Looking for a good bakery in the West 50s
Frequently have a craving for something sweet to get through those late afternoons in the office. Can't stand those delis with cookies and cakes all pre-wrapped. Any good place near the West 50s? I have gone to Ruby and Violette for their chocolate chip cookies and the lemon ones are the best. Besides that I have been unable to find anything in the Midtown West food wasteland. Thanks for any suggestions to make the afternoons go by sweeter.

There is a bakery on the corner of 52nd (or 53rd) and 8th Ave next to a Starbucks that I can't name, but I have worked in the area forever and gotten good b&w cookies, brownies and an occasional birthday cake there. It's not landmark, but very good and steps above pre-wrapped Entemann's in other places!
Brigita -- the place that you are thinking of is D'Aiuto's. Excellent stuff, but their prices have jumped in the past year.
