Best Red Velvet in Westchester?

I've had Lulu's Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. the frosting is amazing but the cupcakes don't have the real Red Velvet taste. Any places you know that has a good Red Velvet please write. Thanks

    Not in Westchester (just a quick trek south in the Bronx - in Riverdale) is Lloyd's. Their carrot cake is legendary, but they also make a very yummy red velvet.

      Someone told me about their carrot cake being so good, so I was happy to see that they sell pieces and that you don't have to buy the whole cake. IMO it was meh. Kind of heavy. But if you can buy a piece of red velvet to try, you can make a decision on that separately.

          Yes, I know, but I didn't love their carrot cake myself. It was a bit heavy and overly sweet, IMO. I like the one I make from The Best Recipe much better.
