Posted on Monday that Frozen Peaks had closed at Broadway & 95th. Perhaps winter is a bad time to sell frozen yogurt, because Yapple (2056 Broadway, between 70th & 71st) has also recently shuttered.
Nice event tomorrow (Friday, 10/5) at UWS kids/gifts boutique Stoopher & Boots (385 Amsterdam, between 78th & 79th). Authors Carrie and Sheryl Berk (Carrie is 9) will be signing copies of their books from The Cupcake Club series while parents and kids can much on actual cupcakes (from DC Cupcakes).
If you live in the southern part of the Upper West Side and are jealous of the Baked By Melissa that opened at 2325 Broadway (between 84th & 85th) in October, you can now rest easy — you’re getting one a bit closer to home.
Posted on Monday that the Upper West Side will be getting a 24-hour cupcake “ATM” later this year. Judging by the response from readers, this thing is going to be an uber-success. One of these machines is up-and-running in Los Angeles and there’s already video of it in action.
Posted back in October that Irving Farm Coffee Company was opening an outpost on the Upper West Side. Things have been quiet since then, but they’ve started to heat up recently — the tell-tale “Coming Soon” signage is now hanging outside their future home at 224 West 79th (between Broadway & Amsterdam).
UPDATE 3/7: Video Of The Cupcake “ATM” In Action It was only a matter of time before something like this showed up in “the city that never sleeps”: The Upper West Side is slated to receive its very own 24-hour cupcake “ATM” later this year.
UPDATE 6/12/12: Rigoletto Pizzeria is relocating to this space Posted last week that Red Velvet Bakery (141 W. 72) was closed for “renovations,” but speculated that it might be more than that. Looks like that’s the case — the store is now closed with multiple “For Rent” signs in the window. Apparently there was more [...]
The weather may be lousy today, but at least there’s a new cupcake option in the neighborhood. MUW readers Kevin and Jillian (photo by Kevin) wrote in to say the Baked By Melissa first mentioned in August officially opened for business today. It’s located at 2325 Broadway (between 84th & 85th), in the space previously [...]
Even. More. Cupcakes. On Monday there was news that a new Crumbs Bake Shop is opening on Broadway, near 109th. Now there’s a report of another one opening about 15 blocks south.
If you happen to think the Upper West Side doesn’t have enough cupcake options, you’ll be pleased to know we’re getting one more. Crain’s reports that Baked By Melissa has just signed a 10-year lease at 2325 Broadway (between 84th & 85th). Thanks to MUW reader Christina for the link.
