I love to buy the odd cupcake here and pop over to the park opposite to eat it. Nice selection and definitely worth a visit!

This had to be one of the driest cupcakes I have ever had. If it is ok'd, pull it from the case and do not sell it. Nobody wants a stale bakery item. Heard good things about this place but was disappointed.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Can't hurt to order it in advance. We did that for my dad's birthday and it was definitely worth it, since we wanted a specific flavor.
