Magnolia Bakery’s Line Gets It in Trouble


Apparently Magnolia Bakery’s long lines aren’t just a pain in the neck for those trying to squeeze past the hoards at the West Village location: If the Community Board has its way, the lines in the café area of the Upper West Side location may cost the cupcake-maker its sidewalk café license. According to the West Side Independent, CB7 is recommending that the Department of Consumer Affairs not renew the license for the enclosed café, which was intended for seating but is being used by waiting cupcake crazies. Hey, if it keeps them off the street, it’s okay by us.
