Just LOVE this place. The best croissants filled with wonderful chocolate. The stacks of big fat chocolate chip cookies in the window don't just Beckon you inside, they demand your presence inside.

Very quaint little shoppe, simple display of humongous cookies in front window, they draw you in. Interesting mix of food including cookies, pastries, scones and salads. The corn-bread salad is delicious and a must have when I'm in soho.

I wasn't hungry for a cookie, but I kept seeing people eating these wonderful cookies out of a bag with the name birdbath on them and then stumbled upon the stacked cookies in the window and couldn't refuse. I got the chocolate chip for $3 and loved it! I wasn't quite sure on the name of the bakery as the... More

First of all, they should be given some sort of low-key marketing award for featuring simple stacks of their cookies in the window. How are you supposed to walk past that? Don't ask me, since clearly I couldn't. We got one chocolate chip, one oatmeal raisin and one peanut butter. You can slap me for saying it, but while the... More

We happened to walk past this cute little bakery! You go inside and they are super busy every second of the day! We had the double choc-chip and coconut cookies! Very very rich but yummy! Took me a couple of days to finish my cookie!! Paced myself! Each of them probably has half a block of butter in it! Not... More

Every time I'm in NYC I have to visit one of the many conveniently-dispersed branches of this nice little bakery. I love that they keep all their cookies in tall stacks, lined up on the counter. I've only ever seen a chocolate-chip cookie made available here with vegan ingredients, but seeing as how that's my favorite cookie type, I don't... More

I had to stop by this cute little bakery shop everyday during our short visit to NYC. It is on Prince street in a quiet area in Soho. If I recall, I think they are also a "green" bakery as well. (I will have to check out the details online.) Regardless of how they cook their goodies......EVERYTHING in the store... More

We bought cookies from the prince street branch, they are absolutely amazing and we will go again on Thursday they were that good. We will walk to different store tomorrow even with it meaning an 18 block detour! Muffin was less good, quite dry but tasty

Absolutely love the vegan chocolate chip cookies. They offer several other vegan items but I haven't tried anything else yet. Enjoy!
