This bakery is your new obsession. You’ve heard of the cronut BUT HAVE YOU HEARD OF A CRUFFIN?! They have a black forest croissant-muffin filled with dark chocolate creme, dark cherry jelly, and topped with some white chocolate goodness. They also have a Ferrero Rocher croissant with hazelnut praline, dark chocolate ganache and torched meringue. Their menu is always changing but you cannot go wrong with anything you order. The best part? (As if it gets better) It’s an Instagram goldmine!
Though Doughnut Plant may not have much variety when it comes to types of pastries, they do offer plenty of variety when it comes to tasty flavor combos and types of doughnuts. The first thing you have to decide when you walk in is – do you want a cake doughnut or a classic yeast doughnut? From there you have to decide if you want creme filling, PB&J filling, carrot cake, matcha, red velvet… so many yummy choices!!!
Now, Levain does offer lots of different tasty treats. BUT they are famously known for their gigantic, gooey, THICK, packed to the brim cookies. These cookies are a meal and yes, you will need milk. From dark chocolate peanut butter to classic oatmeal raisin, these cookies are a NY staple.
Dominique Ansel is arguably the most Instagram famous bakery in NYC. And with good reason. Not only are their products picture perfect, but they are DELICIOUS. A favorite of ours is their hot chocolate. Imagine the most indulgent, rich, chocolatey, creamy, melted chocolate on earth. Now imagine it with an adorable flower shaped marshmallow on top that opens when dropped in your cup. Its heavenly.
Technically they are a bar, but their sweet treats are damn good. Based in Brooklyn, this female owned and operated establishment serves delicious cocktails and indulgent desserts. Pretty much the best combo. Aside from the booze, they are known for their sassy cakes that read “YASS Queen” or “Bitches Love Sprinkles”.
