Little Cupcake Bakeshop

Desserts in SoHo & Chinatown

Famed for its version of the Brooklyn blackout cake, regularly called the best chocolate cake in the USA, this prim little bakeshop has plenty of other tricks up its sleeve. The four Italian brothers from Brooklyn who own the shop also ruin waistlines with homemade ice-cream flavors such as banana pudding, key lime pies and moist mini cupcakes.

A handful of casual tables mean you can sit down with a cake and coffee, and drool over the counters.
