AWL’s pretty raspberry lemonade cupcake!
My totally awesome chocolate turtle cupcake. Oh my gosh, when I bit into this, it was like I died and went to heaven. I don’t think I’ll ever get over the fluffy, cloud-like frosting that so far, I’ve only found at Robicelli’s. Mmmmmmmmm. Amazing.
I don’t think Keywee is quite as good as Layla (any Cupcakes Take the Cake readers will recognize the reference!), so I kept mine in the upside down cup to protect it. Honestly, she didn’t even really try to sniff the cup. I think she KNEW. 😉
“Rawr! Give me cupcake!”
“I will be all EMO and hope getting this shot encourages you to give me CUPCAKE.” (It didn’t. Dogs shouldn’t eat people food, imo, and definitely should not be eating chocolate, which is toxic to most dogs.)
If you’ve been reading my blog for more than a minute, I’m surprised you haven’t yet gone. They recently added a couple of tables and stools to one side, creating a cafe area for those of you locals to sit and eat and enjoy their wonderful prepared-foods! Go and enjoy!

(I’m so behind in posting, that I wrote the above, then visited Robicelli’s two more times before it got posted. So now you get tons of food porn.)
Allison’s amazing butternut squash soup
Wonderful spread of cheeses – I forgot the name, dammit, but the one on the bottom was incredible!!! Completely spreadable and delicious!
Lamb chops crusted in pinenuts… tender and another hit
Roasted brussels sprouts, eggplant, broccoli salads. All very good.
Sicilian egg salad sandwiches… I stupidly forgot to try these but they sound super tasty
Pork belly BLT… I did NOT forget to try these, and they were outta this world
Still warm apple cider donut – $1.50
A little less cakey than I prefer but still incredible.
Bananas Foster cupcake… mm, mm good – $2.50
I can’t get over how creative this is… banana split cupcake – $3 – banana cupcake topped with vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate frostings, when you buy it, they ask you if you want “the works” then top it with whipped cream, crushed cookies (not shown on this one), and a maraschino cherry. I’m going to assume it was good, because after I snapped a photo, my boyfriend inhaled one, then bought two more to take home. Yeah, that’s an endorsement from him if ever I’ve heard one 🙂
Honestly, if you read my blog ever, you should already know how much I adore Robicelli’s. It’s in Bay Ridge, on the exact opposite end of the train from me, and yet I’ve been there, hmmm, maybe 6 times in 6 months? THAT’S A LOT FOR ME. I just don’t go to Brooklyn! Ringing endorsement. If you haven’t been already, you are seriously missing out.
And look – there’s even a dinner special currently going on for $9.99 – so for those who want to try a bit of everything, here’s a way to do it without breaking the bank. You’ll thank me later because everything is delicious.
Happy One Year Anniversary to Robicelli’s, and here’s to many more!
The above pictures (up to the donut) are from the one year anniversary celebration at Robicelli’s, to which I was invited. The donut & cupcake photos are from the day of the 3rd Avenue Festival in Bay Ridge, to which I was invited by the Robicellis such that I could guest-judge their sandwich competition. Competition was fierce – and delicious – but ultimately, the best sandwich won out – a delicious concoction from Sarah of The Main Ingredient, and I urge you to go and get one yourself, as it’s now on the menu for the next year.
