Forget Magnolia....! – I stumbled upon this joint when trying to find the B&H Camera store...... Well, I'm so grateful.
The name was intruiging so in I went. I was a bit put off at first at the bland interior but then the display of cupcakes at the back caught my eye! All sorts of wonderful flavours and combinations... As I was going to a friend's for dinner that evening I bought six. We had such fun cutting and tasting and comparing.
These are most definitley the best cupcakes I have ever tasted and worth crossing town for .....
I was the only customer in the store so I had the full attention of the lady behind the counter who was so sweet and pleasant to me.
I can't comment on anything else as I only bought cupcakes, but the really were a treat....
Blend Burgers – The name itself should have explained that this place lacks some serious creativity but I walked in anyway due to my midday hunger. I ordered a Turkey burger with Pepper Jack Cheese.
The burger is on the small side and it is just blend. Turkey pattie is slightly dry and tiny and the seasoning is just average. I could get a much bigger and better Turkey Burger at Paul's Burger Joint on St. Marks.
Also ordered the sweet potato fries and they were alright. They were not very crunchy.
best burger ever...nice staff and the lady in the front had an answer for everything – best burger ever!!! Plus the service was so sweet,,we came in with five people at noon and the waitress was very nice put tables together even though she had other people to take care of. she was busy so the lady in front was nice enough to take the time to tell us what the veggie burger is made of theicicng on different cupckes and that ther was a milkshake special, we had a great meal. i hope we tiped enough, we are all kind of hard up so sorry to the waitstaff we only left 4 bucks sorry!!
Huge insect in our drink, horrible service! – The food is mediocre the service is just HORRIBLE. We ordered lemonades and pizza. I had always stuck to the burger in the past (ordered "to go" 2 times before), so I wanted to try something else that they offer. They took a while to get the lemonades to us and when the drinks arrived my friend's had a HUGE insect floating in her drink! That is pretty unappetizing in itself, but to be fair we thought that perhaps the insect flew in because the doors were open, and not the alternative- that their sanitary habits are disgusting. Anyway, it just went downhill from there. We told our waitress and she didn't even flinch. She just asked if we wanted another lemonade. What? We asked for bottled water... she brought tap. The pizza was laughable. I could get better just about ANYWHERE in NYC! Awful sauce, awful crust, awful taste. I ordered a type of pizza that is supposed to have arugula and radicchio that had NO arugula/radicchio on it- it had neither. The plain lettuce that DID end up on the pizza had dressing on it... it was a bad combination that was not stipulated on the menu. My friend's pizza indicated it had tomato sauce according to the menu, but came with no tomato sauce. What kind of business are they running? After the bad food, the lack of service (she never came by again after dropping off the pizzas), we were ready to go. Of course, they ended up charging us for 2 lemonades even though we didn't drink 2 lemonades because of the insect experience. I told her about the "error" and she just snatched the check and hand wrote "total minus 3 dollars." I love trying new foods and different places and I'm certainly not a frequent complainer, but this place is not worth it. We left no tip and got out of there. You've been warned.
OMG this place is a rip off the worse burgerservice ever for the price you would think they would use real bread not wonder bread. also the pizza is the nastiest ever. what a dump !!!
best burgers and cupcakes ever. – this place is my favorite restaurant in new york. first of all, skip the fries, theyre mediocre and the burger will fill you up. the buffalo burger is the best, its big and juicy and paired with the mango salsa, its heaven. a respectable selection of toppings and burger options make it really fun to try and imagine which combination will be the most delicious. ostrich with avocado and pepper jack cheese is another delicious choice. and now to the cupcakes. they are big and moist and 10 times better than places like magnolia. i had the chocolate raspberry, which was as beautiful as it was tasty. dinner was about $30 for two, (2 burgers, fries, and drinks), which isnt too bad, especially for the utter deliciousness of the food. service was decent.
The Staff is Mentally Handicapped – Reading the reviews here before going, I expected a mediocre meal. I didn't see how anybody could ruin something as simple and delicious as burgers and cupcakes.
To start off, the floor of the place was covered with wood shavings for some reason. After being seated, an cranky pregnant waitress waddled over and begrudgingly took my order. After disappearing for a good half an hour, I got my food. The staff all seem to think they're too good to be working there or something, acting bored, lazy, and stupid. The food was okay (nothing special) and the cupcakes are ridiculously expensive. I paid something like 4 dollars for a cupcake half the size of my fist. Bad service, bad atmosphere (the place is across the street from a sad looking parking area), and average food. Don't bother, not even just for the novelty.
creamcheese frosting is the way to go – my sister brought me back a cupcake and it looked a bit plain but it was reallly good. just to be fair the cake itself is good but nothing special. mine was really moist but the best part way the creamcheese forsting. the cupcakes are huge too.
Mildly Retarded Staff - Good Cupcakes – A friend and I stopped in for a couple of cupcakes after eating at Manganero's down the block from this place. The waitress seemed stumped about what to do when customers arrive. The second waitress was busy "chillin'". We did eventually get coffee and a couple of cupcakes (which are like $6 each), and they were great, but the lack of motivation on the part of our stubby waitress was annoying. A visit that should have taken 10-15 minutes was strung out for way too long.
I probably will go back, because the cupcakes are great, especially after a nice hero from Manganero's but I will make it a "to go" order.
ugh, worst service ever – This place needs to clean up their act. I was fancying a cupcake one recent saturday afternoon so I walked into the establishment in question, marched right up to the counter with a smile and waited to be served. There were no less than six staff members behind the counter sporting sour apple grimaces on surly faces. The place was empty and they were all just standing around staring at the floor, which made it difficult to get noticed. I had to say, "excuse me" about 4 times to get one of the sourpusses to look up and acknowledge me. In the end, no cupcake is worth that much grief!
