City Bakery: "Delightful Desserts" The City Bakery Tip by danchatman

The City Bakery, New York City: 3 reviews and 1 photos

City Bakery is a deadly trap of sweets and coffees, and it can be a madhouse, but a fun one at that. I read about it, ironically, in an airline magazine and decided to swing by and give it a shot. Going there on an empty stomach was NOT a good idea.

Favorite Dish: They make their own homemade marshmallow, and so I tried it on top of their famous hot chocolate. The hot chocolate is the closest approximation to a melted candy bar this side of the Atlantic. RICH!!!!!!!!!
I also tried their cookies, which are equally amazing. There are other things, but those shall await another day.
