Though this bakery is run out of a proper pink-tinged shop, it's best known to downtown office workers for its Financial District kiosk. (The chocolate stout cupcake topped with espresso buttercream makes a decidedly indulgent alternative to the usual coffee break.) You'll also find Batter's sweets sold at local spots like Trouble Coffee, Ritual, and Jackson Place Cafe. The nine rotating flavors include combinations such as German chocolate cake with coconut pecan frosting and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Though the cupcakes alone are worth the trip, it's the Sand Angel that has inspired the most loyal following: it’s like the chewy, crispy love child of a snickerdoodle and a molasses cookie. Swing by the kiosk for a daily cookie happy hour, from 3 to 6pm.
