Momofuko Milk Bar
Pastry whiz Christina Tosi conjures up homey sweets at this bakery spin-off down the block from Momofuku Ssäm Bar. East village hipsters, fawning foodies and in-the-know tourists line up for the cultish goodies, including crack pie (toasted oat crust with a gooey butter filling), cereal-milk soft serve and compost cookies made with pretzels, potato chips, coffee, oats, butterscotch and chocolate chips.

The place is normally kind of crowded, and expect to pay for a lot of cool branding. That being said, the amount of sugar and deliciousness is off the charts. There are so many options, and they are all so good - this place sort of requires multiple trips or an insane binge. The shakes and pies are stand out stars but really you can't go wrong. There are now multiple locations, and a few re-sellers, so I certainly recommend giving it a try - even if you don't want to wait for it.

Yummmm. If you've got a sweet tooth this place is for you. The line is a little daunting but it's worth it. I got the crack pie and it's delicious. Addictive! And so cheap for such great desserts. Need to go back!

Give birthday-cake flavored anything a shot here: truffles, cookies or even a real-deal slice of cake. Reasonably priced, you can't go wrong sampling any of the delicious treats, especially their "crack pie," to which you'll undoubtedly soon be addicted.
