Craving sweets? Lucky for you, NYC has a bakery on almost every street! From loaves of bread to cheesecakes to crazy cupcakes, you can find anything to satisfy that sweet tooth. Here is a list of some of the bakeries in NYC that I believe are a must try.

Magnolia Bakery

Magnolia is one of the most heard of bakeries in NYC. Their world famous banana pudding is a must try, as well as their beautifully decorated cupcakes. Of course they sell several other sweet desserts as well for pick up, delivery, or shipping!

Levain Bakery

Cookies anyone? Levain has been honored with the title of “New York City’s Most Famous Cookies,” and trust me, it’s true. Whether you stop in for a single cookie, need a box of cookies for a gift, or want to try an assortment of flavors with a friend, Levain has it all. Check them out at one of their 6 locations in the city.

Orwashers Bakery

If sweets are not your thing and you are looking for more artisan baked goods, Orwashers is the place for you.
