Luncheon Desserts/Sweets

I am charged with ordering "desserts" (interpreted broadly as any type of sweets) for lunches for my office, and would welcome any and all suggestions. It's for approximately fifty people. Location (not a problem to have someone pick it up in the general Manhattan-Brooklyn area) and cost are generally not an issue. Recently we've had Beard Papa's, Financier, Il Laboratorio del Gelato, Little Pie Company, Crumbs and My Favorite Dessert Company.

So please share any and all of your favorite dessert/sweets places.

      I have actually never heard of Arte - just looked at their website, I can't wait to sampe their food. Thank you.

    2. Buttercup Bakeshop, Dishes' petit fours, Dessert Delivery, Milk and Cookies Bakery

        Thank you for the suggestions...we often get Dishes as the main course, so we'll have to try the petit fours next time.

          Great suggestion - didn't think about Levains and their to-die-for cookies.

        2. Alice's tea cup for scones and sweets. Grom for gelato. Milk and Cookies for cookies. Donut plant or koyofuku for something a little different. Billy's Bakery for cookies and cupcakes and that amazing banana cake.

          1. I would not recommend My Favorite Dessert Company...Not very good...
