A great little bakery & coffee shop in Hell's Kitchen (they have 2 other locations now, but this was the original). What makes them great, in addition to their substantial skills:
We serve the New York City area, and make all of our freshly baked products every day. We don’t parbake and freeze, and we don’t pre-package our items. We believe that the best bread and pastries are made in the Old World way - by hand and enjoyed within hours of being freshly baked!And the leftovers that don't get eaten within hours?
Every day we donate our extra bread to Fountain House and City Harvest (8000 lbs per month gathered from our 3 stores!).
