1 Dominique Ansel Bakery

You've probably heard about Dominique Ansel's flaky, delicious cronuts, but if you're more of a cookie type of person, the cookie shots are your calling. The shot-glass shaped soft cookie is served with their delicious, cold Vanilla Milk. Dominique Ansel's Spring Street bakery is usually bustling all day, so coming in early to avoid the crowds is a must.
