Dessert Walking Tour in New York City: Cupcakes, Cookies and Gelato

Cupcakes on the tour

Meet at Union Square in the afternoon and follow your expert foodie guide on a walking tour through beautiful Greenwich Village in Lower Manhattan. Head first to Baked by Melissa, whose signature tie-dye cupcake is a favorite among locals.

After your first tasting here, walk to Crumbs Bake Shop, which makes more than 50 delicious varieties of cupcakes daily, including a gourmet chocolate cupcake. Delight in an indulgent sample before heading to Amorino, a dessert shop that actually specializes in gelato, but also serves decadent chocolates, creamy milkshakes and fresh-baked waffles.

Then, continue to Molly’s Cupcakes, where you’ll design your very own cupcake! Pick a cake flavor, choose a frosting and then dress it up with tasty toppings. Your customized cupcake will be made right in front of you.

Afterward, visit Milk & Cookies, one of West Village’s cutest bakeries. You can try one of their cupcakes or one of their signature cookies instead.

No cupcake tour would be complete without a trip to one of the most famous bakeries in NYC, Magnolia Bakery. Savor their red velvet cupcake – a delicious way to end your tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

We had a great time! Jessie was a fantastic tour guide. The dessert tastings were amazing. Didn't know we would learn so much about the area while we walked from bakery to bakery!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Jessi was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this tour. Obviously the food was fantastic!! And there was actually more than you could eat - luckily we were able to get boxes/bags for samples we couldn't finish!! We thoroughly enjoyed all of the neighborhood information that was shared along the way - and boy did we cover a lot of ground! It was really awesome that the tour was so much more than just the food.

NOTE: Crumbs is no longer in business and was replaced with a visit to Bisous Ciao macarons!!
