It was an unusual aura that was generated from this entrance, which made me give it a try before friends gathering at a nearby restaurant. I got a slice of plain cheesecake and a few micro marble cupcakes for my kids and everything tasted good. At the time of my visit just before 6pm on a weekday, there were only... More

I always get my birthday cakes here. I have for years and it never fails. It's always a cute place to have a cup of coffee and a cupcake. The best you will EVER have!

Never have I ever had such a delicious cake as Two Little Red Hens' Brooklyn Blackout Cake. Rich beyond belief. An ideal gift to bring to a dinner party. Tiny little spot with good coffee, good cakes and other sweet treats

I stopped by Two Little Red Hens in awe of all the hen related stuff on display -- there are many more than two that is for sure. After spending some time wondering about all the arts and crafts on display, I had a cup of very good coffee and a piece of excellent cherry pie. Service was fast, efficient... More

Two Little Red Hens has the best cupcakes hands down! The carrot cake & Banana are my favorites! The scones, cakes and cheesecake are also delicious! I make sure to stop in every time I'm in the city. I typically buy a few extra as they freeze very well!

A friend picked up a few slices of their cheese cake, it was delicious! The cupcakes are also supposed to be delicious, but with so many cupcake stores near where she lives, Buddette usually will not waste calories on those.

This place is amazing. Large cupcakes are $3 and they are divine. Marble, Key Lime, Banana, Brooklyn Blackout and Carrot are just some of my favorites. Cupcakes are moist and incredibly tasty. The cakes are great too but a little expensive. Very tiny store and the wait time usually runs around 20 minutes because it's usually packed. But worth the... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
