Dominique Ansel Bakery
Even though the city of New York is said to never sleep, you can still notice that the streets are a little emptier until around 8 a.m. in the morning. No wonder, since work in most offices usually doesn't start until around 9 a.m. In a small side street in SoHo , however, you can't really notice any of this peace and quiet. From around 7 a.m. the first New Yorkers start lining up here to wait for their morning cronuts . The French pastry chef Dominique Ansel creates a new variety of this delicacy every month, which is only offered that month. In addition to the famous Cronuts, which are only available in New York , the bakery also offers delicious breakfasts and other sweet baked goods, for which you can skip the line for the “Cronuts”. However, if you decide to take part in this cult and try a Cronuts, you should be there by 7:20 a.m. at the latest. Please remember that each guest can order a maximum of 2.
Address: 189 Spring Street (between Sullivan and Thompson) New York, NY 10012
Carlo's Bake Shop
And now the reason why this article has to be titled “New York and the surrounding area”. ;)
There are a few reasons to visit the western side of the Hudson and New Jersey, Carlo's Bake Shop might be one of them. The family business, founded in 1910, has become particularly famous for the reality show “Cake Boss” and is an absolute must for all cake lovers . Here you can get great ideas for your own creations or simply enjoy life to the fullest with a delicious piece of cake. If you would like to learn more about the history of the bakery and New Jersey at the same time, we would like to welcome you to our “Buddy’s Cake World and New Jersey” tour. You can find out more about it HERE . An absolute highlight of this excursion is the uniquely great view of the entire Manhattan skyline, which you can capture perfectly with your camera from there.
After perhaps a long walk in Central Park, you might be looking for a nice and cozy place where you can warm up and enjoy a nice cup of coffee with a tasty snack. How convenient that the bakery with the best chocolate cookies in the city is located right near Central Park. The small bakery is located on W 74th St, New York, NY.
While in Europe a roll is an absolute must for a perfect breakfast , New Yorkers prefer a bagel in the morning, which can be topped with a roll in a similar way to ours. There are savory and sweet bagels. In Midtown in the “Business District” you will find the “Ess-a-Bagel Shop” , where you can put together your own fresh and individual bagel. And don't worry if you miss out on one or two English words when you order. The ingredients are all within sight, so you can simply point to the ingredients you want. :)
