Magnolia's: "Got a sweet tooth?" Top 5 Page for this destination Magnolia Bakery Tip by shutterlust
Magnolia Bakery, New York City: 4 reviews and 7 photos
The sweetest little place in Manhattan. Located in the West Village, deep down on 11th and Bleecker, Magnolia's is a bakery famous for it's CUPCAKES!
Now, some people have told me that cupcakes are for children's birthday parties. No one of a mature age and mind would go all the way down to the West Village for a cupcake. BS!
These cupcakes are not just cupcakes. They are the grandaddy of all cupcakes. The frosting is the part to die for. The cake is so-so and you can find better. But who really eats a cupcake for the cake?!
As you approach the bakery which is located right on the corner with a blue awning, you start to smell the baked sugary goodness! I believe the cupcakes are about $1.50 now and you can only get a dozen at a time because they are just THAT popular. [getting a magnolai's craving now..]
Also, Magnolia's was featured in Sex and the City and in Jessica Simpson's recent "Sweet" cosmetic line adverts.
Favorite Dish: CUPCAKES! They're right by the window. You pop in, grab one...or two...of twelve...and pop out. It's self service and there are tissues and boxes to pack them in. You have to wait for them to bring out new batches, which they do almost every half hour because they go like *THAT!*
