Time Out says

Actor Pauley Perrette, best known as Abigail Sciuto on TV's NCIS, opened this Southern-style bakery as an homage to her late mother, Donna Bell. The Alabama housewife's visage is found in old framed photos hung throughout the quaint café, also outfitted with vintage wallpaper, gaslight lanterns and a wrought-iron chandelier. Sweet tooths can dig into homespun goodies, including red velvet cake and Mississippi mud pudding, while those craving a savory snack can opt for deviled-egg sandwiches, mac and cheese, and pimento-cheddar-chive biscuits.

Obsessed with this hole in the wall bakery!  It's hard to find Southern hospitality and in this concrete jungle, but Donna Bell's Bake Shop succeeds.  The chocolate chip cookies are some of the best in this city, and I love their Mississippi Mud Bars and corn muffins.  Their selection changes daily, but don't worry, you'll have a hard time choosing!  Oh, and they do whole cakes to order.  My coworkers still talk about the chocolate-strawberry-funfetti one from last year! 


Super decadent, hole in the wall bakery. It's a grab and go kind of place. I light up whenever my office gets sweets from here. They also have amazing biscuits that they use for their breakfast sandwiches too.

Would like to know when Miss Perrette is going to be at the shop next. Would love to see her in person and get her autograph. I Love NCIS won't miss it for anything. Get mad when it isn't on for other shows. God Bless You Miss Perrette. 5 stars Was so happy to see Miss Perrette on Rachel Rays show. Now I can go and eat some of her cooking.

Saw Polly on Rachel Ray this morning and viewed the website and it all looks so delicious. They need to add more than bars and cookies to online store for those of us not in N.Y. I want bisquits!!! Please note I gave this 5 stars but jeeps going back to the 3...don' t know what thats about. Next time I go to NY I will stop in....the chicken pot pue and cocunut cake and bisquit look out of this world!!!!
