UWS Cupcake Controversy!

New, 6 comments

The Upper West Side's Community Board 7 is taking aim at a real neighborhood menace: cupcake addicts. The Magnolia Bakery on Columbus Avenue is so popular that the enclosed sidewalk café area is being used to line up tweekers waiting to order. Since the board approved the café area under the condition that it contain tables and chairs, "The cafe thus violates every reasonable spatial requirement for a cafe (despite being attractively designed and well managed)." CB7 voted against renewing Magnolia's café license, threatening to force customers to wait in the cold. [Westside Independent]
