You can smell the sugar as soon as you walk in the door, LOL! The cupcakes are what they're known for, but I like to buy my cakes here for special occasions. After doing some comparison shopping at other boutique bakeries around town, I've found you can get a nice sized cake for a pretty decent price. The red velvet is probably my favorite. I always grab a banana pudding for later :)

not NY but still yummy

i'm not sure why all the haters here. yah, it's not as good as the magnolia bakery in nyc, but it's still pretty damn good. my fav is the banana pudding and the cheesecake is really good. of course i need to eat a cupcake every time i go too. there was one spice type of cupcake i didn't like but the rest of the stuff is yummy. how can people dis on cupcakes man??

Desserts are yuckie but the coffee is good.

The first time I walked in to Magnolia's was an experience. I ordered a cold coffee drink, it was good coffee. I also ordered the banana pudding, It was also good.

The next time around I had a mini pudding pie, it was yummy too.

Then I had the same thing on another occasion and it was gross! We also got a piece of cake and the frosting was yucky!

A friend told me that she bought a cupcake and was very disappointing, the frosting taste like Crisco oil.

But, the coffee is good!



The Best in Los Angeles

I have tried the most well known famous cupcake "joints" in town and they are just filled with a sack of C&H sugar with food coloring. This bakery takes the time to make their cupcakes in small batches with lots of love. My favorite is the red velet! They are worth the drive and parking has never been a problem for me. I will drive around until a spot opens up because these are the only cupcakes I ever want to eat or give away as a gift. They are simple, fresh and beautifully presented. I always feel great after having one of their cupcakes and it always brightens my day or night!!!

Waste of my 1 a week desert

I was excited to have my 1 treat for the week..I tried Magnolia and was totally disappointed.I have had better from a grocery store...I dont always eat cupcakes ..But when I do, it wont be Magnolia.
Try Susiecakes, or Sprink;es...The Best !!

VERY mediocre

What were you thinking from a business perspective? Parking is a disrace. Good job Magnolia management and marketing department...NOT!

Cupcakes (red velvet, choc, vanilla) were all nothing special. Certainly nothing to rave about.

Does LA really need another cupcake joint? Really?!! NO.

Joans on Third is just down the street - Go there anyday of the week over magnolia.

Final note: Magnolia will NOT last in LA more than 12 months.
