NileGuide Expert tip:
In addition to its West Village location, Magnolia also has branches at Rockefeller Center and on the Upper West Side, at 200 Columbus Avenue.
Made famous by the HBO series "Sex and the City," Magnolia Bakery is a popular destination for tourists and natives alike looking for a sugary fix to sweeten their day. Eager patrons line up (sometimes around the block) for one of Magnolia's famous cupcakes, laden with buttercream frosting and available in flavors such as S'mores or Snickers. The bakery also serves up a variety of other desserts, including chocolate cream pie tart, carrot cake, or icebox cake. Order up an entire cake or pie for a special celebration, or check in during the holidays for a selection of special seasonal offerings.
