Downtown pastry darling Christina Tosi brings her cultish sweets to the Upper West Side with this fourth location—the largest yet, with 20 seats. Find her signature treats (crack pie, compost cookies, cereal milk shakes), alongside Stumptown coffee. The bakery does its own version of the Momofuku empire's famed pork buns: Here they're made with slow-roasted pork shoulder seasoned with hoisin and sriracha. Vegetarians can opt for buns stuffed with braised shiitakes, caramelized onions and smoked red-chili pepper flakes. Get either with a soft-poached, deep-fried local egg.

OK OK OK I know I will get slapped for saying it, but I don't really get the cereal milk thing. However, Crack Pie is something I can get behind in a big way.
I'm literarily addicted to Crack Pie. If so sweet, but so addictive, they weren't kidding when they named it. The first time I had it, I had a sugar crash and had to take a nap!
This place is awesome. If you want something sweet and unusual then this is the place for you - their cornflake ice cream is fantastic, if a tad on the extreme side. Better for sharing than going whole hog by yourself!!
