We enjoyed a late dessert here last night. Very crowded but we were seated very quickly. Gelato very good, I had the chocolate windmill - tasty chocolate concoction. Canoli are very good. All the desserts we tasted were delicioius. Coffees were wonderful too. Service is very slow and if I were waiting for a table I wouldn't be happy. Our... More

It's the best dessert place in town and beyond, if you want to impress family and friends with baked goods you bring to their table. They even had hot coffee for people waiting in line on Thanksgiving morning. A guy exiting said, "It's the least they can do—I just paid $40 for a cheesecake." That made me a little angry,... More

It was my family's first visit to NYC, so I wanted to show them some special things that are not so well known to general visitors. Venero is for sure one of those. Always great coffee in the mornning, amazing selection of cakes, croissants and other pastry. They are known for the cheesecakes being among the best in town. Go... More

What can I say that you don't already know? I visited this place weekly when I lived in the city over a decade ago, and I still insist on coming back during my yearly visits. No place has better treats. Coming back here feels like home. I would sit here for hours just to enjoy the smell.

Have been here several times and it never disappoints. Wide variety of cheesecakes, pastries and the like. Pleasant environment and a great neighborhood. Will return for sure on my next visit to NYC.

If you're looking for a great dessert head to Veniero's. An amazing array of Italian pastries. It's a great place just to look at all the incredible individual desserts. The only bad thing about the place is trying to pick which one you will indulge in! FYI, when you first enter the shop you will need to get a number... More

Just browsing the never-ending pastry cases in this shop will entertain you enough to be worth the visit. And that's before you've put any of them in your mouth. This is artistry and joy in the form of so many tarts and pies and croissants and cookies you can scarcely make up your mind. And then there's the gelato. Grab... More

We didn't want to leave NY without trying cheesecake. Our guide on the Hop off bus recommended this shop. Not disappointed. Strawberry cheesecake was great, and prices were very reasonable

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
