Great chocolate chips my favorite
Dominique Ansel kitchen and different than the bakery .. the cookie & cuffing was amazing
Mushroom soup and Veal Meatball with Polenta were excellent.
The place is very nice and service was good, but the food was tasteless and the cookies were awful.
Great kitchen, very good customer service
almond croissant is good!!! I think that is better than the doughnut!!
This place could be awesome if they just served better coffee. Pastries are incredible ....
Really great place for dessert.... plan ahead, arrive early as it will be packed
Some things here are absolutely incredible, others just look really pretty. The ice cream is a bit pricey but very good.
A guilty pleasure beautiful and tasty no much to say , a must go place. You have to try it to really now how good it is!
Personally I like the bakery better. My beignets were below average but the customer service was nice.
While a little crowded, they always have delicious food and dessert. I especially enjoyed their avocado toast, which I can tell was well made not only by how beautifully they presented it, but also because I enjoyed it despite my passionate disliking of vinegar- which it had a little. To make a person thoroughly enjoy food they dislike, it takes a very good chef.
I think the best word I could use for the quality of the pastry in this place is simply "heavenly"!
Friendly staffs and very attentive service. They have a variety selection to choose, love their bakery, unique and creative. Self serve seating but not too many seats thou.
Came here for Unlimited Possibilities, amazing experience. Getting the reservation online was easy but they get sold out fast! The menu changes so gotta stay updated.
Love this place. A little pricey but they have a lot of unique and creative treats
Best cookie ever. I wish I could have it every day. I’m in love with their cookies
I've never had anything bad from here.
This location is a lot less crowded than the Soho one - the line is contained within the store. You place your order and they bring it over to you when it's ready. Interesting and inspired seasonal offerings, like a poached pear in gingerbread mousse cake and the grapefruit tart. My descriptions don't do the desserts justice. Pricey but worth it if you enjoy inventive desserts.
Best bakery. Their coffee wasn't bad either.
Nice Environment , Friendly Customer Service , Good one in New York :)
Probably the best croissant in the city. The team is super nice. The coffee on par with Starbucks slops. Do yourself a favor and get it across the street a Toby's instead.
Service slow, but delicious desserts
This is NOT the cronut spot. Only offered in soho location early mornings (sells out quickly). Service was nice and pastries were average.
I ordered the DKA, a ham & cheese croissant, and a cinnamon roll. DKA had good flavor; not a lot of depth, though (of flavor nor of texture). The ham & cheese was standard fare (at an above-standard price). The cinnamon roll, though, was awful. It had the texture of a sodden, disintegrating sponge. I went back to the counter and asked how they heated it for my order, and I was freely and confidently told that it was microwaved — they MICROWAVED my $6 pastry.
Very small location but it’s a pleasant experience if you manage to get outside seating & the sun’s out! Grapefruit tart was a definite WIN. Macarons were so-so. There are better ones!
The food is pretty fancy and expensive, especially for an order-at-the-counter place. You don't come here to get full. That said, it's pretty good, and worth a try.
This was a New York bucket list stop for me. It's smaller than I expected but the staff was super friendly and the service was fast. I got a few pastries to go and they were absolutely incredible. It was a little expensive but well worth it.
Can’t recommend highly enough. Be prepared for long lines. It almost always crowded but the wait is definitely worth it. Must tries include their Madelines, Eclairs and Cookie shots.
Nutella croissant was awesome! Freshly baked cookies just oozed deliciousness!!
Always a favorite. Get the frozen smore!
Great motto! Love their cakes too - had an amazing grapefruit honey tart
Interesting desserts. Lovely decor.
Delicious, creative desserts! Amazing customer service, especially from Shania. She was so friendly right when I walked in the door. She offered a sample of a treat, and when I told her I couldn't have it because I was gluten free, she prepared a special sample just for me of a gluten free cookie without me even requesting it. 5 star food, 5 star service. Thanks Shania!!
Food was good I personally like the noodles. Highly recommended.
I had only stopped at this location in the summertime for their soft serve, afraid it would be a circus like the Spring St. location in SoHo. While you can't get a cronut here, the DKA is, and it never disappoints. The canelé is served cold and missing the traditional rum flavor, but they get the texture right- firm outside with an almost custard in the center.
The desserts looks great. But the taste is terrible.
Superb baked goods. The almond lavender croissant tastes like it was made by angels. Would love to see more savory items, but what is available is top notch. Highly recomnended.
I don't recommend their plate food and drinks. But the sweet buttery croissant, which they display in pack, was good. I'll recommend using their disposal tableware. The metal forks and knives that wrapped in napkins weren't clean.
Tried the ultimate S'more. The dessert is huge. The taste is good but it is quite sweet after eating half of it. It maybe better to be shared with someone. The staff is friendly.
One of the best French bakeries in the city. They run the complete gamut of simple cookies all the way to sophisticated baked confections. Their customer service is top-notch.
Inventive deserts and dishes. Always good. The interior is not that comfortable. Outdoor seating in the summer.
Live their souls, hot chocolate, everything is delicious!!!
Obsessed with everything DA! Especially UP- Unlimited Possibilities, which is a 2hour dessert only meal and boy does this blow your mind or what! I've been to 2 UP seasons and not going to miss any going forward. Not very expensive and worth every penny you pay for this experience.
Cheesecake was horrible, blueberry laminated thing was pretty good, but my expectations were really high and I was way disappointed. Service wasn’t really good as well
Venue was pretty small, but the almond croissant I got there was on another level. It's definitely not a place you can eat your food comfortably in -it's way too small, but the pastries there are indeed out of this world.
Love the soft serve
S’mores was great. Like the “kitchen” more. Less touristy and more relaxed.
The What A Melon Soft Serve was amazing. Very different. Never thought about eating watermelon ice cream from inside a slice of watermelon. It's a cool concept.
I think the branch in Tokyo has tastier bakeries and cakes. a bit disappointed with this branch in NYC. When I was there, the place was empty.
If your into pastries this is the place to go to
The plainer baked goods are the move, but everything is good.
The cronut was not available in this location but this blueberry brioche made up for it.
The super high quality pastries you would expect from Dominique Ansel, but beware of getting them to go; the packaging they give you does not hold up well. Better to eat such things as soon as possible anyway!
Very nice and cozy deserts place with a decent amount of savoury option. The seating is a bit limited yet comfy.
Recommend for choc chip cookies (one of the best in NYC) and the seasonal softserve (what-a-melon). Outdoor, undercover seating with tables available on 7th Ave and limited indoor seating in amphitheatre style seats.
Delicious desserts and croissants! But what I like the most about this place is the great service - Valerie is so attentive, patient and is always smiling. Her positive attitude and good food make me want to go back!
Garlic croissant -- yum!
The pastries are always made fresh to order everything's delicious have lots of butter... chocolate chip cookies almond croissants
We love this ice cream
Great for patisserie not for salty dishes. The croque-monsieur was dry too cooked no béchamel sauce. The avocado toast was with a sugary brioche. Only good is desert
The fresh out the oven bakery smell will drag you in!! And forget about your diet..the DKA pastry is just absolutely amazing!!
Sage smoked brownie unfolds numerous flavors per bite. Allow full 60 seconds between each. Even the packaging is meticulously bohemian.
I don't understand why it's considered as one of the best bakery in town, honestly, was very desapointed with their desserts, had much better already in New York... And by the was, nothing French at all there, except the name...
Their caneles are the best I've had in the city.
The Brown Sugar Orange Pavlova is amazing! Worth every $
The dessert and good there were really good. The line is shorter than Dominique Ansel bakery; so it’s worth coming here instead if you know they serve the food that you want. There’s not a lot of seatings though at this location.
Nice dessert place that is very comfortable to stay for a few hours to chat or read. I had their ice cream back in the summer which was basil flavored and a bit...weird? I also had their matcha beignets another time, which was indeed very fluffy and sweet. The beignet itself was a 10 but the matcha part not so much so.
I LIVE for their buratta ice cream. 100% with every penny
THE ABSOLUTE BEST! We make sure To visit Dominique Ansel any chance we get. Never disappoints
Interesting artsy bakery cafe
Everything is delicious
Had the kougin amman, lavender almond croissant, and chocolate chip cookie. Cookie was fine, the other two were stale. Not worth neither the calories nor the money.
Disappointed by 2 things: 1. Too sweet but nothing is new for Ansel's places. He has to cater to american taste. 2. Nothing innovative and very heavy desserts.
Just like the bakery on Spring St. but brighter and better seating space. Almond croissant was amazing. Roasted actual almond crunch instead of ready-cut almond slices. Smells totally different. Was here for the U.P. once and that was an amazing experience. They need better air circulation inside the store though. Heavy oil frying smell gives me headache.
Absolutely delicious watermelon soft serve!
It's iconic, even if you don't want to eat anything you may be lucky enough to run into Dominque working in the kitchen (like I did, and was so star struck I couldn't do anything but smile like a dork!) I ended up caving and getting a DKA, t'was delicious!
I really felt like this was an institution where I got food where the quality matched what I was paying. It was NOT like one of those cute boutiques that makes things sound really good and you eat it and it is not as good as it sounds. On the contrary, each dish is so enticing that I ended up going twice on the same day to make sure I would be able to write a fair review of how good the food was. I highly recommend the blueberry brioche. I also had a coffee and the squid ink/egg creation which was really cool if you want the experience of eating something unique but the flavors were not as sublime as that of the blueberry brioche.
Had the cold brew ice cream. Was good ice cream in a hand made cone. However, found a black curly nose hair in bottom of the cone...so gross
Small space with limited seating but wonderful desserts.
Amazing and delicious pastries! Totally worth a visit if you're in New York. The decor of the shop is simple and nice, with comfortable seating area for people who wish to come here and chill or read a book. The counter staff was fast, friendly and very polite. The selection of pastries here are great and very unique. Not the usual you'd find outside. So many fascinating pastries, I wish I could try them all! I would recommend the matcha beignets! They're better than the ones I've tried in the famous cafe du Monde in New Orleans! They heat up the beignets for you which makes it even better! It is crispy on the outside and warm and chewy on the inside. The Nutella croissant was also pretty good. It was a great cafe overall!
What could have been a great pastry was ruined by poor reheating technique. I could tell right away they microwaved the cinnamon bun I ordered. It had that soggy texture you get when you microwave any buttery pastry. They should have thrown it in an oven instead. I’d recommend getting it cold. Probably would have still had the flakey layers that way. I would recommend the DKA instead.
no need to over think and explain.. the legendary Dominique Ansel desserts + some delicious food before or after the desserts
I don't get it. They have these smart looking chefs making the food, but the staff they have working at the counter are clueless ghetto losers.... I have been in this cafe while they did job interviews and it was embarrassing.....
Always a delight coming to DAK! The space is more open with much indoor and outdoor seating, and there is plenty of baked goodies to choose from -- both sweet and savory! In the summer, the soft serve counter opens up for a cooling respite during the hot summer months! Come for breakfast, lunch, or afternoon snack.
Five stars - always a a treat
I was on a quest to try that watermelon soft serve. My BF and I ventured over to Dominique Ansel one hot Saturday afternoon. Before we hopped on the ridiculously long line, we asked if the watermelon soft serve was even available. That's when they they told us that it was actually at Dominique Ansel Kitchen. So we schlepped ourselves over to that location, and got to try it. We ordered at the to-go window outside, where the person serving us seemed like she'd rather be anywhere else but there. She couldn't even be bothered to lend me a pen to sign the receipt. Anyway, we realized that there were seats inside, so we brought our treat indoors in the AC to enjoy. I thought that it was going to be more like a sorbet, but it was just creamy watermelon soft serve. It wasn't bad but it wasn't really refreshing for a hot day. It's really just overpriced ice cream ($10) served in a slice of watermelon. Either way, I'm still glad I got to try it.
This place was really nice to take a break and relax. The pastries we ordered were really delicious! They weren't too sweet and the texture was incredible. Would definitely go back here again.
Service is great but a bit disappointed w the dessert.
Constant quality and great product
The desserts are absolutely delicious. I've never been truly thrilled about baked goods. But this place is good and will leave you craving for more. Today I went in as a courier to pick up for a delivery. The baked goods looked so good behind the counter that I had to take some pictures. Then I asked the cashier to pick her favorite so I could buy it. I forgot what she said it was, but it was delicious. I definitely have to go back for that and find out what it is. But that is a different story. When I reached my drop off, I told the customer thank you for giving me the opportunity to discover that spot, and that the food looked delicious. He responded that he never been there either, someone at work ordered it and he had to get some again and even offered me a cookie. If one thing is for sure, this is viral food at its best. Keep up the good work.
Of course it's a 5 star... you can not go wrong with Dominique Ansel. Every time I step into one of his shops I find something new that I must try and soon becomes my new favorite.
Holy moses this place is good. So I'm not really a pastry "guy" but it turns out the reason for that is just that I'd never been to this joint. They have a "laminated" blueberry thing that blew me away. I'm glad my partner dragged me in here and I happily recommend it to everyone and anyone who enjoys a nice baked good. The coffee is also fantastic. The bad news is this: now that I've been here other bakeries are dead to me.
Very cute place. Small but very creative with their space. Food was good.
Everything tastes as good as it looks and everything looks great! We came here after my birthday dinner and it was definitely worth skipping dessert at the other restaurant! We finally understand why our friends keep coming back here to order their holiday party desserts! It is also recommended as a great lunch spot too. We will be back!
Skipped dessert at a nearby French restaurant to come here. We showed up 30 minutes before closing but they still had a nice selection of cakes and pastries. The cappuccino sufficed but was far from great.....Don’t expect great coffee drinks.
Good dessert, kind of slow but is worth it
We came here looking for after dinner dessert on a Friday a few weeks ago. We ended up looking around and leaving without anything. The prepared desserts in the case didn't look super fresh/exciting and neither did the made to order desserts. The spot has a stadium-esqe seating configuration plus a few outdoor seats (but it was chilly) I think this spot may be better in the am, so I will give it another go. I really like the Dominique Ansel Bakery layout in Soho much better. They have very nice pastries besides the classic cronut and their back garden is great in the summer.
I was informed it was "pie night" 5m after queuing; bad event management? Didn't get to taste anything
Love that it's laid back and not mobbed like the bakery.
Phenomenal pastries! Great sandwiches and salads. Plus picnic tables out front to relax and enjoy.
This place is whimsical, in the vein of how a dessert shop should be. The Bakery is great but I love the design of this space. They have a great selection of baked goods and desserts and the ice cream kiosk has some good flavors. I suggest the last option, which is a combo of the first two (forgot the name) but it's pretty great.
Interesting place, recommend it.
Shout out to the server at the ice cream window! She was great and patient during the NYC Pride Parade. The What-a-Melon did not disappoint! Loved it!
Modern French bakery with good selection but overpriced pastries, mediocre coffee, subpar cleanliness and cold service. Its $6 garlic croissant is very disappointing and overprided. Given its very dirty floor and seat cushions observed, I will be concerned about its cleanliness in the kitchen.
Service is efficient but not very present...Decided to stop in mid summer when I was passing by the neighborhood. Was dragged here one other time in December. Lines are shorter than at the primary location but both times the staff were running around frantically. Don't know where the other cashier was but they need more employees out front for what they're charging...Unfortunately soft serve was closed so I got an almond croissant. Good but very heavy, couldn't finish it. The cinnamon roll was small for the price and left something to be desired...The actual roll had little flavor. Cronut hype keeps people coming back
Dope and unique bakery.
Truffle cheese cake :)
Truffle honey somethin-er-other cheesecake was amazing!
Next level pastries! Very nice surprise, stumbled upon this Sunday morning while looking for something small to nosh. Careful, might go broke here ;-)
Their baked goods are amazing. Seating here is limited.
Delicious, creative, fun dessert menu in an intimate setting – face to face with the chefs. Can’t miss for sweets lovers, with a menu that changes twice per year
Rude staff member at the cashier. No respect what so ever. Be ready when its ready . this is how they talk.
If you want a perfect kouign amann, go to Dominique Ansel Bakery instead.
There is a lot of seating and it's staggered which is different. They keep the space relatively clean. I love the photo strip on the wall. The servers there are accommodating and are able to answer questions and patiently wait until you decide. The macrons are creative and baked very well. They are delicate but and crisp. The filling is just thick enough. They aren't overly sweet. The garlic croisstant needs more salt and flavor. The pieces of roasted garlic adds something to the pastry but a sprinkle of salt would be nice. Don't forget to get the DKA. It's a nice place to stop by and enjoy a treat.
For a bakery, and baker, with such a reputation this location was disappointing. It's poorly laid out (that grab and go island in th middle of the service area makes it impossible for more than 2 people to manoeuvre), and felt trashy; looks dirty and thrown together. We had various croissants and a DKA. The croissants were all mushy and soft, like they had been microwaved. Nice to sit outside, but otherwise go to the SoHo location where you'll at least feel like you made a special trip for a reason.
Must try the DKA
A unique array of desserts, great service and nice people working there. Order and pay for soft serve outside separately.
Our recent visit to NYC had been planned for months and part of our trip included our internet order of THE Cronut! After refreshing the internet page for a minute before the opening of the order time, I was able to enter my order of the February flavor. Waited 2 weeks to taste it and boy was it worth the wait! We arrived to the bakery on an early afternoon and found a table for our group of 4. Tasted the pavlova as well and it was amazing. We make it at home but having a pro pavlova was eye opening! Truly a highlight in our family trip!
Very nice staff. Delicious pastries!
I am leaving a review for their creative ice cream selections. This one is served on a real slice of watermelon. I've tried the burrata soft serve as well and that was delicious too. I recommend this place for people who have sweet tooth-or teeth.
The only really good croissants in nyc
Fabulous Freshly Baked Goods: Brown Sugar DKA; Blueberry Laminated Brioche; Cannele de Bordeaux - No Cronuts Sold at This Location -Sadly, terrible service received - Will skip this location and head over and happily stand in line at Dominque Ansel Bakery from now on!
I only had the burrata ice cream, but it was amazing!!
We frequent this location for their events. Being a dessert foodie, we've gone to 2x UP tastings, 1x PIE event, and numerous one offs here. DAK never fails and always leaves us satisfied. If you love French pastries with a twist, do visit here.
No bakery beats Dominique Ansel. Try the DKA, by far the best pastry on their menu. The chocolate mousse cake is also delicious.
you got to have a croissant.
Great pastries and savory dishes. The fennel salami salad was very good as were the Madeline's and sausage lentil soup. The seating arrangement and decorations are very unique. There is stadium like seating on one side of the cafe. Definitely worth a stop for a quick bite.
Nice service. I'd recommend getting the s'mores made to order or the hazelnut Madelines. Croissants look delicious and there's an ice cream window outside of the shop for the summer.
The croissant are beautifully light and very good coffee. Wasn't brave enough first time round to try some of the more unusual treats on offer but I'll be back....
Wonderful pastries, desserts & Food, over-all! No item is cloyingly sweet. They are subtle & nuncanced flavors along with divine textures. One of THE Best Bakeries in NYC and I do get around!
Good but probably overpriced
Very very tasty sweet treats. The matcha beignets are the best beignets we've had. They put café du monde in NOLA to shame
Came for the watermelon soft serve which was unique to this location only, not available at the bakery. We got there early in the day on a Saturday and there was no wait or line. There were plenty of seating available so we were able to sit, relax, enjoy and snap pics for the gram. The actual dessert is pretty good. The taste and consistency is somewhere between soft serve and an Italian ice, I would have to say. It's a refreshing unique dessert for a hot summer day and its presentation is really cute. Although $10 is really steep for a small dessert. The actual watermelon slice is huge but the soft serve part is not, I'd say. I wouldn't say it's worth $10 but this is also Dominique Ansel. These are bougie treats. I would still get it again in the summer as it's a nice treat to help cool off.
I think the Dominique Ansel in Japan is better, their cronuts are better, there's still cronuts in the afternoon (sometimes), and no lines. But this is the exact opposite- long lines, no cronuts in the afternoon, and not as tasty. The cronuts ($6) here don't seem to be as flakey and crispy- maybe it's because they have filling inside of it. For August 2018, they had key lime flavored cronuts. They also change their cronut flavors every month, but there's a 2 limit per person. So bring all your coworkers, friends, and family haha. They do have some beautiful and creative looking desserts though, such as the mango coconut tart ($8). It was also pretty good- not too sweet with soft juicy mango pieces, and a nice coconut paste (?) underneath to balance it.
Good selection of well-executed menu — I wanted to try everything! The patio looks inviting, especially now in the Spring; the inside space, on the other hand, is stadium style and can be a little awkward climbing up and down on the "bleachers". Must-try: their soft serve on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays!
The best bakery in NYC
Normally when I pass by here it’s on a Saturday and way too packed for me to go inside. I went here on a Tuesday afternoon though and it was empty! My friend and I shared a grapefruit tarte and it was amazing! The shop is very small with not much seating but if you can stop by on a weekday you’ll be fine. I would recommend!
I assumed that DAK would be very good, based upon having going to the original Dominique Ansel. What I did not expect is that it would be tremendous! Its a given that the deserts were excellent, but I was very impressed by how nice my savory chicken pesto sandwich was. Cannot recommend enough.
Vert good pastry and nicer staff
Great service with very friendly staff and workers. The place gives you lots of sitting area in the back which is good to enjoy some deserts and drinks. Some of their stuff is a bit over priced for the portions. Their cronuts were really really good, but it's only if you can line up to get one.
Delicious treats! Absolutely delicious.
I recommend you to have your restaurants SA8000 certified. Your employees deserve a good treatment. Then your dishes would taste better.
It's all very delicious.not your average bakery.
These canneles changed my mind about french pastries! Super cute spot between Meatpacking and West Village for a catch-up with friends.
Very nice crossiants although they don't have cronuts there anymore
Went to pie night. Hyped up, expensive, photogenic, but actually not very good. Trying each "slice"(mush on my plate) was good enough for me to feel done with the flavors after one bite. The cider wasn't great, and the wine wasn't good. On the plus side, everyone was incredibly nice... But I won't be doing this next year. I'm sure you won't run out of customers in NYC blindly trying your food though I hope you actually improve the quality to make the price worth something.
It is just popular.
While the food was good, I feel that it was too hyped up. With all the talk of their 'cronut' and amazing chocolate chip cookies, I expected more. Not to say that what I had wasn't great, but just that standing outside for a cronut wasn't that good.
Excellent service, very helpful staff, high quality. Price very reasonable. Inventive concoctions, seasonal variations and a decent variety. We hope to return!
The best patisserie bakery in nyc... ha da down. Be warned that there is a huge line/que to be served and once it’s gone... it’s gone!
Great staff,very friendly, fantastic desserts.
Good place to get quck meals and desserts
Prices are ridiculous, only good if you are looking to impress someone by going to the place that invented the Cronut, or are a gourmet with money burning a hole in your pocket. If you eat there, you are crammed into a postage stamp sized area with a dozen or so others. Everything is very attractive, but again, do you really want to spend that kind of money? If your purchase is to go, check the package before leaving the store: when you pay $4 each for 4 chocolate chip cookies (not kidding), make sure you don't get 3 (what happened to me).
Good food. But Very overpriced. DKA is Ok, but no more. I had DKA with salted caramel ice cream - not impressed. Croque Mondieur was delicious. Haven't tried pastries
