We stopped in during part of our sex in the city tour and got a cupcake to go. I didn't get to enjoy it until the next day but it was still delicious!

As cake lover, you wouldnt wanna miss Magnolia Bakery! Their cupcake is so moist and just heavenly good. I tried their lime cheese cake as well, but nothing compare to the good old chocolate cupcake. Seriously. Get in line.

Hands down the best banana pudding I've ever tasted! It was my first, to be honest, but I've never eaten a better one after that! Don't specutale on one of the crammed tables, the place is tiny. Just pick up the treat of your choice and make your way up to central park.

I headed here after Top of The Rock as I needed a sweet treat. The Magnolia Bakery is famous in NYC, most usually for it’s Banana Pudding, but as I am not much of a banana fan I knew I would have to reach for something a little different. After perusing the cabinets for several minutes (this is another location... More

I bake cupcakes and I've eaten a lot of cupcakes, but nothing has come close to Magnolia's cupcakes! They are baked fresh daily and the staff are literally icing them, and putting fresh batches out, as you order! We tried the chocolate ones, the confetti one and the traditional vanilla flavour... All amazing! We were too full to try any... More

I found out about this bakery when my best friend from Italy visited New York. She heard about it from some friends and she also knew it was broadcasted in the SEX AND THE CITY series. Since then it became my favorite bakery in NYC - I love their cupcakes, their banana pudding and I never tried something that I... More

We called in here when we were passing and we certainly are glad we did. The cakes and pastries were beautiful. In a city where the choice of good is immense, I would still recommend the Magnolia bakery to anyone who lives their cakes!!

We searched this place out after hearing about it This location is small and quaint - with a packed line - but the deserts are out of this world Try the banana pudding - the hot chocolate and the vanilla bean cheesecake are excellent as well!

Title says it all. Unbelievable cheesecake. Absolutely perfect. The texture, the crust, the level of sweetness? Nailed it.

As someone who does not like anything banana flavoured I was shocked to find that the banana pudding is absolutely delicious! Highly recommend. The only reason I tried it is because I seen people talking about it on Tripsdvisor and i'm so glad I did. Perfect mix of creamy with sponge and banana. There are many locations and even one...

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.
