REVIEWS OF Sullivan Street Bakery IN New York

Lauro Ayala

Was great , so impressed

RL Redd

This is my neighborhood bread place Been coming since day one. They renovated and have seating now. Know that since the expansion they close at four now. So for all of.the people who used to pick up bread on their way home to Jersey from work, you.have to get your bread earlier because they are no longer open umtil 7. Great bread, bomboloni, brownies, coffee, tea, soup.

Iain Cooper

Wonderful seeded bread that's just to die for.

Scott Ledger

Good bakery with breads, rolls, and an espresso machine to boot. We stopped for croissant and coffee but a lot of locals were buying interesting loaves of bread.

Adam Burnett

Great selection of bakery foods. Great for a light breakfast. Solid coffee. Awesome staff. We were working nearby for an event and it quickly became the go-to for our breakfasts

Monica Fogg

Some of the best bread you can get in the city, servicing many restaurants around town with their gluten-y goodness. This is not a full luncheonette, but they will pre-made sandwiches at lunch time and always have some flatbreads on tap. With an ever-expanding pastry list, you can grab some goodies on your way out of town. Around the holiday season, their pies and panettone are sublime. Their coffee is strong. They will slice your bread if you ask, and they will sell half-loaves of almost everything. Top of their craft.

Varadarajan Sriram

How good can a custard filled donut taste, right? you will have to try their bombolinis to really appreciate how good these can be. the zuchini topped flatbreat, is a super hit with our family. it is an eye opener to know that very simple ingredients when prepared the right way can be delicious.


Food is good but a bit pricey

David Blaut

Super friendly staff and the bread, pizza and pastries are fantastic If you are in the area make sure you stop buy.

Marissa G

Great bread, coffee and juice


Everything is great!

Brian Mayers

This is one of the best kept secrets in Hell's Kitchen (or as it is now known Clinton). I have to make at least one trip a week.

The Corcoran Group

Easily the best bomboloni in the city. It's a trek to get here, but well worth it.

Chikako Oba

This location is under remodeling. The sign said it will open in few weeks.

Elliot Schwartz

Delicious and distinctive pastries. 5 seats looking out to the street.

Shaya Zamanpour

It's good.

Robert Klarén

Absolutely fantastic. No more words needed.

Jeka Jr

Furniture is dirty, got my pants messed up

Kiara Di Paola

This place is the BOMB! It tastes exactly like my focaccias back in Italy. Bomboloni are so fresh, soft and delicious. Everything smells incredibly gooooood! I’m so in lo e with this place. Today i had 4 focaccias: Pomodoro, zucchini, cavolfiore, potatoes, they were all very very good. They rennovated this location and reopened a couple of months ago, they also have another location in Chelsea but if someone asks me for authentic italian bread, focaccia, bombolini & pastries, this is the place to be!

Michael Hunter

I love baker Jim Lahey's bread books, so visiting his bakery is a real treat. The sweet and savory pastries are a great way to start of the morning on your visit to Times Square. True to form, some of his pizzas are straight out of the cookbooks.

Elliott Fisher

Very tasty bread, croissants, cookies, etc. in a comfortable setting. Bustling but you don’t feel rushed if you want to linger. Super friendly staff. The owner Jim Lahey developed the “no-knead” bread technique. The egg in the egg sandwich has an odd texture.

Darla Webster

Damn good croissants! This place is the best I've had in SF. NY lady loves and has a taste for good croissants and she gives this place a big thumbs up. I was surprised to find the bakery is on the order of years old, but wow did they get the flaky, buttery, oh so delicious croissants right. There is often a line, but moves fast! Not much seating inside or out, but you can easily take the croissants to go. Love it.

Vincent Terranova

Smartest move by management to expand. Great breads, soups and sandwiches. Fantastic workers.

Cassandra Demler

This is some of the most amazing bread and lentil soup I've ever had! I missed the name of the extremely knowledgeable (immediately knew what available was vegan) and kind employee- he closed today (3/29). Fantastic experience overall.

Yilan Zhao

Best bread! So tasty:) Coffee is also just perfect for me

Rebecca F.

Great food and helpful staff in an immaculate environment

Randi Beeber-Luxenberg

Best Bakery in America. Hands down. Best Pastry Creator and Chef, Jacqui Spiegel. Now - America's got real talent!!! Hands down to you for the plethora of the top 5 star restaurants you personally deliver their bread daily!

Heidi Froseth

Omg, this place makes me cry with joy!

David Trangmar

Nice bakery and cafe in a secluded street. Good quality bread on offer. Filled rolls etc looked very appetising.The brioche l had was very tasty. Cake selection good also. Service friendly and nice place to hangout to read the newspaper. Seating outside - bench. If very busy there is another coffee house up the road that looks good.

Lisa Kim

The chocolate croissant was pretty good. Baguette was a bit sour. But I like it. I would like to try some other breads next time

Tracey Scheer

Fresh breads and pastries, eating area enlarged. I found the raisin nut bread strangely spicy. Each bread has a “name” that does not let you know what type of flour or starter etc is in it. I find this pretentious and annoying. You can get miniature versions of many breads. The Italian donuts filled with different flavored custards are a treat.

Patty Zarnowski

Great bread! Great sweet treats! Great sandwiches! You cant go wrong!

Diana Rodriguez

For a bakery they have a great balance between savory and sweet options. There is literally something for everyone all at high quality.

Andrew Markowitz

George Howell coffee ✔️ & the best carbohydrates on Manhattan ✔️.

Angela Song

Rhubarb and goat cheese cookie, and the blackberry and mango treat were tasty. Didn't get to have their esteemed bombalonis, unfortunately.

Jason Knauff

If you like bread or real pizza do NOT miss this spot. A short walk from Times Sq. The Pizza Bianca is fantastic as are the many varieties of pizza and little pastries. I make it a point visit every time I'm in NYC.

Emily Chu

Great place to pick up bombolini (the vanilla one is the best, but seasonal fruit fillings are also offered). Delicious savory sandwiches and sweet pastries are great for weekend brunches! Stop by early for the best selection.

Tracey Huang

Good donut

Gregor J. Rothfuss

i caught it just before a new batch came out and it was still pretty tasty. get it fresh if you can.

Daniel Rothman

It is too hard to try things here. The food looks amazing and tastes great but it is absurdly expensive. Tiny breakfast sandwiches were being sold for around $10?? That blew my mind. If I can go to a bagel shop and get an enormous fresh baked breakfast sandwich for around $5 there is no way I would ever even consider the sandwiches here.

Justin Kiena

Wow! The best bread in NYC. If I know there is a need for bread with dinner, I make sure to take on that responsibility and stop here. I always receive praise for bringing such amazing bread with me.

Brett Cloke

Beautiful setting down a small street. The brownies are absolutely delicious and the coffee was also great. Friendly staff, too! I'd recommend visiting here for a rest if in the area.

Christine Macmillan

Best bread and breakfast sandwiches ever!

Aurora Tecson

one of the best places for bread. tiny but efficient. a good place to go for a bite if you crave bread after a long bike ride by the river. and it's inexpensive.

Elad Schor

Simply the best. This bakery serves super fresh and tasty breads and little pastries. You could eat a whole loaf as soon as you get it. Their winter soups are also delicious. They are a bit pricy however.


Tasty food and great service, worth a detour

Diana L

Never had a cold sandwish this good. Pizza is amazing, again, cold is fine. Excellent coffee. Lovely dessert.

Lexa Foster

I always enter Sullivan Street Bakery with the intention of trying new things but I always leave with a slice of the Bianca bread. The light, porous, and bubbly flatbread is accented by olive oil, coarse sea salt, and rosemary. It pairs well with fancy wines and charcuterie plates but you can also rip it apart in your mouth like a savage.

Alicia VanBebber

Best pastries ever!

van Tsao

Relax and cozy atmosphere with delicious pastry and bread - the ciabatta sandwich is tasty and well balanced

RobQc McCullum

First time in and like to try it again the donuts are not cheap $4 but this is not Dunkin donuts and everything looks great in this place and the coffee smelled really good .

Pei-Hsuen Liao

A really solid bakery all around. Even the simplest items taste divine.

chris megos

Fresh bread, good coffee and a great selection of sweet and savory treats

Guruprasad Nayak

Great flat breads. Try the potato/tomato kind. The thicker tomato bread is good as well. Great coffee. Friendly people. Must try if you're around!

Kerron Lewis

Good stuff

Ammar Mukadam

Excellent bread and chocolate bon bons

Erick Sikkenga

Everything i have eaten there is awesome and so is the staff!

Deborah Riley

Loved it

tom barratt

Great focaccia bread. Unfortunately they changed recipes of the granola and croissants.

Bob Lou

I was able to try goat cheese and rhubarb cookie, a blackberry mango filled desert and a raspberry bomboloni. They were unique in flavor and decent, but it was pricey for the size.

Anna Dvoretskaya

Freshest bread and pastry in the whole of NYC. Absolutely delicious breakfasts and coffee! Cool vibe and simple design, but actually it's all about food here! Perfect spot for a brunch with friends & family. Definitely a must try!

Marco Innao

I cannot believe I found AUTHENTIC bomboloni in my neighborhood in NYC! I was born and raised in Italy, specifically in the region where bomboloni are from, and the cream bomboloni (the original flavor) taste the same! No extra sugar, no cinnamon, none of the other stuff that they usually add here in the U.S. and ruins everything. Not giving five stars only because the chocolate bomboloni are not that good, and I’d like to give a suggestion: in Italy the chocolate bomboloni are actually with Nutella inside. I think your customers would love it if you offered that option too.

Bree Fowler

The best bread in NYC, hands down. Their "pizza" slices are a great snack or light lunch. try the zucchini and potato. The sesame bread is one of my favorites to take home for dinner. If you bake, make sure you try the owner's no-knead bread recipe at home. It will forever change the way you make bread.

Brittany Attride

AMAZING PLACE! I come here during work for lunch or a snack, and their Tuna sandwich special is amazing. Please make this a regular! It has the best lemon oil dressing, pickled onion, and the right amount of salt with the tuna and bread... could have one everyday. Their baked goods are awesome too, just wish the price was lower.

Chaz Hinkle

I do not give many five star ratings... But this gets one. Had breakfast here, and seriously YOU CANNOT GO WRONG. Just pick something. It's ALL good. You will not be disappointed in any of it. Got to meet Jim Lahey as well... What could be better?!?!??!?! My favorite meal of our trip, just when I was least expecting it.

chris lietz

Nice little bakery with great customer service.

Andreea Alexandru

Cute little bakery and coffee shop. The iced cappuccino is delicious and the baristas are very friendly.

Monica Serradell

Amazing products very artisan and with a italian twist. it's more about salty food than sweet treats and I love that because french bakeries focus in sweet stuff

Simon Butler

Wonderful bakery selling Italian inspired breads and pastries. The man who served me was amazingly friendly especially as I visited at 7AM on a Sunday and he told me he wasn't supposed to be working until 9AM! The baguette, croissant and pan au chocolate I bought were delicious as was the bit of the focaccia he encouraged me to try. A must visit if you are in Hell's Kitchen!

Katherine Sharitt

The absolute best!! An egg sandwich and raspberry donut has become our usual Saturday breakfast. Best latte I've had in the city!

Gary Young

As a novice baker I can really appreciate the master craftsmanship here. Worth going out of my way every time I'm in New York.

Veronica Ross

Pricing was a bit strange, some high, some low. Good quality however. Great storefront with lots of seating available

Christian Rodriguez

Great place with amazing sandwiches

Peter J

One of the best bakeries in NYC!! Big loafs of old world bread and an assortment of beautifully crafted pastries, breakfast, and lunch options! I’ve been coming here every day for the last two years and have never had a bad experience. Britney at the desk is extremely helpful and kind! They take Apple pay too!

Caleb Cole

The foccacia pizza made me want to move in next door.

Brandon Loo

Every single piece of pastry is made with love.

Andrew Kofink

Amazing focaccia!! We got one of each, and they’re all great and vegetarian!! Yum!

Jenny Smith

Delicious! We ate breakfast here (take out and sit in) a few days over our Christmas holiday trip. Great selection of breads and pastries and something for all tastes.

Damon Crelia

Small selection of fresh baked goods. The chocolate bomboloni is delicious and the sourdough Pullman loaves are great. Service is inconsistent. Sometimes you're greeted immediately and other times it's as if you don't exist.

Mathieu Vaillancourt

Perfect helthy breakfast, a bit pricey but you pay what you get!

Melanie Wahl

After moving to South Florida, I found that I had kept the menus - see photos - in Googling, I am happy to see that they are opening a Miami location and have agreements with Michelle Bernstein of crumbs on parchment and a few other distributors down here. Zak the Baker is about to have some serious competition. The "pizza" was amazing, as were the bombolini. The mango basil sandwich was one of thr best things I ever ate.

Nate Gaddis

This guy knows his stuff. His breads are made with skill, and have a distinct personality. One of the best bread bakers in the world. If you'd like dessert, pick up his chocolate torta. Very unique texture, and delicious.

Richard Gervais

The best croissant I've ever had outside of France.

Nicole Kramer

Our neighborhood guy who used to work the counter, Clovis, was a speed demon, has been around less often. The new crew knows less about the bread, are slower, and the general ambience of the place is now a snooty Manhattan bake shop rather than the Hell's kitchen hang out it once was. Great if you're from out of the neighborhood and need ten loaves of bread for the week, not so much a quick bite to start your morning anymore.

Aron Romanoff

High quality, expensive.

Emily Moberg

Best bakery! Their breakfast sandwiches and breads are delicious. The raspberry donut is delectable if you are in the mood for something sweet. The new interior is cozy and nice to hang out in.

yacoub hallak

Walked 10 blocks and not to many choices

Matei Ionita

Good espresso, plenty of space, very friendly server.

Justin Chen

Anything here is amazing. Sandwiches are a little pricey at $8, but you are eating every dollar. Fresh bread, unlike any other bakery in NYC. I'd say the bread here is better than Amy's Bread... Dessert options are tasty too.

Aaron Kleyla

Having prepared no knead bread for years, this bakery was a must on my eats list. We stopped in for our daily breakfast pastry. The croissant with vanilla glaze was top notch. The vanilla cream doughnut really was the star of the show. The breads all looked interesting but very darkly baked. Perhaps New Yorkers like their bread dark.

Thomas Luczak

Amazing breads. Love the pizza and the sesamo loaf.

Amit Bhatia

A hidden gem that shines in the shadows of hotel Ink48 in Midtown New York. Bakery offers a great selection of pizzas that you normally don't find in any Pizzeria's or even authentic Italian restaurants. I tried their thin and crispy crust pizza with mushrooms, olives, onions, olive oil, and sea salt. The crust was absolutely perfect and the toppings tasted divine.

Briana Wagner

Had good coffee + local kombucha, read a paper, & had a yummy bread thing stuffed with greens.

Mark Chesterfield

Great baked goods and excellent espresso coffee

John RF

A must visit. Fantastic bread. Good coffee. Breakfast was very pricey, but worth every penny.

Lucio Gianicoli

Great little bakery, offering a range of excellent artisan Italian-style breads, as well as pre-prepared options such as pizzas.

Bob Brennaman

Very good bakery. Had lunch cauliflower bread, and came back for breakfast. Good coffee

Christian Hernández

First go for tacos then make yourself happy with some sweet. Pick chocolate or vanilla, it doesn’t matter.

Eric Montgomery

Best pastries I've ever eaten, the coffee is nothing to write home about. The only bad thing is they occasionally overcook things and of course they do run out. They'll gladly tell you when a new batch will be ready though.

Rasmus Barfred

Best croissant and coffe in town

Tyler Johnson


Kurt Hildebrandt

Some of the best bread in New York, no doubt about it. Stop in for a coffee and treat, then buy a loaf to take home!

Bonnie Urban

Best bread on the Westside

david lawrence

Good food and coffee. Friendly staff

Dominik Skiba

I had a brownie and a little tart. It was good, but a bit pricey like much of the city. Also I didn't like the brownie that much.

Edgar Andrade

Nice place

Frances Choi

They sincerely make bread with love and respect.

Paul Lee

Loved the potato pizza when I used to go to the original Sullivan St location.

Mohammad Mahdian

My favorite bakery in NYC.

Cynan Clucas

Great pastries. Open at 7am on a Sunday too!

Trevor Hateley

This is how you do bread. Thank you Jim Lahey for showing me the way in your books, but there's absolutely no way I can re-create what you do in your shops thanks to the skill of your bakers & temperatures of your ovens. I'll always stop here when I'm in the neighborhood.

Andrea Castillo

Always great!

Jodi Faith

The bread here is flavorful, fresh, and some of the best I've had. I'm not sure which was my favorite the prosciutto or the soft boiled egg or the vegetable. Each sandwich tasted better than the one before.

Bradley Pence

I love this place!

Teresa Scott

Great bread. Great breakfast. Yummy tea. Excellent pastries.

Perry Journey

Amazing hidden gem!

James Wise

A must stop! Some of the best pastries!!

Olivier Fontenelle

This is my favorite bakery in Manhattan. The bread quality is simply amazing, you'll want to come back to try them all. Also for breakfast/brunch try the mushroom and the zucchini flatbread.

Anthony Savarese

Decent place. Bread looked great. Had a small lunch sandwich and a chocolate pastry.

Ian Tracy

Yummy times infinity. Please make authentic, Bavarian-style pretzels!!!!

Keith Polott

Truly excellent baked goods great croissants and fantastic bombolone, but after their latest price increase it's getting a little out of hand. I can't speak for the bread but I can't justify the pastries any more.

boris nahmias

The best kombuchua I have Everest drink and the bread is fantastic believe a french citizen

Marc Pilmann

Very nice little bakery with quality bread and snacks like sandwiches. They offer a choice of good coffee and fresh juices.

Leslie. Puccini

Always such a nice place to stop for a snack, breakfast, coffee, bread, lunch etc!!! It is so clean AND quiet in the middle of crazy Hell's Kitchen!!!

John Dondapati

As someone else already said it - it's simply the best.

Andrew Curran

Phenomenal bakery we found by chance after getting off a cruise ship. Everything they make here is excellent including the coffee!

David W

Strangely about a year ago, we first heard of Sullivan at an excellent restaurant out in Princeton, NJ.Waitress was kind enough to tell us they get their bread from Sullivan. A quick google search revealed owner Jim Lahey's success story was everything I love and support about NYC (sculptor turn baker). Now one year later, Wifey and I get our bread from here almost every week. We walk down from the 90th street to the bakery 'cuz we know we are going to carbo-load for the next hour. We mainly buy any of their sourdoughs and focaccia. I also love their roast beef sandwich!

jonathas lanna valle filho

The most traditional bakery in New York, any restaurant that serves good bread sources their bread from here. It is sad that (their format pizza location on Chelsea closed) but you can still get the best focaccia in the world here and all kinds of breads you can imagine

Erin Clemens

Amazing!! Try the cauliflower flat bread-- you'll die.

Jovanna Banana

Tasty pizza and bread-related goods.

Lora Aroyo

After more than a year being closed for reconstruction, it is finally open. It is by far the best backery in Hell's kitchen and now it has a very pleasant new space to sit and enjoy your food. There is a variety of breads, sweet and savory pasties and some healthy juices,some variety of hot teas and coffee. All of the baked goods are baked in house and are quite delicious and fresh. Unfortunately, it is quite expensive, but for what I tried it seems worth it. No wifi either :((

Doug McMasters

First time here. Loved it. Bread was excellent. And the service was wonderful--we were offered samples.

Abiah Patterson

Excellent hot chocolate!

Chris Welty

Welcome back Sullivan St. Bakery!!! Reopened and remodeled, with a nice quiet space to sit and enjoy your bready goodness. The strecci is the best, try it if you haven't but be sure to leave one for me. Not for the gluten-free, SSB stands in firm opposition to your low carb diet. Try intermittent fasting instead. Simply the best bread anywhere anytime. Light fresh crunchy soft so so good. Not on Sullivan St but w47th! Another discovery thanks to #W42st. Really really great bread. Hands down. Interesting, small selection of other quasi-italian baked goods, all are fresh and deliciousness ranges on personal tastes as some combos are a little odd. The cold pizzas are excellent, try the potato pizza you won't regret it, though your waist might. Coffees and teas, only four seats inside and a bench outside for seating means you aren't likely to eat in. Service has always been friendly but you can walk into an empty shop and leave with a line down the block, so sometimes there's a wait.

Justin Penchina

Everyone is super friendly.

vanessa ritchie

Coffee and the pizzas are delici. Barista is super friendly and it’s cosy as

Marshall Shaffer

Had a delicious slice of cauliflower pizza at the newly reopened bakery and can’t wait to try more items here!

Christine Guillermo

Staff is so warm and friendly. Macchiato has been better than some local coffee shops. Italian donut was ok. Looking forward to trying more baked goods. Restrooms for customers is a plus especially in the city.
