Baked Bakery in Brooklyn?

Does anyone know anything about a bakery in Brooklyn called Baked? Is is good? Worth the time to visit and try?

  1. It's on Van Brunt in Red Hook. Lots of hype, not as good as I expected. To me their baked goods seem like middle-of-the-road homemade. Better ingredients than many bakeries, but not extraordinary.

    1. The poster who called these "middle of the road homemade" must have had some awfully good homemade baked goods. This isn't a fancy French patisserie on the Payard model -- it's basically a cake place (although they have other things). In my opinion, these are some of the best cakes/cupcakes in the city. I think it's definitely worth giving it a try so you can decide for yourself. If Red Hook (359 Van Brunt Street) is too far out of the way, Tazza in Brooklyn Heights usually has cakes and cupcakes from Baked available.

        I had the most amazing double chocolate cookie from Baked...tasted more like a brownie than a cookie. Nothing middle of the road about it.

          The Double Chocolate Cookie is my go-to dessert. It's truly special. They usually stock them at Tazza if you're in the Brooklyn Heights area rather than Red Hook.

      2. This is my favorite bakery in the world. And I've been to some of the best bakeries in Europe. Like a previous poster already said, this is not a french bakery, but what they do (muffins, biscuits, cakes) is the best of its kind. I go out of my way to go there about 2x month.

        1. Had a really good experience here. I ordered a birthday cake for my dad (coconut). They were super helpful with the order and my family loved the cake. I enjoyed the salted cupcake (Can't recall what they called it), too.

            I wasnt at all troubled by the analog to good home baking, thought it was fair.. Baked doesnt do anything that a good home baker could not accomplish with good ingredients and recipes. The things Ive had there taste very good.

          2. monster cookies are always a hit at any dinner i bring them to - peanut butter oatmeal base with m&m's. how can you go wrong?

            1. I liked the atmosphere and the baked goods are yummy. I think it gets pretty crowded on the weekend though. I've enjoyed everything I've got here ^_^
              In addition to Tazza in Brooklyn Heights they stock Baked's good at Royal Cafe in the Village.

                Ha. Just read the follow-up to my original reply. I did, indeed, grow up with excellent home-baked cookies, cakes, pies, bread. So perhaps I'm a tougher critic than some. My mom really does make a better cake!
