The Viral Supreme from Lafayette Grande Cafe and Bakery: There’s no way around it, Lafayette’s Bakery has a hit. The Supreme, invented at their in-house bakery, has become a global hit, and at their three daily drops at 8:00 AM, 12:00 PM, and 4:00 PM, you’ll find long lines waiting for this hit. It’s a croissant like pastry, made into a circle, filled with tasty cream, and topped with icing. They offer this incredible pastry in both chocolate and a monthly seasonal flavor.
Build-Your-Own Ice Cream Cookiewiches from Captain Cookie & The Milkman: This neighborhood newcomer makes their cookies fresh, from scratch everyday, alongside a great selection of ice cream. Enjoy the best of both worlds with their cookiewiches! This tasty treat is two cookies of your flavor choice with a heaping scoop of ice cream sandwiched between. The flavor combinations are basically endless!
Pop Culture Inspired Cookies from Funny Face Bakery: Known for their impeccably hand-piped cookies featuring pop culture moments, these cookies make a great gift!

Hibachi-Style Ice Cream from Catch’n Ice Cream: Catch’n Ice Cream, by influencer Dylan Lemay, offers a unique hibachi style ice cream. You start off with a premade ice cream ball covered with toppings, and it’s diced and chopped into the ice cream you’re familiar with. They also offer ice cream cakes, perfect for taking to a party.
Fan Favorite Cookies from Levain Bakery: The giant cookies from Levain are fan favorites in NYC for a reason. They’re huge, they’re delicious, and they’ve been drawing lines for years now. They offer several flavors, but if you’re trying it for the first time, we recommend the two-chip cookie that was made up for and first released at the NoHo location!
Artisanal, Seasonal Baked Goods from Think Coffee: This NoHo-based coffee shop also offers up pastries from their award-winning in-house bakery. They offer a big selection of pastries, including seasonal flavors, and their delightful bakes goods are available at both of their NoHo locations. They also offer several vegan options.
Bourbon Infused Chocolate from Great Jones Distillery: Don’t get us wrong, if you visit Great Jones Distillery, you should absolutely get a cocktail or two. However, in their gift shop, they sell delicious, bourbon infused chocolates. These rich bars of chocolate make for a delightful treat and great gift.
