    Best salty chocolate chip cookies I ever had. Beware: no espresso-based drinks, only drip coffee but by stomptown. Also the smell is delicious.

    If shortbread is your thing, try the Stumptown Shorty. Dont like gluten? Then take a bite out of the nut cookies - pistachio is our favorite. #8 on Tejal Rao's 10 Best Pastry Shops in New York

    We dig their salted chocolate chip cookies and Old Salties. Bike there (bring your helmet in) and get 10% off your purchase, and 50% off coffee and tea if you show them your East River Ferry ticket.

    Drop in on the new Ovenly shop, just steps from the water. It's a sweet space to try a tall glass of fresh lemonade and one of the quirky pastries such as the black-olive shortbread: Read more

    I was really excited about this place..had the Brooklyn blackout cake..and there went my excitement. Dry and the chocolate ganache was leaking taste. Say because it looked amazing!

    I could smell the baked goodness from 2 blocks down the street. Take it to go and enjoy in the WYNC park next door overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Olive oil pumpkin bread.

    The best gluten-free bakery in NYC (and the best peanut butter cookie I've ever had). Chocolate truffle and pistachio agave are insanely rich.

    Love the pistachio cookie and savory scones. They upgraded their coffee (stumptown coffee and better trained staff), much better cappuccino then 1 year ago.

    It's an adorable place with average baked goods and gorgeous light. Had the cupcake and while it was adorable and green that's all it was. Extremely dry with a butter cream that fell off in chunks. :(

    Right by the waterfront park. The peanut butter cookies are crazy good and plenty of delicious gluten free pastries. No espresso based coffees.

    Ovenly's cream-cheese-frosting-topped gingerbread cake is a melt-in-your-mouth combo of brown sugar, molasses and spice. And cutting a slice is way easier than dismantling a roof. Read more

    If you're here, get the Chocolate Chip Cookie (salted), and pair it with a small cup of normal milk or almond milk.

    $5 for a 1 inch slice of flour less chocolate cake? I'm sticking to the salted chocolate chip, thank you.
