Magnolia Bakery started in New York’s West Village back in 1996, and since then has opened outposts in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Dubai, Riyadh, Amman, Abu Dhabi, Manila and Doha. Now you can get your cupcake fix just blocks away from home, at Columbus Circle.
Magnolia is a cupcake favorite of celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Owen Wilson and Anna Camp — and it’s now within reach at 1794 Broadway between W58/59th Street.
The store “soft” opened on Tuesday — with an official opening date of Thursday, April 15.
“We are thrilled to be opening a new Magnolia Bakery just steps from Central Park — one of my favorite places to head to once the weather turns warm. With summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to grab your favorite desserts and bring the Magnolia Bakery experience right to the park,” Chief Baking Office, Bobbie Lloyd told I Love the Upper West Side.
If you like to take a cup of joe with your sweet treat, they’ve struck up a coffee partnership with Bluestone Lane.
Magnolia are also offering local delivery if you don’t fancy the challenge of venturing east across 8th Avenue.
“For those who prefer getting banana pudding and cupcakes delivered right to their doors, Magnolia Bakery is expanding our delivery radius to not only include the Upper West Side, but also Midtown West for the first time,” said Lloyd.
