Magnolia Bakery

"Magnolia Bakery"
Day 16

We had tickets for an early morning performance of the Radio City Rockettes Christmas Spectacular and needed to get up early, pack, check out, stow our luggage at the hotel and then hoof it to Radio City Music Hall.  We made good time and suddenly spied Magnolia Bakery which is just a couple doors away from Radio City.  Of course, we had to make time to go in for coffee and cupcakes!   Doesn't everyone eat cupcakes for breakfast??

My daughter Kim remembered Magnolia Bakery from when she watched "Sex and the City".  That TV show and the movie "The Devil Wears Prada", among others, featured their wonderful desserts and helped the store gain worldwide attention. 

Sure was a great start to our last day in New York!
