CHer visiting from Toronto

I'll be visiting Manhattan with 6 young (20 to 26) adults in tow. We're staying at an apartment rental near 57th and 10th so I'd appreciate knowing of any good bakery/bagel places around there where I can pick up things to take back for breakfast. We'll be out and about and I know there are hundreds of great places to eat but if you can think of anything offhand that would be fun and inexpensive, and a New York experience, pass them along.

  1. You've got a number of options within walking distance for pastries/baked goods:

    Bouchon Bakery in Time Warner Center, 59th and 8th
    Petrossian, 58th and 7th
    Amy's Bread, 47th and 9th
    Sullivan Street Bakery, 47th and 11th

    For bagels, you can go to Whole Foods in the Time Warner Center, but I'm not sure what bakeries they're carrying there these days. Or walk to H&H 46th Street branch, which is on the West Side Highway. I don't think you're really close to any of the known/famous bagel spots.

    In terms of great New York experiences and food, check out these discussions:

    BTW, I highly recommend RGR's self guided Lower East Side Gustatory tour but sub in Pickle Guys for Guss' Pickles:

      Wow, thanks for all the information, Kathryn. The Gustatory tour looks like a lot of fun and I'll go through all the other information.

        You're welcome! I should note that Bouchon Bakery is in the Time Warner Center and has both a takeout counter and a sit down restaurant.

        Petrossian also has a casual cafe with takeout next door to the more formal restaurant.

        And there's also the uptown branch of La Bergamote on 52nd between 10th and 11th. Both La Bergamote and Petrossian are known for their croissants.
