The cupcake bakery that started it all.  Still in its original and cozy Bleecker Street location where on any sunny Saturday, the lines go around the block.   The Bakery now also has a larger location on the Upper West Side and one in Midtown, in Rockerfeller Center.  All sell the same sweet delights.

What's great:

Vanilla and chocolate buttermilk cupcakes with pretty pastel vanilla or chocolate buttercream icing applied with a heavy hand.  Other favorites are red velvet cake or cupcakes, a towering coconut layer cake, icebox cake and their "famous" banana pudding.

What to know:

The Upper West Side location has party room that can accomodate up to 20.   The Rockefeller Center shop is open for breakfast.  If you want to be sure they have something ready made, or if you wish to buy more than 20 cupcakes at a time, you need to place a special order.  They make pies, including pecan and seasonal fruit pies.

They'll deliver all over New York City.
