Review:

If you’re in the Bleecker area of NYC, you might as well go to Minetta TavernManatus and then complete the lovely M trio and go to Magnolia Bakery for a cupcake (well, if you’re really, really hungry). There is even a little park near the bakery for you to sit and enjoy your cake, and if you’re like my partner Owl, you’ll sit and eat it and love it so much that you’ll need to immediately go and buy another one for later, just because you might not get the chance again.

This place was featured in an episode of Sex and the City and therefore still gets a lot of tourist trade, but it’s definitely worth its hype – the cakes are creamy and utterly delicious, if not good for your health in any way whatsoever except for the (temporary) great happiness that they’ll bring you. Basically, if you’re in New York and you don’t go, you’ll regret it.
