Big Booty Bakery

Has anyone else been to Big Booty Bakery on 23rd street between 7th and 8th? I walk past it a lot and finally went in for the first time about a week ago. So far I've had a croissant, a cheese roll, and brought home a loaf of whole grain bread - all *delicious* (though I suspect that may be because they add what tastes like about a pound of butter to each bite). Has anyone tried their soups or sandwiches, and are they as tasty as the baked goods?

      I had some pastries from Big Booty when they first opened and they more than passed muster with Colombian friends. I remember something that was stuffed with dulce de leche that was delicious. I would definitely be interested in hearing about the sandwiches...

        Their cheese rock is my absolute favorite snack, but I also find their sandwiches to be quite tasty: I usually switch off between the hummus and red pepper and the "HAT" (hummus, avocado, and tomato). Their cupcakes are also fantastic (not-too-sweet frosting), and the acai smoothie is good, too.

        Ah, I love Big Booty.

          Their Italian Wedding Soup is awesome!

            Haven't had the soups or sandwiches, but I love that place. My girlfriend threw a Cinco de Mayo party for my birthday last year and we ordered Red Velvet cupcakes, corn/corn & cheese arepas and a HUGE Tres Leches sheet cake from them. All of it was delicioso and they were a pleasure to deal with. Sometimes, if I'm in the neighborhood, I 'll stop in and get a round bun that has Nutella inside. Perfect breakfast bun or snack!

              I am hoping to try their cupcakes and their buns when we visit NY in March - does anyone have a website address for them - i tried to google it but got loads of results that were not related to baking!!!

              they do not have a website

              my only suggestion would be to skip the cupcakes, there other food is better and ny has many excellent places for cupcakes

                Thanks :)

                I've got a list of must visit cupcake places for my 8 days in NY and am at 18 so far (including Big Booty)! I like the sound of Big Bootys dulche de leche buns!

                Their chocolate chip cookies are amazing...I think I had one with walnuts or macadamias. Very, very tasty
