New York caters to the sweet tooth, offering several all-American desserts that must be tried before leaving the city. The first place to go is the Magnolia Bakery at 401 Bleecker Street. All their desserts are hand-made, and the décor inside is a must-see in itself, which takes you back to the 1950s. Try their delicious cupcakes, topped with all sorts of flavours, waffles and pumpkin pie. You may recognise this place, as it was frequently used as the backdrop in Sex and the City, putting this little bakery on the New York map. However, its fame has in no way lowered the quality of its tasty sweet treats.
