Whenever we're near East Village, somehow we always manage to come here. The pastries, though a little pricey, are delicious. If you go there, the blood orange delight is a must. It's gluten free and SO good. The eclairs and napoleons are out of this world. They're so creamy and soft. Get the mini ones so you won't eat too... More

If you are ever in the East Village and feel like you need a little something sweet to pick you up, look no further than the venerable Veniero's. I do not roam the menu:I have coffee and cannoli when I eat in and cheesecake to go. No one in my experience has a better NY Style Cheesecake, and I've tried... More

Stopped at Veniero's after dinner for some pastries and coffee. What an incredible selection they have! We enjoyed the Italian cheesecake made with ricotta cheese and some gelato. Both were delicious. Enjoyed the old photos, amazing the shop has been here for more than 100 years. Will definitely be back again

Ladies & Gentlemen, this is my 117th review and counting. I'm not sure why people are still lining up for getting some cake and coffee in that place, it is rather a poor service, the cakes are far too sweat and the environment could be far better. Those guys need a woman that can put some "love" into this place... More

I used to work at Beth Israel Med Ctr in the mid-80s and would go here all the time. It is still my go-to place for Italian pastries and cookies when I visit. We took out a box of cookies and pastries after a late meal around the block but the takeout counter still had a pretty lengthy line. The... More

A sight for sore travellers' eyes and a delight to the senses. The place was very busy later in the night. By the way, the coffee is good, too.

This has some of the best cakes in NYC. Try the strawberry shortcake and chocolate pinwheel cake, they are two of the best I believe. The selection though is wonderful and the smells delectable. If you're driving though, parking is an issue out here.

The strawberry cheesecake is amazing! Very creamy,light not too sweet and very tasty! The place has been there for more than 100 years, the owners are very nice too. If you are craving a real new york cheesecake thats the place to go!

This is a great late night place for a dessert. I tried the cheesecake, which was good, but the vanilla cannoli was to die for! I had good, quick service, and only had to wait about 5 minutes for table.
