Not unlike pizza, or bagels, the best cupcake in New York City is a hotly debated topic. Many people will say that Magnolia Bakery is the best, or Butter Lane, but I stand by Billy’s Bakery. I used to live down the block from Billy’s and to say I visited often would be an understatement 🙂
Billy’s Bakery is unique, colorful and has a retro vibe. They serve up a variety of sweet treats, including, ice box cakes, cookies, lemon bars and peanut butter pie. Also, Billy’s is open until Midnight! How New York is that?!
My favorite cupcakes from Billy’s are their carrot cake cupcake with cream cheese frosting, red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting, double chocolate cupcake and banana nutella cupcake. I’ve tried a lot of cupcakes over the years and I’ve never been disappointed by Billy’s. Added bonus, unlike some of the other trendy bakeries, Billy’s very rarely has a line.
