This bakery has a wide variety of treats. Their black and white cake and their whoopee pies are wonderful. Don't miss their butter cakes, either.

We needed something sweet after our lunch at Reading Terminal Market, so we stopped by Flying Monkey for some butter cake. I'd never tried butter cake before, and it was really good! It is super sweet and rich, so sharing a piece was perfect. It...More

I rate food on whether I would ask for it as part of my last meal, if ever I was unfortunately on death row. The salted caramel Whoopie, made with oatmeal cookies, is that level. Not a joke. Not a drill. Literally a MUST HAVE....More

Friendly staff but I didn't like the cupcake at all... cake part was dry & I don't know what type of icing that was. I prefer buttercream... I wish I would have went to another place.

I read about the butter cake on here, and got a piece to try when I was there. It is very rich, but delicious! I also got a smores bar which was very good.

I got a brownie with cookie dough on top that was very yummy and wished I had gotten more than one! Lots of options and friendly employees.

Personally, I love the cupcakes (The last time I was there I had a chocolate cupcake with lavender frosting.), but my husband swears by the whoopie pies. It's all good.

Fun name. Yummy baked goods. Bought a traditional Whoopi pie a piece of butter cake and a lemon bar. The butter cake was more of a bar and all was super yummy. In the Reading Market so it's worth stopping in to see the place,...More
