  • Bakeries / Specialty Cakes


Here you can fortify yourself with whole-wheat doughnuts; thick, fluffy waffles; and hearty soups. Cupcake Cafe crafts dense cakes and cupcakes with the thickest buttercream frosting we’ve tasted. Choose from their signature floral designs and sports motifs for either. Cakes start at $45; cupcakes are $2.50 and $3.50 apiece. Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld


One look at the gorgeous buttercream flowers in this bakery's quaint cupcake display and you'll understand why it's many New Yorkers' favorite baker. The café also uses its signature bright buttercream icing on its wedding cakes. From $10 per slice.
