I ordered my son's first birthday from this location in 2006. It was the best tasting and freshest cake I have ever had, the buttercream frosting and the strawberry filling was all the rave at my son's party everyone complimented the cake and asked me where I got it. It was a little over priced but I think it is worth it. The customer service needs a little work, the girls there rush customers into their order. Don't know about the other bad reviews here, if it tasted stale I would have returned a chunk of it back to the bakery and requested some money be returned. For the price paid..it should be fresh and moist.
If you want simple ice cream done right, Cones is the place for you. Sure, they'll venture out a little and provide flavors such as corn and peanut butter caramel, but they do basic well. Together my friend and I had the tiramisu, honey cinnamon, dark chocolate, and vanilla chocolate chip. The first three were all really good, that we couldn't really choose a favorite. I wish the chocolate chips were blended in better as it only really tasted like vanilla - just a minor complaint though. You won't get friendly, full of smiles employees here, but they are generous by not limiting the amount of samples.
Everyone told us as we are planning our trip to New York that we had to go here. We were warned about long lines. We ended up not really waiting very long even though it looked like we would. The man working the front desk was rather rude. He didn't seem to really like his job. I tried the frozen hot chocolate. It was pretty good. The rest of my family got different desserts. Everyone enjoyed what they ate but didn't think there was anything extra special to it.... Especially for what it cost! We've been there and done that. But probably wouldn't go back when we return to New York!
