Best velvet and marble cheese cake in Astoria. Love the window presentation and the atmosphere inside! Great place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee.

I don't miss much about NYC but this place definitely makes the list. The cupcakes are the best I have ever had and I am not ashamed to say that I actively miss them.

The cupcakes are good but the staff is awful. Every time I go there go buy anything to go or to stay the staff does something filthy that I catch. They sneeze into their hands and then handle the food, I've seen them wipe their noses while they're standing around and don't wash up before helping people. I can only imagine how the rest of the place is run when the people up front aren't aware of how disgusting they're being.

Pros: Good cupcakes

Cons: ...if you don't mind somebody's snot on them.

Being a baker myself, I'm incredibly picky about bakeries. I can't possibly claim to have tried all the bakeries in the city, but I've certainly tried many and Martha's Country Bakery is my favorite. It's simply outstanding! I have yet to try their pies but the cookies are simple (as I believe a cookie should be) and delicious.
On to the cupcakes-so wonderful! They carry several varieties, from your basic vanilla/chocolate and chocolate/chocolate to chocolate/oreo, chocolate/peanut butter and butter/pistachio (cake/frosting). All of the buttercreams are fantastic (not too sweet, no greasy feeling) but the chocolate....simply divine!
AND they're expanding-so, yay!

Pros: CLEAN!, decor, open late, friendly service, very well managed

Cons: I want to eat everything!

I am in the cupcake club and must say that this place seriously has the best cupcakes in the city. LOVE, love, love it. Super cute interior and friendly feeling. The most unique cupcake I have found is the chocolate with vanila oreo frosting! A must have.

Just looking at this new bakery with all its decor and the stage it sets for the visitors entrance, the display of their baked goods makes you salivate for a taste even more! On the ever growing Ditmars Avenue in the Long Island City area, this new eatery satisfies all appetites and their prices satisfies every budget! Whether you choose to sit down amongst your neighbors or take out, a visit to this well run establishment will surely not be forgotten easily. A little out of the way but not that far from a walk from the Subway (N or W train) A Bus Ride. A Cab Ride. Well worth the trip!

Wow this was a real treat to find. I've tried so many bakeries throughout the city to see who has the best cupcakes and this one is definitely it. It's moist and not overly sweet. They acutally have the best chocolate cupcakes. It's moist and flavorful not dry like most of the more famous bakeries out there. They also got the chocolate frosting right. Acutally out of the 6 cupcakes i've tried , all frosting was superb.. not overly sweet and complimented the cake flavors perfectly. Vanilla was good, chocolate with vanilla was excellent. Pistacio was good, black forest was great. All of them not overly sweet and just the perfect amount of flavor. This bakery has the right balance of sweetness for the cupcakes. SO going back to try the others!
