Billy's Bakery in New York City provides its customers classic American baked goods in a warm, friendly atmosphere. The 1940s-style stores fill with the smell of baking cupcakes every morning, bringing forth waves of nostalgia for Grandma's kitchen. But Grandma's never baked like this before — each classic cupcake is topped with a memorable swirl of frosting, gracefully piped with a hollow center. If you ever get the chance to stop by any of its three locations, go for a Banana Nutella Cupcake. — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012

  • It all began with two friends from business school, a sweet tooth, and a dream.
  • Blows Magnolia out of the water, and the staff is wayyyyyy nicer. The banana cake is the best ever

  • Good cupcakes, but cloyingly sweet. You're probably going to need a black coffee. Only get one cupcake. No possible way you're going to need more than that. You can even share with 2 or 3 people.
  • Go within an hour of closing and ask for a slice of whatever it looks like they have to most left of. You will leave with 1/4 of a cake as your 'slice'
