On October 12, 2013 my husband, my best friend and I headed into New York City for a Sweets Tour of the East Village. We visited 9 sweets shops, 2 bars, 1 restaurant and a Starbucks. Let's just say it was a fun, belly filling day!
I've been wanting to go on a Sweets Tour for over a year now and we just never got it together. Then, one day I was watching Good Morning America and they had a feature on a newly released book called New York Sweets by Susan Pear Meisel. I ordered it that night and started planning our tour.
We choose one section of Manhattan to visit, the East Village. Throughout our travels, we came across some AWESOME sweet shops. We tried something at each place and I was able to photograph the whole thing.
This will be a 5-day blog series of the shops we visited and the foods we taste tested. I hope I satisfy your sweet tooth and if you have any questions or inquires about the places we visited, please feel free to leave a comment or email me.
The first stop of our tour is at the Doughnut Plant. These were THE BEST doughnuts I have ever tasted, not heavy, not greasy, just PERFECT!
