prune danish

  • j

Where's a good place to get a decent prune danish? Preferably in Manhattan, but elsewhere in the city is fine.

  1. My favorite prune danish is in Riverdale, Bronx, at Mothers Bake Shop.

    I have been eating them for 30 years - still a great treat when I ride over that way.

          Are they in Manhattan or the outer boroughs?

        2. Andre's Hungarian Bakery on Queens Blvd down the block from Knish Nosh in Forest Hills, They also make awesome cheese danish

          1. When fresh, the prune danish from the Hot & Crusty chain, with several shops in Manhattan, are surprisingly good.
