1. Levain Bakery
Its been called “the best bakery in Harlem!” The moist dark chocolate chocolate chip is a favorite, the oatmeal raisin cookies are right up there, the chocolate peanut butter cookies is too, oh and the Blueberry muffins are amazing.
Shop, The New Harlem World Shop!
Tip: If you’re watching your waist line the Blueberry muffins are low-cal friendly.
2. Make My Cake
One of the places Tina Fey mentions as her favorite cupcake places in NYC on 30 rock. Fresh pastries and deep dish cakes made to order will give you the sweet tooth chills. We think the best is anything that has that moist red velvet and the lemon frosting.
Tip: Arrive early to get the freshest pastries that are warm.
3. Savoy Bakery
If you are ever in East Harlem between 7AM and 7PM you really owe it to yourself to stop by the Savoy Bakery. The bakeries desserts are insanely great and well-priced, like the strawberry shortcake, don’t forget the chocolate croissant and last but not least, the melt in your mouth Cheesecake is divine.
Tip: With their great pricing buy a box full of desserts.
Take a Harlem Gospel & Jazz Tour
It’s called the best cookie in NY! We like the great fast service, especially the mint double chocolate chip cookie with the gooey, soft chocolate, and last, the deluxe chocolate s’mores is all you need to know.
Tip: Like most cookies they’re best served warm.
5. La Tropezienne Bakery
A little France in East Harlem with this classic French-flavored neighborhood bakery. The super fresh croissants are a must have, the Chantilly creamed pastries are yummy, let’s not talk about the delicious Frangipane tarts and the expertly buttered baguettes are the go-to goods.
Tip: They have a great lemonade during the summer.
La Tropezienne Bakery, 2131 1st Ave., (btwn E. 109th & 110th St.), NY, NY, 212.860.5324, twobakeriesandarestaurant.com
