Bagel Shop

“Good place for a quick bagel, muffin, or sandwich before you hop on the subway. Or after you get back to the neighborhood. Open long hours. They bake the bagels right on the spot, so they're always fresh. There can be a line in the morning, but it moves pretty quickly.”

Bakery

“The best desserts in Brooklyn! This super-cute bakery with a tiny storefront specializes in cakes, seasonal pies, cookies and dozens of tasty treats. We're convinced they have magic elves in the back that sprinkle deliciousness on everything that comes out of the oven. The chocolate cake is absolutely amazing. You can get a mix of cookies by the pound, individual slices or whole pies, and cupcakes. Lovely staff that's always ready with a smile.”
