    After years of R&D, it was here where 4SQ's "Pilgrim" technology *actually worked* for the very first time (Aug 16, 2013). This was Foursquare's "invented the Flux Capacitor" moment. :)

    Everything is basically heaven in your mouth here: Pistachio, Dreaming Princess, Southern Red Velvet, and Carrot Cake. Wait is a bit long if there's a line so prepare to just stand there... Standing.

    Get a slice of the Black and White cake To Go. Bring it home as a surprise treat for your wife. It will totally erase all the sh*t you're in trouble for. Yeah, it's that good.

    We ordered red velvet and carrot cupcakes and raspberry and Nutella cheesecakes. Everything tasty. We went on a Sunday morning, so there was no line, and the attendance was super quick.

    Hands down the best vanilla bean cake I've ever had. The slices of cake are more expensive then the cupcakes, but worth it. The layers of icing make the cake more moist and delicious then cupcake imho

    One of the best bakeries in NYC. Cookie Dough Cake slice was tremendous, possibly the best cake I’ve ever had. Brooklyn Blackout cupcake was very good but the cake of the cupcake was not too good.

    Banana pudding was scrumptious. They have adorable single-serving cheesecakes in a variety of flavors, and are famous for their black and white cupcakes.

    Not just a little cupcake bakeshop, the gluten free pistachio cheesecake is pretty decent as well! Love that it's not so sugary sweet unlike most American bakes.

    Split the Brooklyn Blackout cake slice. Very moist. Decadent. The Oreo and coconut cake looked great as well. Actually, it all looked great.

    They have an iced chai latte perfect for humid summer days, had it with almond milk (ran out of soy) and it tasted like horchata… ?anyway im making it my go-to drink!

  • Elvis RodricksJuly 22, 2018

    What you get here are cupcakes with no preservatives or shortening- you'll notice in taste and texture. The carrot cupcake was freshly soft and top cream was delicious.

    Most of their cakes also come as a cupcake, so try them first to see what you like since the cake portions are big. Everything is delicious though, you can't go wrong.

  • Andrew ChoiMarch 15, 2014

    Delicious cupcakes with cake equivalents. Cake portions are huge! Try the Dreaming Princess, because I'm a dreaming princess.

    My go-to coffee spot in the neighborhood. Their cakes are pretty insane too (and I'm not a sweets guy).

    They offer a lot for a bakery including breakfast/early lunch options (oatmeal, too). Atmosphere and brand are super cohesive. Staff are helpful and listen. Cakes look awesome, so I stay away.

    Umm...they have an adorable little ice cream cart in the summer (parked just outside of the shop) and the red velvet is AH-MAZING. There's red velvet cake IN IT. Yeah. I know.

    ProTip for Summer 2014: Take your iced coffee to go and enjoy it on the leather chairs across the street (outside the leather shoppe!)

    You can't miss this place, the cupcakes are to DIE for. Perfectly baked with perfect amount of sugar. They bake right in front of you, super fresh!

    Cake by the slice in multiple flavors is the way to go! Yum!

  • Jane JohnsenFebruary 14, 2014

    Adorable and seriously one of the best bakeries in town! I got the simple but utterly divine vanilla cupcake w/ chocolate frosting. Moist, not too sweet, and had the perfect crumb!

    this place has deceptively good coffee, never has a line, and has a tiny little model of itself on the wall (for all you fans of meta-dollhouses)

    Everything is good here - love the German chocolate cake and the Vanilla Bean icecream is addictive. Great date spot....

    Homemade Ice cream is sooo underrated! If you like red velvet cake, the southern red velvet cake ice cream is off the charts!!

    Try a piece of Nutella Banana Chocolate Chip cake, it's amazing. But be careful: it is huuuuuge

    Amazing cheesecakes! Lovely cupcakes and cosy environment.

  • Gansevoort Hotel GroupJanuary 19, 2011

    A must try cupcake shop. Our favorites are the red velvet, the carrot and the "mott" street (a tiramisu inspired cupcake) which can all be washed down with some fantastic Illy coffee!

    Geoffrey VasudevanAugust 20, 2016

    The smores brownie is amazing especially if you can warm it up! Also the ice cream is surprisingly good

    Cupcakes are good but experiment with some of the more eccentric takes on classics like key lime pie and cheesecakes.

    Cute little shop in Soho. You will love this place if you like sweets. My favorite is the Brooklyn.

    True to it’s name. Nice place to get a mini cupcake when a regular size might be just a bit too much.

  • Little Cupcake Bakeshop (92)

    TiffanyNovember 16, 2015

    Lots and lots of cupcake and cake options! Get the cookies and creme cheesecake or the banana pudding.

    Banana. Nutella. Cake. Moist and delicious. Get a coffee to balance things out.

    Banana pudding is amazing. Cheesecakes are also really good. Slices of cake are really really big.

    Blue Velvet is not just a seminal film by David Lynch — it is also a delicious cupcake at the Little Cupcake Bake Shop.
