These cupcakes are good, dammit. »

3.0 Stars

Someone I know who worked on TV shows in New York as a low-level guy regaled me with stories of his boss getting fucked up and demanding that he be driven by Magnolia to shout obscenities at anyone dumb enough to stand in line for cupcakes. I get that. But, these cupcakes are fucking tasty. I'm not going to wait for them, but if it's not overrun with tourists, I'm so stuffing my face. Also, their red velvet cake gets my southern stamp of approval. Consider the price a helpful reminder that you don't need to eat a half-dozen cupcakes, under any circumstances, ever.

I like the ambiance. I like how it's very self-servish, and cutesy. But I honestly don't like the taste of those cupcakes.

Great cupcakes for about $2.50-$3 a piece. You could get a cavity just looking at the cakes, which are also amazing. Grab a cupcake and a huge glass of milk and eat in the park across the street. Docked a star because it's usually packed and the people are snarky. The midtown location tends to be better about both of these complaints, but it's just not the same as the original, faults and all.

everyone and their mom was coming here even before Sex and the City made it popular with midwestern tourists. everything will satisfy your sugar craving, though I'm annoyed that their cupcakes are more expensive than other bakeries in the city. I get around this frustration by ordering the banana pudding, which is awesome. there is no seating in the W. Village location, though they've expanded to 2 more locations uptown that are a little bigger.

I have a sweet tooth, and magnolia provides me with a syringe of sweet frosting escape. I love all the cupcakes here; red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, something else awesome maybe I don't even know about yet. But one of my favorite things they sell here is the Banana Pudding, its kind of like eating cake batter with bits of banana and nilla wafers peppered throughout. Grab a pint of pudding or a dozen cupcakes and catch a movie down the street while gorging yourself.
