On an early Wednesday morning I went to visit one of the best ranked bakeries in NYC. This bakery is located in New York’s Soho District. They have numerous types of desserts and pastries that are freshly made everyday, but the most famous pastry they sell is called a cronut. They dedicated an entire section of their website just for this pastry because it is so high in demand. It is a half croissant, half doughnut. They make a limited amount everyday and sell out quickly in the morning.
I did not want to miss my chance of getting a cronut so me and my best friend traveled on a 6:00 am train and ferry and made our way to the bakery by 7:45am. The second the doors opened at 8am it got very busy. Thankfully I successfully bought my cronut and it tasted amazing. It’s rich in flavor, buttery, and sweet and had the most unique flavor and texture that I have ever tried. I highly recommend going early and trying this amazing bakery. Here is a list to show the top three items on their menu.
1. Cronut: There is only flavor of the Cronut pastry every month. For the month of November the flavor is Maple Pecan with salted sugar. $5.50
2. Cookie Shot: served warm with cold-infused tahitian vanilla milk. They only serve them past 3.00pm. $3.00
3. Frozen S'more: honey marshmallow wrapped around a tahitian vanilla ice cream with chocolate wafer crisps, served on a smoked willow wood branch and torched to order. $7.00
They have hundreds of different pastry options such as cakes, pies, croissants, eclairs, ice-cream, cookies, soufflés, tarts, and so much more. They are all beautifully presented through a clear glass. I highly suggest waking up early and making a sweet visit to the Dominique Ansel Bakery.
