Billy's Bakery: "Fresh Cupcakes for Dinner" Billy's Bakery Tip by setikeyvan

Billy's Bakery, New York City: 2 reviews and 3 photos


My friend who lives in New York took us here and it was a fabulous idea! This is a darling Bakery in the east village. It's a wonderful blast in the past with a 60's feel! They serve tons of fresh desserts here, but they are known for their cup cakes. It's a great place to stop for little dessert after a nice dinner. The place is usually packed, but the service is fast and efficient. It smells so good in there - a mix of sweet and spicy flavors. The cup cakes are so pretty, I almost did not want to eat mine.
