Delicious Desserts on the Upper West Side

Is there a more comforting word in the English language? Dessert is what you crave, and luckily there are some delicious desserts on the Upper West Side just waiting for your aggressive consumption. You always say you’ll just have a bite, then you finish the whole thing. It’s the sweet or savory end to a good day or a good meal, and the pick-me-up when your day or meal isn’t quite as good.

The Upper West Side is chockfull (no pun intended) of places to satisfy your dessert fix. But gone are the days where just going for a scoop of ice cream is doing it justice. I’ll concede up front, I’m a lover of rich desserts, and not everyone has the same palate. That being said, there are several options that hit the spot without emptying your wallet if you’re looking for some yummy desserts on the Upper West Side.

We gave ice cream shops their own article. 

Best Desserts on the Upper West Side

Magnolia Bakery

200 Columbus Ave

Maybe not the most offbeat choice, the place is packed and everyone knows what they make. But that’s for good reason. The cupcakes are outrageously moist, and the buttercream frosting is smooth and delicious. Eat the cupcake with cake and frosting together in one big bite, or lick the frosting then devour the cupcake. Either way you can’t go wrong. Magnolia is even better known for banana pudding, sold in cups for people and in tubs for parties. There are other options like pies and brownies, but stick to the classics.
