Molly's Cupcakes are the best in NYC, hands down. Possibly best I've had in or out of the city - and I don't just say the because we share a name. We found Molly's Cupcakes when we were getting lunch nearby at Ellary's Greens, and we had to try them. So soft, not dry, good amount of frosting, delicious flavors.

I thought the cupcakes were very good, but not overwhelming. There was a variety of unusual flavors, I really enjoyed the cookie dough center cupcake. They were very moist and lots of frosting. I think that is the only reason why they come close to being worth the $3.75 per cupcake cost being charged. I would expect that the cupcake... More

They are good cupcakes but it's cupcakes. They are moist with decent choices of toppings and they put lots of it. I sure hope so since it's $2.50 per cupcake if you take the Molly size (reg size). I make cupcakes just as good. The decor is very cute.

The cupcakes are so good! I had a vanilla with chocolate frosting and a blueberry streusel cupcake! They serve my favorite coffee-Intelligentsia (Molly's blend). Very cute atmosphere in one of my favorite NY neighborhoods. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

We visited Molly's and sat on the swings inside the shop and had the most wonderful cupcakes! My daughter had the cake batter and I had the pumpkin spice and my wife had a creme brûlée. Just awesome! And we took some home! Do not miss.

This cupcake shop was among many other wonderful shops in our West village food tour. Simply stated: Molly's cupcake rocks. Soft tender flavourful cupcakes. Banana and vanilla was my choice. The icing was good as well. If you are near West village in NY, go grab a bite.

I've had cupcakes from bakeries all over NYC and I still keep going back to Molly's. Every part of the cupcake is delicious, the frosting isn't too sweet, and the flavor combinations are creative and complementary. You really can't go wrong with any of the flavors but if I had to pick my favorites, they would be the Ron Bennington... More

I love cupcakes and Molly's have been the best in the city I have found. I have tried them all and other than anything chocolate the strawberry shortcake is a must have. The filled and unfilled all terrific.

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.
