B-Sides: Amy's Bread

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!).


  1. It looks drooling good if you know what I mean. The accompanying text is also interesting to read. Just looking around and showing your surroundings is also nice at the other side of the ocean. I try to do the same.

  2. Quite an assortment of breads - the smells emanating from the establishment must be intoxicating if the baking is done on the premises. A successful assignment in food photography when it looks enticing enough to eat!
