5 Places In NYC Everybody With A Sweet Tooth Should Keep On Emergency Speed Dial

If you're like me and enjoy desserts, this article is for you!

Before the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically changed most of our lifestyles, I had the opportunity to eat delicious desserts at the following places. In no particular order, these places stood out to me for various reasons.

Keep in mind that eating treats with excessive amounts of processed sugar is a problem, but everything in moderation is fine. I also apologize if some of the photos are blurry; I was in a rush to eat. But you know what they say, phone eats first! :)

1. Insomnia Cookies


Picture this: It's New Year's Eve, and you just finished eating an exquisite meal at your favorite Italian restaurant in Manhattan. You can barely walk from all the food you ate, but there's always room for dessert, of course.

On the way back to your hotel, you pass an Insomnia Cookies location, and the aroma guides you inside. Even though it was cold and rainy that night, I became tempted to purchase an ice cream sandwich to satisfy my sugar craving.

I have absolutely no regrets, and I can't wait to try more of their cookies.

2. Milk Bar


OK, please hear me out! I understand that some may believe that Milk Bar is overpriced and overrated. However, disregard all of their cakes and cookies and give its Milk Bar® Pie (formerly known as Crack Pie) a chance!

Their website describes it as a "sticky, buttery, salty-sweet filling in a hearty oat cookie crust." One of my favorite teachers in high school generously bought me a slice, and I fell in love with it ever since.

Although I will admit that it is a little pricey, try it at least once, and you won't be disappointed. The Milk Bar® Pie is undoubtedly for those who have a sweet tooth.

3. Bibble & Sip


Calling all cream puff and tea lovers, you will love this place. I tried the Hazelnut and Earl Grey Vanilla Cream Puffs and the Iced Passion Fruit Jasmine Tea, and it exceeded my expectations.

Walking into Bibble & Sip and getting a sense of the ambiance instantly boosted my serotonin levels. The staff remained upbeat and greeted you with a smile despite the influx of customers, and the wide selection of pastries and drinks brought a smile to my face.

You can tell the staff goes above and beyond to provide a pleasurable experience, and I admire them for that.

4. Grace Street Coffee & Desserts


After a long day of shopping, going to museums and libraries, and exploring New York City, my friends and I knew we had to get dessert at Grace Street. We had just finished eating at a Korean restaurant for dinner that wasn't impressive, so we needed something to make up for it.

Grace Street was the perfect place to go. We shared a custom made Shaved Snow with sweetened and condensed milk, strawberries, and strawberry drizzle, and the Matcha Beignets. The first bites blew me away, and I was no longer upset about the terrible dinner I had before.

Location: 17 W 32nd St, New York, NY 10001

5. Soma Cakes


If you ever need to purchase a cake or cupcakes for a celebration or even if you're just in the mood, Soma Cakes is the place to go.

I'm sure that many of you can relate to unusually spending your birthday or graduation this year due to the pandemic. While it was a bummer to celebrate at home, Soma Cakes significantly lifted my spirits.

Their red velvet cupcakes were such a hit among my family and me that we got a cake for my graduation. Their red velvet selections tasted very light and didn't give me a headache after eating them, unlike other places that use too much sugar.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
