Dominique Ansel Bakery

Dominique Ansel honed his skills as executive pastry chef at Daniel for six years before opening this American and French patisserie. Caramelized croissants, miniature pastel meringues and madeleines make up the sweet selections at the counter. But the café also serves savory offerings, like roasted butternut squash soup and a pork club sandwich with pickled eggs, tomatoes and spicy mayo on sourdough.

I have been recommended this place for a while, and decided to go there. They were sold out on cronuts but I decided to try two of their famous desserts, fried smores ( which i really recommend) and cookie shot with milk! I have also tried the salted caramel eclair, which was delicious! I would recommend going there! 


Ever since the cronut craze, I’ve heard people say that Dominique Ansel is overrated, but I completely disagree. I still find it to be a wonderful and trustworthy bakery to stop by on a Saturday morning. While I did buy into the frenzy and wait in line a few times for a cronut, I actually prefer a lot of their other baked goods over the cronut. The DKA (Kouign Amann) is a must-buy for anyone wanting to try one of their signature pastries. All of the pastries I’ve tried have been impeccably made and have never been overly sweet (something I detest).

I went to Dominique Ansel Bakery on a Saturday early afternoon, which maybe wasn't the best idea: The place was packed, and I waited about 20 minutes in line. But the raspberry beet tart was worth the wait. It was beautiful: covered in a hot pink gel and topped with fresh raspberries and swirls of beet. Definitely a pricier treat, since I paid $6.50 for it, but I would do it again. I've heard so much about the sage brownie, but I didn't see it! The staff wasn't the friendliest or most attentive group, but I suppose I wouldn't be either if I facing a mob like that.

The cronuts and cookie shots here are to die for! They can't be matched, and they're well worth the queue. I went on a rainy day and there was still a queue, but a lot shorter than the normal queue!
