7th avenue and 54th- need tasty treats

I plan on going upstate ny this weekend. I want to bring some tasty treats so i picked up some port salut cheese and cerignola olives for noshing.

I work on 54 and 7th (new to neighborhood) and was wondering if anyone has additional recommendations for yummy unusual food items or just down right good things that i can pick up in addition to what i have already

pastry/cupcake shops
cheese shops
wine shops
specialty goods shops

      agreed. Their croissant and baguettes are very good. other that I cant think of much in the area ,unless you want to go to Time Warner which is not that close.

        Today or tomorrow you could go over the to farmers market in Rock Center - its there Wed-Fri for the rest of the month - not big but the vendors who are there are generally pretty good. Bobolink Dairy was there this morning and I picked up some nice cheese.

          One more thought - for a breakfast treat, I do like the muffins at Between the Bread, 145 W 55th (btw 6th and 7th).
