    Small black and white cookie. Excellent! I have never liked the B&W before but love it. The guy who assisted me was really sweet (no pun here) and that's why I bought anything at all.

    cupcakes are a bit sweet for my liking, but their snack cakes are spot on. Definitely recommend their lemon snack cake (others call them twinkies). They make customize fondant cake too. $2.95/cupcake

    You're going to want one of the swiss rolls, but it turns out Yodels made by professional bakers taste like Yodels. If you want your mind blown, try the pecan bars instead.

    The people who work at Empire are fun/pleasant to deal with before you've had your coffee—rare to find in NYC. And the tip jars question makes me laugh every time. Also Stumptown coffee a major plus.

    Make sure to try the red velvet twinkie (not its official name) and the home made twix bar (the workers suggested that one). Both are extremely delicious.
