Cake Boss Cafe at the Discovery Times Square

When I was in the city in August for the US Open tennis tournament, I had the chance to finally check out the Cake Boss Cafe at the Discovery Times Square.  
I was really liking the elevator design........... 
You cannot get lost finding the place as plenty of signs.....and I love signs with cannoli's on them!!  
The space is small but they have quite a few items and an area for seating as well  
Decor is very simple, I love the photos on the walls......... 
the photo of Buddy covered in flour is one of my favorites........a really great concept  
If this one could fit in my camera bag, it would have been going home with me......okay onto the desserts..... 
these looked quite good, but small, for $10.00 each .......... 
the lobster tails were a good size and price of $4.00 was fair I thought 
this cake was gorgeous but again for $35.00 I think a bit on the very pricey side......... 
Mousse layer cake would probably be very tasty ....... 
Another style of Fondant Cake ......the pieces in the back look very good, that fudge middle would probably be very over-the-top but again, I think a bit high of a price tag for such a small cake  
cuppies were there of course, looking very pretty  
For $22.00, you can take Buddy home with you !! These were very cute!!  
the main attraction....the cannoli.....I have to say the lady behind the counter was very nice, took them out for me to photograph. I told her I was doing a write up for my blog and she had no problem with me taking the photos, thought I would have had more of a problem here.  
They were pretty wonderful. Shell was crisp, filling was thick with chocolate chips in and the way a cannoli should be. Would I recommend the place? Sure. It is expensive? Sure. But it is New York City and The Cake Boss so I can understand. I am not sure how many of those little cakes people will buy but I would buy a piece to try with a cup of coffee. I think it will do very well here and maybe if so, Buddy will look into something a little bigger in the city in it's own storefront.

Fantastic place. And the cake is the best part. Wow! Can't believe he has his own store. Must visit next time.

BTW, Thank you for the Deborah Lippmann. They are beautiful.

Looks very yummy, but pricey indeed. How much did the cupcakes cost?

Sorry Vanessa, didn't mean to hurt the healthy eating for 2012 but no calories on the blog!! yay!!

Welcome Ola ! Glad to have you join us !!

Danielle, I didn't see the price of the cuppies but I think they were about $4 from what I could read in my photos.

Soho Accessories, the bakery in NJ is so busy and long lines, I would prefer to go here although not as much selection.

Hi Kristin and Happy New Year !!
