Just in case you miss the cornets (which i did sadly) everything, i repeat everything else you might try here is amazing! I went during the summer when the hottest item to get was the frozen smore. It was amazing to eat with an iced coffee, you won't regret going here

Cronuts were first introduced in May 2013 by this bakery and word of mouth quickly spread about this new pastry. I've been told by friends and locals of NY that if I wanted to try the original cronut, I would have to get in line at the bakery as early as 6am to guarantee one. I took their advice and got here at 6am on a Tuesday morning. When I got there the line was about 20 people deep. The bakery doesn't open until 8am so I waited it out for 2 hours. About an hour before they opened, a worker came out to explain how they would be distributing the cronuts and how
many you could buy. For the day of purchase cronuts, they allowed a max of 2 per person. You could pre-order, but you have to do it in advance. You can read on how to pre-order on their website. This month's flavor is Fig Mascarpone. They only make one flavor for each month. After the worker gave the announcement, another worker came by to give
out freshly baked samples of madeleines. It was so nice, warm, and fluffy! Soon enough, 8am came around and I was able to get my cronuts in about 15 mins. If you love pastries, this is a must visit bakery for you. They also have other popular pastries such as the DKA. But some of the other items on their menu does change when the season changes.

I wanted to come just for the cronut because trying a knock-off left me wanting to try the real deal. Luckily, the weather was a bit gloomy, so the line was short. We got inside in 45 minutes! If you don't want a cronut, you can just go inside and get your pastries/drinks.
I loved the garden in the back. Part of it is covered when there's bad weather; the other half is open. Plenty of seating :)Recommended for:Foodies

I love this bakery and I'm so lucky to have it only a few blocks. I pass by it everyday to work so I can get some goodies for breakfast.
EVERYTHING IS GOOD! YOU CAN'T PASS THIS PLACE UP. ONE OF THE BEST DESSERT PLACE IN NYC.
