    I don't know from personal experience, but my friend was just in NYC and told me that Magnolia Bakery (the bakery that was featured on Sex and the City) has amazing cupcakes. http://www.magnoliabakery.com/home.php over 7 years ago

    Magnolia is not the best anymore. Once upon a time, perhaps, but now they are too big. They are the "touristy" cupcake. Crumbs is a citywide chain and is pretty good. I think Amy's Bread in midtown has the best, personally. There's also a cupcake truck that goes to different locations around the city that I hear is amazing. Never had it myself, but if you google it, I bet you'll find it. almost 7 years ago

    If you're looking for good deserts in general, and are open to it, there is an awesome waffle cart called 'Waffles and Dinges'. IT WAS SO FREAKIN GOOD. They make fresh waffles and you can put a whole assortment of toppings on your waffle. Im pretty sure they post where they are on there twitter page. almost 7 years ago

    Personally I find the red velvet to be the best at Magnolia. All the other flavors I have tried are really super sweet...
    Crumbs cupcakes are in more locations and the presentation of the cupcakes is much nicer. They are huge u can totally split one between two people! almost 7 years ago

    By far, Amy's bread (various locations) has the best. Crumbs and Magnolia are not as scrumptious. almost 7 years ago

    I think Billy's Bakery has the best cupcakes. They have 4 locations and amazing cream cheese kind of icing. Also, Baked by Melissa offer the most incredible miniature cupcakes. I used to be a fan of Magnolia, but think these two are better almost 7 years ago

    Magnolia is very (!!!) overrated in my opinion, at least as far as cupcakes go. I like Crumbs. There's also a new small chain (at most five locations) called Baked by Melissa, which makes cupcakes that are teeny and gooey - almost not even cupcakes, but good nonetheless. I'm sure there are some good one of a kind places, too - but I haven't gotten that far (yet). almost 7 years ago

    My now ex made us go on the Sex and the City Tour which caused irreparable damage to my psyche. However, one of the highlights was the visit to Magnolias.

    Having said that, I'm not sure if it was because I was bored out of my skull or hungry, but it tasted great. If the length of the queue outside was anything to go by, then a good number if people would probably vote this place as the best.

    I've since had better cupcakes, but that was in another city in another country... almost 7 years ago
