The perpetually long lines might be due to the bakery's "Sex and the City" fame, but don't understimate These desserts have a cultish following, and it's easy to understand why--nothing on the menu administers anything less than a spectacular dose of sugar. Addictive red velvet cupcakes come slathered in an icing that's as pure an expression of sugar, vanilla and butter as you're going to find. Or try a slice of the decadent "cherries jubilee," a moist mini cheesecake or the legendary banana pudding.

I've been eating Magnolia cupcakes since they've opened, but had taken a 2 year or so hiatus.

I would have loved to give this 5 stars, but Customer Service is really important to me.

I heard about this place in the West Village that all the celebrities and models go to. I am a cupcake freak and was a little skeptical that I would be disappointed, as oftern the situation is that there is hype about a certain product or place, and then it turns out that it really wasn't worth the hype. But curiousity got the best of me, and one Saturday morning i decided to trek down to Bleecker Street and try one of these famous cupcakes. Well the line was long, which was a bit frustrating, but , alas, the cupcakes were absolutely divine, pure heaven. I got two chocolate ones and could easily have eaten three or four more. I do not know what the bakers at Magnolia do, but whatever they are doing, its working!! Keep up the good work guys!!

Magnolia was amazing! We LOVED their mini cheesecakes we even took some home on our flight to MN. You have to go here if you are in NY!

We stopped by here after shopping on 5th Avenue. I had heard soo much about how great their cupcakes were. I had one of their vanilla cupcakes and it's true. Very moist, delicious. Good thing I had done quite a bit of walking...there's gotta be hundreds of calories in the frosting alone...delicious and worth every bite!

A scrumptious dessert choice. Locations through out Manhattan and even one in Los Angeles. The cupcakes are beautifully decorated and it's almost a shame to eat them - but we did!
