One of the great things about my co-workers is the love we share for all things sweet and sugary. Whenever we have the chance to work together (we are located in ATL and NYC) we always plan our days around what we are going to eat and what we can have for dessert at these locations. My last trip to NYC was no different and on my last day there we actually planned lunch around dessert! We were good and had a healthy salad for lunch on the way to the way to Magnolia's Bakery - the sweetest place on earth! From the minute you hit the curb on the corner you can smell the sweetness from the bakery and it literally sucks you in.
It is the quaintest bakery I have every visited and trust me I've been to more than my share! With chalkboards displaying all the menu items, large old fashioned canisters holding supplies and the wainscoating all around in a creamy white, the place is more than inviting.
We were very methodical in ordering our sugary delights and when they came wrapped up in a little box, we were like kids at christmas.
I was able to get one pic before we literally gobbled them up.
Then we went outside and watched through the window as they completed the next set of delciousness being prepared. We wondered for a minute if they made home deliveries, especially of their cakes. Then the sugar started to kick in and we could no longer stand still and started the walk back to the office.
Moral of the story: When in NYC make sure you visit Magnolia's!!
