PRICE: Reasonable
RATING: Good.
DIRECTIONS: 456 to 86th St
RESERVATIONS: It’s a bakery!  You don’t need them.
MUST GET:

Went here in search of hot cross buns (who knew this was more than just a song??), they sell out quick which is a good sign that it’s a good bakery. So instead of getting hot cross buns, I got myself a coconut cherry muffin. Delicious. I didn’t think the pairing would go that well together, but it was a pleasant surprise. It’s too far for me to ever come back here again unless I just happen to be in the area, but if you or someone you know lives in this hood, give it a try. I would get their cupcakes though; everyone who was in front of me in line got at least half a dozen cupcakes, but 9AM is a bit too early for me to fill up on a sugar high.

Got some cupcakes here for Hagen’s birthday. Amazing. Their coconut cupcake is the best one I have ever had. Yummmmmmm.

They have specialty frostings such as: the elvis (peanut butter + banana), espresso, grapefruit + ginger, and honey cinnamon.  All the frostings can be found on their vanilla, chocolate, or banana cupcakes.
