Was sent here by my sister’s recommendation (and that girl bakes!). Was happy to find a great place, with many kinds of unique flavored pastries and super friendly staff.

Had we not had very specific directions, I’m not sure that we would’ve found this place. It’s kind of dropped in the middle of an urban residential area. There is no sign out front, just a symbol… So you know the place must be good and have seriously loyal followers when they don’t need to put their name on the building. This place was very busy… Small storefront, with what appeared to be a pretty good sized kitchen/bakery operation in the back. Limited menu with featured items that were quite intriguing. We got a box of six items to take back to the hotel and share with the kids, a variety of sweet breakfast treats. They were very aesthetically pleasing and very tasty. I suspect this outfit has a large return customer base. If you are staying in the Union Square area, you can take a bus directly west to get here quickly and easily.

This is a very very small space. Impossible to sit and have breakfast unless you’re by yourself. The pastries were all very good though, sweet and savory ones to choose from. Find a place to sit and send someone to the shop to buy the goodies

This tiny bakehouse was so YUMMY! I would recommend the Cruffin. A local told us that 'this is the love-child of a croissant and a muffin' and each day the bakehouse has a different flavor. Pros: yummy food and great aesthetic. Cons: closes early. pro tip:Get there before 9:30am for best eats.
