New York is a city made famous by its food. Home to a diverse mix of cultures, the Big Apple is filled with all manner of culinary delights, from macaroni cheese to matzo ball soup. However, it’s the baked goods which really get the taste buds tingling. After all, what could beat a freshly baked croissant or a gooey-in-the-middle chocolate chip cookie? We've composed a list of New York’s best bakeries so that, no matter where you are in the city, you’ll never be far from deliciousness.
Got a hankering for cinnamon brioche? How about a slice of pumpkin ginger spice bread? Well, you’re in luck. The Levain Bakery specializes in mouth-watering treats, each morsel utterly divine. Their cookies in particular are amazing; crunchy on the outside and gooey in the middle, a cookie dough lover’s idea of heaven. We recommend the dark chocolate peanut butter chip cookie, which is equal measures sweet and savory; although anything you order is sure to be a winner.
Whether you’re craving something sweet or savory, Momofouku is at your service. From pretzel milk to pumpkin pie cake, this trendy and exciting bakery serves all manner of delicious baked goods with unusual twists. Momofuku has become so popular that they now offer baking classes and sell their own cook book, so you can learn how to make some of their famous dishes, like blueberry and cream cookies. Oh, and there’s good news: even if you aren’t in New York you can still enjoy Momofuku’s goodies as they ship internationally!
Milk & Cookies Bakery
Your quest for the perfect cookie ends here. The Milk & Cookies Bakery specializes in baking cookies, employing a diverse range of fillings and toppings which sets them apart from all other cookies. After all, how many other bakeries serve bacon cookies? The Milk & Cookies is also proud to use only the finest ingredients to create their masterpieces, although, as they say, the proof is in the pudding.
Situated in the heart of Brooklyn, Scratchbread excels in baking exquisite breads, from focaccia with rosemary, sea salt and chilli to bourbon wheat with pecans. Everything is made with love, with the shop’s bread artisans only using superior ingredients to produce each loaf. Scratchbread also serves a variety of pastry goods and savory foods (the kale ceasar salad is particularly delicious and is veggie-friendly), along with a range of sauces which are always a hit with customers.
If you thought sliced bread was innovative, meet the dinkie. A delicious cross between a cake and pancake, dinkies fit into the palm of your hand and come with a vast variety of fillings and toppings, both savory and sweet. Chow down on a PB&J dinkie or sink your teeth into a mozzarella dinkie – whatever flavor you fancy, we doubt you’ll be disappointed. You can also design your own dinkie, with countless toppings and sauces to choose from, such as marshmallows and vanilla wafers. Dinkies also serves a selection of other dishes, from healthy salads to indulgent meatball subs, which you’ll be able to wash down with a tall glass of homemade lemonade.
