East Village Bakery
I recently moved into Stuyesant Town and I looking for a good bakery in the general vicinity. I am thinking about a place where I can stop by and grab a loaf of bread on the way home from work. Pasteries or sweet treats are not necessary.
Many thanks for your help.
There are some jewish bakeries on 2nd avenue like Moishe's bake shop. I've never been in though. There are also some japanese bakeries there too. Panya and cafe zaiya.
There is an excellent bakery called Birdbath, on 1st Avenue btwn 13 & 14. It's run by the folks at City Bakery and the croissants are excellent!
Moishe's on 2nd Avenue between 6th & 7th has good cookies and strudel and excellent bread. I think their bagels aren't so great though, but David's Bagel on 1st Avenue between 13th & 14th have terrific bagels.
There's a pretty good Greek-esque bakery on Rivington and Clinton or thereabouts. Great bread and it seemed to be flying out the door.
I actually don't believe that Veniero's does bread, although I agree that their pastries are wonderful. My wedding cake was from Veniero's, and it made everyone very happy. I enjoy their Italian cheesecake as well. As long as we're talking bakery sweets, though, let me add another great East Village Italian cafe - De Robertis. http://derobertiscaffe.com/

birdbath is my new favorite in the east vill....also like blackhound the queen d cake there is to die for, moishes for babka, challah and all that yummy goodness, there is this fabulous banana cookie at this bakery around the corner from venieros (which is not my favorite place for sweets) its a small hole in the wall, but they make this cookie with a fresh banana nestled atop a pate sucree with ganache dipped in a hard shell of chocolate... addictive! i also like the breads and croissants at
