Our first stop was Bouchon Bakery in Columbus Circle. It was inside the Time Warner Center. It was also a cafe and so we sat down and had a nice little break from all of our walking. At the suggestion of our server, we had the apple crumble with an apple cider sorbet. It was absolutely divine! Just melted in your mouth and the sorbet was so refreshing. Absolutely one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. I didn’t realize it, but they also have a counter service where you can get cookies, etc. So we’ll have to get some of those to go next time. Definitely visit here and you won’t be dissapointed!!
After walking around for quite a while, we worked up a bit of an appetite and decided to get a Crumbs cupcake to go and take it back to our hotel as our pre-broadway snack.
We got the chocolate chip cookie dough cupcake and it even had a little cookie sticking out of the top, and as a nice surprise had a chocolate filling as well! This cupcake was so moist and the flavor of the icing was spot on to cookie dough (and just the right amount of sweetness-not too sugary). I absolutely loved it! This was actually my favorite cupcake that we had our entire trip.
The next day, after the Today show, we couldn’t find the breakfast place I was wanting to go to, so we decided to have cupcakes for breakfast! After all, it’s vacation, right? So we stopped at the ever famous Magnolia Bakery.
It was so cute, and I loved how they had different lines for drinks, cookies, cakes, and cupcakes so if you wanted something different, you didn’t have to wait in just one huge long line.
After lunch in the chelsea market, we stopped at the Jaques Torres Hot Chocolate Bar and tasted some of their chocolates. They had so many unique flavors.
We tried the wicked fun, which had some chipolte chiles in it. It was so good. It had a sweet chocolate taste and then after you swallowed you would get the heat. So delicious. We also tried one that had melon in it that gave a nice fruity flavor and then an almond flavor. They were all great, but the wicked fun was our favorite.
Next up on our bakery crawl was Milk & Cookies, which was just down the street from Sweet Revenge. We actually had a bite of our cookie and then took it to go because we were full from the cupcake. I loved how they had the cookies on a rack labeled and that’s where you ordered them from. Let you know they were right out of the oven.
I ordered the toffee chocolate chip and it was so delicious. It had a nice chewy texture and that perfect blend of sweet and salty.
