New York City-Part 3

Are you ready for another sugar loaded NYC post? I sure hope so, because this one is extra sweet.

I started my day at Bouchon Bakery with Amanda, Jenny, and Lori. We ordered a little bit of everything.

Several of you asked how we eat everything, well we don’t. We all take a taste and move on. Look at the damage we did to these tasty treats. I hate wasting food, but we were on a mission to visit as many bakeries as we could. We had to pace ourselves.

We all fell in love with Bouchon’s macarons. We tried the peanut butter and jelly and vanilla macaron. The vanilla was dreamy! I wish I would have ordered a dozen.

Next, we stopped at Magnolia Bakery. We ordered a few treats to go. We all enjoyed the red velvet cheesecake.

Levain Bakery was our next stop, where we met up with Susan from Doughmesstic. I have heard about their famous cookies for years, so I was super excited to try them. We ordered a chocolate chip walnut cookie and a peanut butter chocolate chip.

The cookies are humongous! The cookies are served warm and really are amazing. They really do live up to the hype. I personally don’t appreciate nuts in my cookies, so I would get rid of the walnuts, but overall, these cookies get two thumbs up. My favorite cookie in NYC.

We took a break from the sweets to have lunch with Maggy, from Three Many Cooks. We enjoyed NYC pizza at Patsy’s Pizza.

Fresh Mozzarella, Basil, and Tomatoes. So delicious!

For dessert we went to Momofuku. We tried the cereal milk ice cream, birthday cake truffles, crack pie, and compost cookie. Honestly, I didn’t care for anything. Too odd for me:)

After a little break in our hotel room, we headed out again to try Billy’s Bakery and Lulu’s.

Jenny let me sample the chocolate Twinkie she ordered from Lulu’s. It was fantastic! I need to try making them at home:)

We took a cab over to Two Little Red Hens, a super cute bakery. In my opinion, they have the BEST cupcakes in NYC. The marble and Brooklyn Blackout were out of this world! I usually am not a cupcake person, but I could eat these every day!

Our last stop, Serendipity. We had to go. We all split a frozen hot chocolate and I am glad we did because it is one mighty dessert. Loved it though!

Next stop, BED! I hope you enjoyed my sugar tour of NYC! I hope to go back some day, I had a fabulous time sampling sweet with my favorite blogging buds!

  1. Wow. I would love to go bakery hopping in NYC. I can’t believe how many different places you made it to. And I definitely need to try the famed Serendipity frozen hot chocolate one of these days!

  2. I’m so surprised you didn’t like Momfuko! I love their cakes. I totally agree about nuts in the cookies! I love nuts but for some reason I think they take away from a cookie.

  3. How awesome that you got to hang out with some of your foodie friends. I’ve been fortunate to meet a few of mine, but not nearly enough, and not exploring NYC together. Jealous!

  4. Love this! How much fun that you all got to get together and eat up the town! I think my next trip to NYC needs to include a few more bakeries…

  5. I don’t know what’s more beautiful… the food or the sights! Sounds like you had a lovely trip. Thanks for sharing this, Maria!

  6. Crumbs! I’m not sure whether to be more envious that you went to New York and enjoyed all that cake or that so many of my favourite bloggers all got together in go. Looks like you had a fantastic time and I’ll be hopping over to the other guys to see whether they’ve reported back yet!

  7. I can’t believe how many stops you managed to visit on your short trip – kudos!! Looks like a blast ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I’m so happy you had a good time. I’ve got to check out that Two Little Red Hens bakery! That marble sounds delicious, and if you could have one everyday, they must be amazing. You guys had some awesome stops. I love NYC!

  9. LOVE Two Little Red Hens! We live across the street and it was one of the first treats we had when we moved here ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you had a good trip!

  10. I’ve loved all your bakery posts from New York. Everything looks so good! I feel inspired to check out quite a few myself ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you had a great trip!

  11. I agree with you on the nuts. I can’t stand nuts in my brownies, cookies, cakes, etc! It totally ruins them!
    I have a quick question fer ya. What is the lens on the camera in your first picture of you ladies in the park? I am looking to get a great lens that will help me get better pictures! Do you think it is worth it?!

  12. Thanks for the virtual tour guide! I will be sure to visit some of these places on my trip later this month!

  13. Thanks Maria for the list of goodies to find in the city. I have written a couple down to stop and indulge on my upcoming trip.. ๐Ÿ™‚
