Favorite Sweets and Eats in NYC

I am on my way to NYC this weekend to meet one of my best traveling friends Amanda of Kevin and Amanda.  We have been traveling together for years and one of our favorites is definitely NYC!  Please be warned, my Instagram feed this weekend is going to have LOTS of food pictures and I mean lots.  If you are on a diet, you might want to unfollow me, lol!

I’ve put together some of my favorite places to eat while visiting this weekend.  I intend to eat every single one of these goodies, lol!  Can’t wait!

Levain Bakery Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie

Levain Bakery.  Quite possibly one of my favorite cookies on the planet is this warm chocolate peanut butter cookie.  Can’t wait to sink my teeth into it!!

Doughnut Plant

Doughnut Plant!  Heaven help me when I walk through these doors.  There’s no telling how many doughnuts I will order, lol!  That top one is a creme brûlée doughnut and there’s nothing like it.  Amazing to say the least 🙂

Bouchon Bakery

 Bouchon Bakery, Columbus Circle location is a classic and has the best macarons I’ve ever had.  The vanilla one is to die for!

Max Brenner

 Max Brenner!  The best milkshake I’ve ever had.  Period.  It’s called the 80’s milkshake.  A must order.  Their breakfasts are over the top delicious too 🙂

Chelsea's Market NYC

Chelsea Market is one of those places you could just move in and live in the walkways.  So many fun places to eat and shop.  Food Network Studios are here too.  A must visit.

Eleni's New York City

Inside Chelsea’s Market is Eleni’s Bakery.  A must visit in Chelsea’s Market for whimsical sugar cookies and irresistible cupcakes.

Serendipity 3 New York City

Serendipity 3 is a classic.  You don’t go to NYC without getting a Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity.  I re-created the recipe, be sure to check it out HERE.

Magnolia's Bakery NYC

Magnolia Bakery has all kinds of delicious baked goods to choose from.  Famous for their banana pudding, and adorable store front, I can’t wait to go back 🙂

Crumbs Bake Shop

Another cupcake favorite for me is Crumbs Bake Shop.  Their Cookie Dough Cupcake is one of my very favorites!

Waffles and Dinges Food Truck

The Waffles and Dinges Food Truck is a must too!  Belgian crispy sweet waffles.  Mmm!

Artisinal Mac and Cheese NYC

I know I’m talking mostly sweets, but a trip to NYC wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Artisinal Bistro for the best mac and cheese around.  Love!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!  I’m going to live by the motto that there’s no calories when on vacation, lol!  At least I’ll feel better 🙂

    Skip Magnolia’s cupcakes (but do go for the banana pudding). Definitely skip Crumbs’ cupcakes. Go to Buttercup Bake shop (midtown east). Highly recommend a lemon cupcake, or a regular vanilla.

    Have a great time. I’ll wave “Hi” from the northern suburbs.

    Levain Bakery and Waffles & Dinges are ammmmazing. Have you been to Sugar Sweet Sunshine Bakery? It’s near the Lower East Side and is delicious! Their Chocolate Peppermint cupcake is soooo good! Ooh! And if you’re looking for a killer slice try Prince St. Pizza and order a spicy pepperoni square. Best pizza in the city, was just there Friday for lunch. 🙂
