    One of my favorite places to get something sweet and a coffee on the Upper East. And I am picky about my coffee!

    What a cute little shop! Their cheesecakes and their cupcakes are amazing. Stop by if you're in the UES, but watch out for long lines during the busier hours.

    Get the red velvet and Brooklyn Blackout. The best cupcake shop in America. I've tried Georgetown, Sprinkles, and Magnolia before.

    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...)

    Their Brooklyn Blackout cupcakes are super filling and delicious. Probably one of the softest cupcakes I've ever had.

    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.

    I trek from Bushwick to get cakes and confections from this place. Brooklyn Blackout may be their signature cake, but I adore the red velvet!

    Huge cupcakes (but they also have smaller versions). The peanut butter one is heavy, greasy — and yet delicious.

    The Brooklyn Blackout cupcake is the perfect mix of chocolate cake, pudding, and icing. Pretty much divine.

    Brooklyn blackout is 'the ultimate treat' and Two Little Red Hens is 'the place'. All your other Brooklyn what-if's don't stand a chance.

    They do run out of their cupcakes towards the end of the day. We resorted to their pecan pie - drove us nuts in a good way!

    NYC [Eat] The banana cupcakes with cream cheese are the best of their kind. Moist and flavorful with just the right amount of decadence. Grab one or two.

    The Brooklyn blackout is Absolutely Perfect! Everyone should eat this. Other than that, you really can't go wrong! I just had a Ginger cupcake and even that was delicious.

    The Brooklyn Blackout cupcake tastes like boxed devil's cake + average chocolate pudding + grocery store fudge icing. All that just for the hefty price of $4!

    Very cute little bakery. The cupcakes are a good size, but unfortunately the key lime cupcake wasn't that great. It didn't have enough flavor for my extreme love of key lime.
