great bakeries in East Village/StyTown area
looking for great bakeries in East Village/Sty-Town area. Any great brownies/chocolate chip cookies? Other goodies too. Thanks!
For chocolate chip cookies, Birdbath on 1st Ave, the City Bakery offshoot, has excellent ones.
For pastries, Black Hound.
For bread, Panya on 9th St or Cafe Zaiya on Cooper Sq are sadly the best after so many bakeries in the EV have closed. You can get some Balthazar loaves at East Village cheese shop. And good challah at Moishe.
For bagels, Ess-A-Bagel on 1st near 19th would be my go-to.
I'm sure I'm missing something...
try Tompkins Square bakery, on the north side of Tompkins Square park--great chocolate chip coconut cookies, almond croissants (not traditional french croissants at all, but tasty)
I second Tompkins Square bakery! The owner, Matt, is usually there and really friendly. Awesome peanutbutter cookies too.
