They had us at hello, those dreamy, creamy cupcakes. (Us and every other Chicagoan with taste buds.) This sweet-as-can-be little bakeshop may have cornered the local market with its simple little chocolate and yellow cakes slathered in a colorful array of buttercreams, but there’s much more to salivate over here. We like the puddings (butterscotch, chocolate, banana with Nilla wafers), the crispy, big-as-your-head cookies, the seasonal fruit crisps, the whoopie pies. We haven’t found a dud here yet.

Oh my god, this spot is the most dangerous in Chicago. Everything is amazing, but you must have a super sweet tooth to appreciate it. I highly recommend the frosted molasses cookie when it's available. I'm about to go leave and buy one right now. 


This establishment has long been on my wish list to visit. And they did NOT disappoint. I got multiple cupcakes and frosted sugar cookies and they were moist, sweet and delectable. They were also the same the next day. Unbelievable. I have gone here again because they have such a great variety and the shop itself is cute too - tucked away in Lincoln Park around the corner from Pequod's Pizza. 

Everything is delicious here. Repeat: EVERYTHING. I usually opt for their flourless chocolate cake, which I would normally pass on because the texture can sometimes be unappealing, but they do some sort of wizardry here that gives it an almost mousse-like quality and it is amazing. Other stand outs are their lemon bars, any of the cheesecake options, and and the turtle brownie. Come hungry, friends!


I am a 30 year old man and every time I go to Sweet Mandy B's I become a child and pig out! The store and confections are so bright and colorful there is no way I can resist. My favorite is the giant frosted sugar cookies, I have to get those....always. They also have amazing pieces of cake ready to go. I love to come here when I'm feeling down, because there is no way I'm leaving this place sad. The staff is friendly and often have to help me narrow down my order. I love this place and all their amazing sweets!
