Dessert Spot or Bakery Suggestions

Hey fellow 'hounders,
I would like to know where are some great spots for dessert (it can be a bakery that has seating also)? The location can be within the Villages, Union Square, Flatiron, and up to Curry Hill (where my friend lives). The other requirement is that it has to be toward the moderate-inexpensive side.

Thanks in advance.

    1. I've see some negative posts about Veniero's (11th & 1st) but I have loved it since I was a kid. It is an Italian bakery with seating and they don't try to rush you out. I always stopped there after a 2nd Avenue Deli night (I know, it closed) even if I didn't have room for dessert.

      1. tisserie on union square. a one stop shop for all your bakery needs! dont miss it!!!!

          What do you like there? I've tried the chocolate croissant and the little tiger eyes and didn't love either. Too heavy and buttery (IMO). But lots of people rave about the place so I'd like to try it again. I just need a little guidance.

        2. I think Veniero's is the best around. It;s a great price for the treats they have. It's extremely popular and their cannolli's are amazing.

          1. I love the little cookies with the red jelly, too. Mmmm... I think I'm going to have to make a pit stop on the way home!
