Dessert for a Group on a Sunday Night


Looking for someplace to have dessert (basically cupcakes) that can accomodate 15 people and stays open late (until midnight at least) on a Sunday.

Cafe Lalo is an option but I am looking for others. Location is not a concern so any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you.

  1. We often go to L'Express or French Roast for late night dessert. They are open 24/7 but I do not remember cupcakes on the menu.

      Thank you for your suggestions. Although they look nice they are not quite what we are looking for.

        I've got it:
        Sugar and Plumm on the UWS. Open until 11:30 on Friday and Saturday.
        Till 10 on Sundays. I know that is not midnight.
        Serendipity on the UES is open until midnight but I don't see cupcakes among the many desserts.
        Balthazar is open until midnight but alas no cupcakes.
        If all else fails Fairway is open until 1 AM!!

          LOL! I hope it doesn't come to Fairway :)

          Sugar and Plumm looks good. If we can alter our plans a bit and go earlier that is definitely in the running.

          Thank you :)

    2. Ivy Bakery closes at 11pm.

      Crumbs closes later but I doubt you'll find one with 15 seats. Maybe someone else can make a suggestion.

      The Italian bakeries stay open late (Veniero's, Rocco, Bruno) but I am not sure you'll get 15 seats together (maybe call ahead?) and they are not known for their cupcakes.

      If it were a Friday or Saturday you would have way more luck.

        Ivy looks like another good option.

        I thought about Crumbs but like you said, seating is a problem.

        I would be perfectly happy going for Italian pastries but that is not what the birthday girl has requested.

        Unfortunately it has to be on Sunday.

        Thank you :)
