Dominique Ansel Bakery

Under: Things to do in NYC

Last month, I ordered cronuts online and went to Soho early one morning to pick them up…the cronut craze is still going strong at Dominique Ansel Bakery and the line was kind of ridiculous when I got there on Friday:


Luckily, I didn’t have to wait in the long line because I ordered the cronuts online and just had to walk up to the door and get in a separate line to pick them up. The flavor of the month was ridiculously good (raspberry lychee for Valentine’s day) and they’re so nice that while you’re waiting, they bring out little madelines to nibble on. When I got in, I saw the full-on madness of the cronut assembly line behind the counter:


Since I ordered the cronuts online, I was able to get 6 instead of the typical 2 – more to share! I brought them to the office and shared with my teammates. Before the big reveal:


Ta da!:


These really do need to be enjoyed immediately:


Delicious, worth the hassle of going to Soho in the morning, and definitely not diet friendly. If you can’t get there for their cronuts (or their chocolate chip cookie shots…or frozen s’more…or DKA), then try their caneles – my favorite in the city!

I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
else experiencing issues with your blog. It appears as though some of the written text within your content
are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let
me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with
my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
Thank you
