City Bakery is known as one of the best bakeries in NYC, primarily due to its original Pretzel Croissant. What in the world is a pretzel croissant, I wanted to know. My friend Elke who works in NYC had never been there and was excited to check it out as well. We walked into the large bakery/café and were immediately greeted by numerous treats tempting us from the display cases. There were so many delicious things to try!
We ended up with a chocolate chip cookie (to continue our goal of finding New York’s best cookie!) and their other original, the Baker’s Muffin, which is like a cinnamon bun but add in apples, raisins and walnuts. It might have looked a little better than it tasted – it wasn’t as gooey and flavorful as I was expecting. So while it was still quite good, I think they have a few better items to get. Such as… the Pretzel Croissant, which of course we got as well.
