Our favorite bakery in NYC is in Williamsburg. The bakers will help you dressed up with their blue overalls (50ies inspired...)
The baguettes are to die for, the apple cider zucchini cake is incredible as well as the brioche. The croissants are very small maybe a little too much.
If you want to have lunch, they also serve salads and sandwiches. You can as well get a nice cup of coffee, americano, cappuccino...
And if you are lucky enough to find their olive bread or the ficelles just BUY THEM !
The opened a second location in Greenpoint.
