Pistasicio cupcake was yummy. If you are not use to American sized portions, it was a normal sized cupcake that punched with flavour. If you have a sweet tooth your like this. Reminded me somewhat of Lola's cupcakes in the UK

I really want to like this place, I do. But the over-buttered, over-sugared same old same old just isn't worth it. The banana pudding offers heart attack assurance. The icebox cake is my favorite. But ultimately it feels a bit like the McDonalds of cupcake...More

I know they're known for cupcakes, but I found the cupcakes pretty mediocre. Typical overly-sweet cupcakes, seems to me. It is a cute little shop. Cakes look amazing (but I didn't try any). The regular banana pudding is really good. Get the large (you can...More

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

Can't hurt to order it in advance. We did that for my dad's birthday and it was definitely worth it, since we wanted a specific flavor.
