If you are looking for some delicious sweets, then head on to City Cakes in the Chelsea area of Manhattan. They are a tiny shop located in the basement level of a residential building, which can be easily accessible from the street. Although the shop is small, they offer a large variety of cookies & cupcakes. They also offer beautiful custom cakes.
What is unique about City Cakes is their signature 1/2 pound cookies. YES, they weigh half a pound! Gigantic in size compared to the typical sized cookies you’ve eaten anywhere else; they are dense, delightful, and satiable. Our favorites so far are the killer Red Velvet cookie stuffed with sweet cream cheese and sprinkled with sugar. It definitely left us craving for more!
Another favorite was the Triple Chocolate Spice cookie which features milk chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, and white chocolate. Talk about triple threat! This cookie tasted great but when warmed in the microwave for 15 seconds, it was heavenly as it melts in the mouth. So be sure to get ready with a glass of milk. If you are a peanut butter lover then you will love the Reese’s Peanut Butter cookie as every bite is peanut buttery with the right amount of reese’s pieces to satisfy your peanut butter cravings.
Moving on to cupcakes, The Salted Caramel fantasy with caramel buttercream was not only stunning but also so sweetly delicious that will leave you saying “Wow!”. We also tried the Nutella filled Cookies-n-dream & Tiramisu cupcake which was both absolutely delicious.
