Living in Astoria allows me the perks of living quite close to Manhattan as well as having access to many cafes, bakeries and cute bistros so that I can fulfill my cravings without having to trek into Manhattan to get them. Now, everyone knows I was born with a sweet tooth so I was very surprised that I was able to resist La Guli for over a year after having passed it on numbers occasions! But a recent visit to my family in New Jersey finally had me opening the doors of this beautiful and quaint bakery to get some sweet treats to take with me to my family’s place in Jersey.
Upon walking in to La Guli, you are immediately greeted by the delicious scents of warm baked treats; the sort of scents you would associate with your grandmother’s kitchen after she finished baking pies, cakes and breads! After a few inhales and exhales your eyes will be treated with the sight of trays and trays of yummy baked fares that are just too sinful to be legal!
My choice for the day? Tarts and cannolis…and everyone in that house in West New Jersey was quite happy for the rest of the evening! So go in to La Guli and indulge in your sweet tooth!
The end of Summer is here 😦 boooooooo! So let’s extend Summer just a tad bit longer by indulging in WonderBerry’s Frozen Yogurts Delight. The bright and fresh decor of WonderBerry coupled with the delicious aroma of freshly cooked waffle cones will have you leaving your pockets just a bit lighter after leaving! Located conveniently in Hell’s Kitchen on 9th Avenue between 46th and 47th street, this is the perfect spot to wander into after a romantic dinner with your beau! Give them a try! You won’t be disappointed!
Holy Cannoli are the only words that come to mind when I think of my recent trip to Ferrarra Bakery & Cafe – the first Espresso Bar in America since 1892. The sweet treats at Ferrarra are simply amazing and because you are presented with so many choices it will be quite difficult to make up your mind on what to order! I recommend for anyone going to this wonderful spot on a date, with friends or even solo! You will not be disappointed!
Being a new New Yorker, I always thought it was pointless to go to the same restaurant twice but whenever I have a craving for something vegan or organic I always end up at Atlas Cafe and I have never once been disappointed. Atlas has been a destination for me even before I moved here. It was one of the first cafes I’ve been to when I was a tourist and now that I am engrained in the life here, it’s the only the cafe I keep going back to over and over again!
Atlas is a wonderful hole-in-the-wall spot to visit, especially in the early or late Summer months. I love sitting on the bench outside enjoying a vegan cookie and a latte while I watch the passers-by on 2nd Ave. While Atlas maybe not be the most romantic spot to go on a date, it’s cute and cozy atmosphere on the inside will have you rubbing shoulders and knees with your sweetheart and the summer breeze on the outside will stir a bit of romance into your afternoon!
When was the last time you sat at a cafe and sank your teeth into the velvety smoothness of a french macaroon? Macaron Cafe is one of the sweetest spots for indulgences in Manhattan! In addition to yummy macaroons, Macaron Cafe offers a wide variety of cafe items to choose from their menu. The ambience is relaxing and welcoming and the sweet treats are amazing! This is a perfect spot for a brunch date!
