“Brownie Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

It is true that they have the best brownies anywhere. Also cakes and cookies of every kind. They also do a tremendous business on custom cakes for different occasions.

“Awesome, but limited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Greenberg makes awesome things, but in a limited range (basically classic cakes, cookies and brownies). What they do they do very well. Just don't expect huge variety.

“As traditional as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Not only is the staff always really nice (and I can truly say this because they saw me coming towards the store on crutches last winter and ran to get the door open for me) but this is like the quintessential bakery for me. Who doesn't like their black and whites? They're amazing. These also remain my favorite rainbow cookies. But the thing I dream about is the hamentaschen - cheese, poppy seed, prune. Sooooo good. It's like a drug for me. I was halfway happy I stopped eating gluten because my dad begged me to buy him a cookie from there and I walked in and saw they have flourless stuff. Seriously? And it was amazing! Flourless apple cake and a chocolate raspberry tart that was so good it should be illegal. I wish they would make them all year round. Oh and the macaroons. Yeah I eat a lot of stuff from here. This is definitely someplace you can stop and pick up desserts on the way to someone's house or for a little party. It's traditional done well.

“Awesome Black & White Cookie, Awesome Bakery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

A Very, Very Simple review about William Greenberg Bakery on Madison Avenue.....Awesome! (Both the bakery and Cookie!) The Black and White Cookies are Moist, Fresh, and Taste delicious! One of the Best B & W Cookies in New York City! They gladly pack them in a box for the trip/ride home. Highly recommended! Enjoy!
