Great Eats: Martha’s Country Bakery

For those looking for the quintessential cupcake but want to avoid the hyped crowds and long lines at Magnolia Bakery or Crumbs in the city, visit Martha’s Country Bakery, a lesser-known Astoria-based dessert heaven just a few minutes away from Manhattan.

Serving American dessert classics, Martha’s feels like your grandmother’s house with its warm, cozy ambiance and sweet aroma of its famous butter cream cupcakes. Martha’s also offers fresh fruit pies, strawberry shortcakes, muffins, scones, cannolis, cappuccinos, and assorted gelato.

All baking is done on the premises, which features an open kitchen, inviting visitors to watch the pastry chefs in action. With homemade wall signs declaring, “Stressed Spelled Backwards is Desserts” and “A Balanced Diet is a Cookie in Each Hand,” how could you resist?

Martha’s Country Bakery is located at 36-21 Ditmars Blvd., Astoria, NY (718.544.0088)

Nearest Transit: N,W subway lines to Ditmars Blvd.
