Slightly pricey, but the quality is to notch. I'll definitely stop back when I'm in the area again. Almond croissants in particular were delicious. I sat inside for a while and that was also nice.

Everything is ultra fresh and delicious. We had a chocolate babka, cheese danish, and a tasty cheddar cheese croissant. Everything was delicious.

Popped in for a quick coffee and some wifi to Breads and Bakery. Read the review and got my expectations up very high. And as a café I was a bit disappointed. Not so cosy as I would have expected. But on the other hand,...More

Very nice place for breakfast! Worth visiting for a delicious assortment of fine bakery delights. Nice coffee. And of course chocolate babka just perfect. I can also add the almond croissant as a suggestion. The place is self service, very kind staff.

The best babka in New York is found at Breads Bakery. They have several locations. It is soft, chocolaty, and pulls apart. It is hard to stop eating this delicious treat.

Description
Our bakery believes in artisanal, handmade, traditional baking techniques which is why we have the factory and oven on site. Most of the breads we bake are made with whole grains and go through a slow proofing process, which sharpens and improves the taste. We select only the finest ingredients and, when possible, use natural and organic ingredients. The bakery bakes both sweet and savory items. The cafe serves premium coffee, next to light meals, made from fresh products that just came out of the oven.
