Quick stop and go for some dessert after dinner at Carmen's. I got the Elvis cake and it was pretty delicious in general, but i couldn't finish the slice because its quite heavy for my taste. But I guess it's sort of a good thing?...More

Friendly staff but I didn't like the cupcake at all... cake part was dry & I don't know what type of icing that was. I prefer buttercream... I wish I would have went to another place.

I read about the butter cake on here, and got a piece to try when I was there. It is very rich, but delicious! I also got a smores bar which was very good.

As part of the Taste of Philly Food Tour, we stopped here and got a slice of the Flying Monkey's famous butter cake, a thick, fudge-like cake the just oozes of the taste of butter. Delicious! They also bake all their products on the premises...More

I love whoopie pies but you can't get them everywhere. This bakery had several flavors and we tried the vanilla and peanut butter. I'm used to the filling being a buttercream type but these were more like a cream cheese icing taste. Different than what...More

They make some of the best whoopie pies that I have ever had. They also have a lot of specialty treat and cakes.
