    You haven't had cupcakes until you've had these cupcakes! Hands down, the best! I strongly recommend Brooklyn Blackout and Boston Creme! Eat your heart out, foodies! This little place is amazing!

    The carrot cake is the best carrot cake you will ever have! The mini cupcakes, breakfast scones and coffee are all great too! Don't be discouraged by the line - it's worth it and goes pretty quick.

    What a little hole in the wall bakery. Everything in the cases looked delicious & I wanted one of each. However, a must is the NY style & pumpkin cheesecake, if it's in season. Super friendly staff!!!

    Moistest cupcakes ever! Decent Red Velvet but my faves are the Key Lime & Carrot cake! Will need to try their scones, pies & cheesecake - just wish they had strawberry.

    Everything is delicious. Most people go for their cupcakes, but try their cheesecake, pies (pecan and berry-type), and scones! Prices are reasonable.

    Cozy lil bakery on upper east side. Scrumptious cupcakes packed with perfection: not too sweet and cream isn't too overpowering. Cupcakes are perfectly moist. Coconut creams are a must try!

    Great place for cupcakes and cheesecake. Seasonal pumpkin cheesecake is delicious. Carrot cupcake is good. Brooklyn Blackout cupcake is very rich; a whole one might be too much. Accepts credit cards.

    Two Little Red Hens is best bakery shop. It is famous bakery for cup cakes in town. Once we purchased cupcakes and coffee from this bakery, the taste was yummy and delicious. All products are great.

    You can't go wrong with a chocolate pecan pie; a fine, fine apple pie; or in the fall, an excellent harvest pie, filled with apples, pears, walnuts, and a hit of ginger.

    Get the filled cupcakes: Brooklyn Blackout, and Peanut Butter Fudge Swirl are the best. If you're playing safe, get the Red Velvet (they use cream cheese frosting - they know what they're doing).

    The cheesecake is to die for! Also the Brooklyn blackout muffin is amazing! Prepare yourself for a line of 20 min in the morning or afternoon

    Brooklyn blackout cupcakes, marble cake, key lime pie? Why choose, get them all. Also in minis. Best cupcake in the city!

    If you're not in the mood for their famous cupcakes and cheesecake, might I recommend their scones (almond cherry is my favorite) or a buttery biscuit with jam? You won't regret it!

    The icing on the red velvet tastes like cheesecake; i preferred eating this over the cake itself. Some seating available. Nice place to relax and catch up with friends over dessert.

    Carrot cake w cream cheese frosting was the best (over red velvet and the chocolate). So moist! Cheesecake has amazing texture but was too sweet for me.

    Coffee, ginger plum scone, cupcakes (especially the Brooklyn Blackout), cakes... You name it. It's outstanding. The service is really good too.

    I could say that the chocolate mousse pie is sublime and amazing but i won't as it sells out too quickly already. Brooklyn blackout is recommended if you want/love/NEED chocolate in your life.

    The Brooklyn Blackout - chocolate cakes + pudding + ganache is where it's at. It's usually not available until noon time or later. Don't stop by in the morning or you'll be left empty handed :)

    The Brooklyn Blackout is amazing! This is literally the best bakery I have ever been to. Red Velvet and Peanut Butter Fudge cakes are second best... Coffee is so so but not decent...

    There's a good reason this place is #1. The Brooklyn Blackout and Peanut Butter Fudge are the best cupcakes I've ever had.

    Delicious cakes! Can't decide? Go with their red velvet cake, or Brooklyn Blackout. Their sizes are perfect! Limited seating though, so hope you're okay with takeout.

    Delightful, cozy, cute, great value. Everything I tasted was phenomenal. Strongly recommend the cheesecake, pecan pie, and vanilla cupcake. Definitely worth a visit (and many more)

    I am a huge fan of their classic cheesecake. The crust is amazing if you're a crust person. I guess their famous Brooklyn Blackout cupcake isn't too bad either, if you LOVE chocolate. :)

    Their Vanilla cupcake is probably one of the best however, I just tried the Peanut Butter & Fudge and it is pure heaven. Wonderfully moist and the icing is perfectly peanut "buttery". Amazing.

    Great neighborhood spot with very good coffee (and I am particular). However, because it is such a great spot, don't be surprised if there's a line out the door.

    The Brooklyn Blackout was tasty but SOOO rich, so you need to really be in the mood for tons of chocolate. I got a full-sized one; in retrospect, I would've tried two different smalls.

    After dodging the helicopter moms, needy grandmas, and the cranky kids, you will be treated to an all around perfect cupcake. Sweet enough to sooth the sweet tooth to sleep without a sugar overdose

    The cupcakes are to die for, especially the Peanut Butter Fudge Swirl. Cakes in all sizes perfect for celebrating and don't forget seasonal pies! 😋

    They have a vast custom cake menu that allows you to pick and choose the type of cake, filling and frosting you would like. The red velvet with cream cheese frosting is the way to go. Read more

    Brooklyn blackout!! Omg so rich and moist and fluffy. What I like the most is the frosting, not too sugary not too greasy just perfect

    Best cupcakes & cake in NYC. They don’t use American buttercream, so the frosting isn’t that gross grainy texture.

    Brooklyn Blackout and the peanut butter fudge cupcakes are the best! The cake is moist and the frosting in the best ever (and I usually hate frosting).

    Their chocolate cake cupcakes are the best, with great frosting. Cheesecake is good too. However, the red velvet is subpar (go to sprinkles instead).

    Beware of hipsters. It is NYC, after all. Delicious cupcakes. Good after a meal at the German restaurant next door. (You may need to do what we did and walk off dinner first...)

    They are properly rated - believe the hype as the lines before every holiday are for good reason. Pies, cakes, cup cakes they knock it out of the park routinely.

    Crowded but if you order ahead you can just pickup. Great Brooklyn blackout and coconut cakes both moist and not too sweet or too much frosting

    Their American Classic is perfect. If you're stopping in on your morning commute grab a tri-berry scone and an Irving Farms coffee.

    Good spot on the UES when your sweet tooth is craving some red velvet. Can't go wrong with any dessert here but you should definitely try the pumpkin cupcake.

    Great cinnamon rolls (remove the raisins). Mom's favorite carrot cake. Reasonably priced & beautifully presented mini cake options. And good iced coffee!
