite and didn't mind me taking forever to choose which ones I wanted... More

Friendly coffeeshop scene and helpful staff compliment the absolute best cupcakes our family have consumed in many, many moons.

I loved that you could get interesting flavors (peach cobbler, creme brulee) along with the classic cupcake favorites. I tried two cupcakes and was deeply impressed by both of them. My party of six all enjoyed as well. Expensive, but typical NYC expensive. I would go back and have another of any of their delicious treats.

We found this place due to our daughters namesake. We each had a different cupcake and both were delicious and very friendly people working there too. Thank you

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
