Little Cupcake Bakeshop: Some of NYC's Best Baked Goods, Right in the Heart of Nolita 

SSPNY Heads to the Heart of Nolita for Some of NYC's Best Baked Goods at the Little Cupcake Bakeshop!

SSPNY heads to their newest neighborhood in the Stone Street Properties family in Nolita to check out first-rate bakery the Little Cupcake Bakeshop on the corner of Prince and Mott, in an area great for living, eating, shopping, and being on the go!

Every great New York City neighborhood deserves a great bakery. It can be fancy and French, old-school Italian, older-school Kosher, artisanal and Brooklyn-y, vegan and hipster, bread-centric or pie-based... whatever. As long as you don't have to travel too far to get fresh-baked goodies, made with skill and love, for a sweet snack or dessert for a crowd, then you are golden, my friends. The newest neighborhood in the Stone Street Properties family is Nolita, which is no question an excellent place to live for many reasons (food, shopping, transportation, location, culture, prettiness, all of it), including, of course, the presence of a first-rate bakery, the Little Cupcake Bakeshop.

SSPNY heads to the Little Cupcake Bakeshop alongside crowds of tourists and teenagers, to check out a menu that features a variety of cupcakes at this local Nolita neighborhood treasure-- using all locally sourced ingredients and 100% wind power to practice super energy-efficient daily operations, and with it's original location in Bay Ridge Brooklyn being declared the worlds first carbon neutral bakery!

The Little Cupcake Bakeshop, right in the heart of Nolita on Prince and Mott, is cute (almost too cute?), the tables are always crowded with tourists and teenagers, and, of course, the menu features many varieties of that too-often-too-silly treat, the cupcake. Nolita locals, don't let any of that discourage you! The Little Cupcake Bakeshop is a true neighborhood treasure, serving outstanding cakes (both cup- and layer-) baked daily on-site, in small batches, using locally sourced ingredients. And even the shop itself was constructed with care, using salvaged, recycled, or sustainable materials and employs the most energy-efficient practices available (100% wind power!) in its daily operation. In fact, the first Little Cupcake Bakeshop, in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, was declared to be the world's first carbon neutral bakery.

SSPNY claims that the menu at Little Cupcake's is among the top three or four cupcakes in town.. with cupcakes almost all available in layer cake format. The two cupcakes pictured are the chocolate bomb Brooklyn Blackout and the sticky Peanut Butter and Jelly. Aside from those are other favorites the Coconut Cloud, the Southern Red Velvet, and the meringue-y Black and White, all made with the same great moist consistency and to-die-for flavor.

All of which is fantastic for the city and the planet, and an inspiration for other small business owners, but unless the goodies are, in fact, GOOD, well... in this town you won't be around long enough to make a difference. Fortunately, the Little Cupcake Bakeshop is good. Better than good. In fact, these little beauties are easily among the top three or four cupcakes in town. I've had just about every flavor on the Little Cupcake menu--almost all of which are also available in layer cake format, which, if it were MY birthday, I would love, thanks for asking--and everything has always been wonderful. The chocolate bomb Brooklyn Blackout. The sticky Peanut Butter and Jelly. The Coconut Cloud, the Southern Red Velvet, the meringue-y Black and White: everything is always moist, the flavors honestly earned, the staffers friendly and fun, the coffee decent... it's always a pleasure, Little Cupcake. See you soon.

SSPNY even tries out the cheesecake at Little Cupcake Bakery in Nolita, as one of a handful of other options aside from cupcakes to enjoy such as pies, puddings, cookies, and rice-krispie treats
