    If you're in the market for a Cronut, skip the line with a little advanced planning. Reserve up to 6 Cronuts for pickup 2 weeks out on Mondays at 11am. Reservations go quickly, so no dilly-dallying.

    Been here 3 times, never early enough to try a Cronut, but there are so many other things to try! The cookie shot was the coolest thing I had! Shot glass made of cookie with shot of vanilla milk

    Everything you've heard about the cronut before is true. In fact, it doesn't make it any justice! There are pastries, and there is the cronut. It plays on a league of its own. Had the pear and sage

    Ohhh the Cronut – this trendy hybrid attracts a line at 7am before opening but is well worth the early wake up and wait. Enjoy this innovation or any other famed treat in the lovely outside seating.

    Come approximately an hour before the bakery opens to guarantee yourself a Cronut. Come at around 2 PM for a cookie shot. The Frozen S'mores and DKA are good too. Penguin marshmallow doesn't float.

    Ice cream marshmallow, pear cream cake and cherry black forest cake. Sweetness, appearance and taste of desserts - make you speechless. Be sure you go there before 8 am to have special croissants..

    Everything this bakery produces basically is crispy/crusty shell on the outside and soft/chewy in the inside.From the torched frozen smores to the DKA.Don't miss the flourless chocolate pecan cookie.

    The frozen smores are really cool! a bit pricey, but worth trying at least once! it's marshmallow, toasted when you order it, around a crunchy chocolate layer with vanilla ice cream in the center.

    Perfect little egg sandwich & fresh Madeleines were delectable. Family waited on Cronut line and said it was worth it. One flavor only per month so check ahead if you have picky eaters with you.

    Fantastic place. Queue up for the Cronut. It is a hundred percent worth it. The Madeleines are made fresh as you order them, and the croissants are probably better than some you'd get in Paris.

    The mastermind chef is always breaking new ground, but he nails all the basics as well. Order the just-baked madeleines when they're available, and don't sleep on the Perfect Little Egg Sandwich. Read more

    In the dessert world, pastry chef Dominique Ansel is king. But among his must-try confections, the combination doughnut/croissant reigns supreme. Get there before 7 a.m. to nab one. Read more

    The cronuts live up to the hype. Wasn't sure about the Caribbean Rum Raisin (Nov '14), but they are simply amazing. DKA (Kouign Amann) IS a close second. The coffee is great, too.

    1. Be prepared to queue for cronuts (5.5$) 1-1.5h even on weekdays! 2. There is a possibility to pre-order on the web-site. 3. Crispy outside, great filling, smooth texture.

    U have to be there when they open early in the morning so u can get everything u want 💔 everything was sold out except for the frozen s'mores and they were heartbreakingly good.

    the cronut is absolutely worth trying, even though it may not be for everyone. (also try the DKA!) if you place a large order in advance you won't have to wait in line!

    Dominique was my pastry chef for 7 years before opening his own bakery. I love to pop in for some flaky DKA, or a special seasonal treat for my wife. If I’m lucky he sometimes sends me a cronut!

    So I didn't get to try a cronut (this time) but I was able to try many of the other AMAZING items on their menu, and I was not disappointed. Anything you order will satisfy. Dominique Ansel was there!

    The chocolate chip cookie shots filled with their vanilla milk blend are actually life-changing. They're worth however many hours you have to wait or children you have to sell.

    My first visit was to pick up a Cronut, but it's since become my go-to quick breakfast spot when I'm in the area. The croissants are flaky and delicious. The staff is welcoming and knowledgeable.

    I know everyone talks about the cronut, but the real star here is the kouign amann aka "DKA!" And don't forget the butterscotch eclair. Best bakery in NYC, hands down!

    Don't want to wait in line? Order cronuts in advance! You can either roll the dice by calling the bakery at 11am for 2 weeks in advance, or order in bulk (minimum of 50) a month in advance!

    The Cronut™ is the creation by Chef Dominique Ansel that many have described to be a croissant-doughnut hybrid. It is trademarked product only available here. Beware of imitations.

    A classic French bakery from the man who reimagines classics. Even if you're not lucky enough to get a Cronut or Cookie Shot, try the madelines, the DKA, or the frozen smore, honestly, pick anything

    1) Blanc de Blanc--Tahitian Vanilla between 2 soft, milky ricotta cookies w/ salted honey inside 2) Sugar-crusted kouign amann (super buttery croissant) w/ ice cream in the middle. $6, off the menu

    If you do not have an American palate (i.e. uber sweet tooth) skip Cronut & DKA; get a regular croissant (possibly the best I've had outside France) - the other two were way too sweet to be enjoyable.

    Totally recommend the cronut if you have time to wait in line, if not the DKA is just as delicious! Frozen s'more is good too! Get coffee if Anthony is working, he makes drinks like nobody's business

    The cookie shot and DKA are both amazing. I didn't get to try a Cronut but I hear the DKA is just as good, and they're available all day - no waiting in line.

    "good at pretty much everything–that includes sorbets, which are dense and creamy and come in flavors like green apple and raspberry. Our tip? Top your scoop with baby meringues for a dollar extra."

    While everyone knows this as the Cronut Bakery, You can't go wrong eating anything here. I highly recommend the DKA, the Madelines, the Frozen s'more on a hot day, or any of their seasonal treats!

    Didn't make it for the cronuts or the cookie shot, but the frozen s'mores was gooey and the ice cream inside was delish. Also tried the flourless cookie which was chewy.

    Eat this, always, but especially if you see it coming warm + fresh out of the oven. Promise it will be the best thing you put in your mouth all day. #thatsnotwhatshesaid

    Will not comment on the Cronut & the chocolate chip cookie shot. I'm just here to say that I went on a Sunday and they had Cronuts till about 1pm, & the cookie shot line started around 2:45pm.

    Skip out on the touristy cronut. Get the DKA (“Dominique’s Kouign Amann”) which is like a croissant but with a delicious sweet filling. The other desserts aren't bad as well. And it's always packed.

    Cooke milk shot: awesome awesome cookie and vanilla infused milk. When you order it, ask for the milk to go and pour it yourself. Gives you way more milk

    Roasted butternut squash soup with cinnamon marshmallows... wow! and... their famous DKA, which is a lightly caramel coated croissant like pastry which may be one of the best things i've ever tasted.

    So having shown up WAY too late for a cronut, I settled for a DKA and while pricey ($5.72 for a tiny muffin-sized thing), can't imagine the cronut could trump it for flavor, texture and overall WOW 😍

    The Tuscan salad sounds great in theory but too much yellow frisée as the only "green" in this salad with a few chunks of salami and a couple white beans. Overall "meh". Baked items look awesome.

    Croissants- excellent. Mind blowing? The DKR!! It's croissants hotter sibling. Outside- Sweet & crunchy. Inside-. Amazingly flaky. If you are lucky enough to get the CRONUT do it. Croissant + donut

    The cronuts are as mindblowing as the hype suggests. Worth the line? Once, yes. Their other pastries (DKA, newly unveiled souffle) are delightful. Dominique and the staff are friendly also.

    Dominique Ansel left Daniel Boloud’s restaurant Daniel to start his own bakery in Soho, and has since gained a following for his decadent mini-meringues and freshly baked to order madeleines.

    Want a delicious cronut? Inclement weather is your friend, as the line becomes much shorter! ☔️❄️ Out of cronuts? The cookies here are phenomenal as well! 🍪

    If you're not willing to stay in line early in the morning don't go at all. The cronut is sold out by 10AM and nothing savory after 4PM. Don't waist your time! There's a François Payard 2 blocks up.

    By far, the DKA is better than the Cronut! It's actually the best DKA I've ever eaten in the US! Skip the Cronut line, by getting a Cronut Pass, or coming here outside of work days.

    If you're seeking the glorious croissant doughnut Cronut, be aware they sell out within an hour every morning and the queue begins at 7:30am. Or you can pre-order 1 week in advance.

    HuffoPo says if getting a cronut, "May we at least suggest you also purchase a DKA? It is the chef's take on a kouign-amann, a French pastry with layers of butter and sugar. It's fabulous." Read more

    It's small but mighty. Frozen vanilla ice cream with chocolate wafers is surrounded by marshmallow and torched Baked Alaska style for $7. Cronuts sell out early. Nutella Milk Bread.
