    Line is usually extremely long or even out the door when they start serving the cookie shots at 3 - so do yourself a favor and show up late afternoon (once you've worked up an appetite from shopping on Broadway!)

    Famous for their cookie shot glasses filled with milk - note that they only start serving these at 3 pm!! So don't make the mistake of waiting in line only to find out that they aren't making these yet

    Cronuts or the lesser known DKA's are amazing! Almost like a caramelized croissant!

    The eggs are steamed, Japanese-style, to a fluffy, custard-like consistency, then draped with a thin layer of Gruyère and tucked into a housemade brioche bun.

    The apple tarte tatin—a single-serving round of crust topped with an inch-thick ring of deeply caramelized apple—keeps the theme going.

    I had my first Cronut from Dominique Ansel in Tokyo and I loved it. After trying the one in Dominique Ansel in NYC, I would say Asian people may prefer the Tokyo one. The NYC one is still a bit too sweet and the line sometimes is just too crazy. Suggest to get there before 10 if you want to avoid the line. 基本上十点以后就会要排很长的队,cronut好像基本上不会卖完。对于亚洲人来说,纽约店虽然是Cronut发源地但为了适应美国人的口味,貌似还是太甜了。如果有机会去东京的话,去他们东京分店吃可能会觉得更好吃。

    Everything was very tasty. Nice little restaurant at the back where you can eat your cakes. The milk cups cookies are the best! Yummy worth flying back to NYC again. Ooh getting peckish now for DA's yummy food! Best in NYC

    When you hear the name Dominique Ansel your mind go straight to the cronuts, if you want to try the famous cronuts you have to arrive super early and some times make line because they run out super fast, in my humble opinion all the pastry's are superb even the caramel seasoned popcorn worth the walk, everything here is lovely and well done, the take out bags are super cute the only downside is the coffee I think Any coffee chain taste better but always can choose a good bottle of water!

    Like many we were attracted by the reputation of this place and even more curious by the length of the queue. Early on a quiet Tuesday morning there was no queue so curiosity got the better of us. Yes it was very nice, and yes we did try the famous Cronut, but hey, this place is seriously over rated and not worth standing in a queue.

    I am really disappointed as I went twice while I was in New York to try their famous Cronut , but it was sold out !! on my second visit I came to know that they had some inside however the staff refused to sell me one , although I told them I came specially before leaving to the airport and I really want to try it but they were very arrogant and didn't care !! they need to hire people who know how to satisfy and treat their customers .. not because you made a big name and have a long queue it means that you made it. you guys need to train your staff !!!

    My wife and I came here for the cronuts (never had it before!) and we also got the DKA. In my humble opinion, the cronuts were good but not that good that it's worth waiting a long time in line for. The DKA, however, oh goodness, that was definitely our favorite, more than the cronuts.

    Known for the cronut, but don't miss the kouign amann and the chocolate chip cookie shots @ 3PM! We shared one with our 5 year old and really enjoyed each bite! Tight, but worth the wait even with just enough elbow room to sit three!

    I feel that Dominique Ansel's business model at this store is a little deceitful. I should point out that I have been twice to his bakery in Soho and have not been able to buy a Cronut, instead buying other items. The first time, I stayed out in a line outside in freezing temperatures only to be told at the counter, and my problem is that I was not told before the counter, despite an attendant coordinating where we were to stand in line outside, that they were out of Cronuts. I then went earlier, around 11 am, another time I was in Manhattan and also was told at the counter that they were out of Cronuts. I then picked a second item, but the counter attendant told me that I could not order that item until 3 pm, even though I saw plenty of them under the counter before I arrived to the register. I believe that Dominique Ansel intentionally tells his workers not to tell customers that they are out of Cronuts until they arrive to the cash register, and then instructs them to try to sell them something that they did not come to his bakery for. I believe this puts the attendant in a very stressful situation, a situation that they did not create. I think that most people, including me, would be decently ok if his workers let people know clearly on the door or by making the attendants make people aware that they are out of Cronuts because they intentionally only sell them for one or two hours a day to create demand. I would not completely fault that business model. To intentionally hide the fact that they are out of something when they know that people are standing in line to purchase that item, I feel is deceitful, especially when there are so many tourists in Manhattan.

    This is heaven!!!! You can skip a cronut. Omg. Delicious, crispy and fresh. Their lines are long but the employees are fast and friendly. The cronuts are addictive. I suggest to visit early in the morning. The place is small but they have a beautiful patio. Their coffee is strong and good.

    Cronut means half croissant and half doughnut. We ordered a Matcha Passionfruit Mousse Cake and also their signature Cronut. I like the matcha mousse cake more than a Cronut. Still worth to try!

    This is the famous home of the cronut - and the cronut line. If you want cronuts you better come early or order ahead for pick-up. Just a piece of advice, they have a line for cronuts that is usually outside of the shop and someone brings you in when there is space inside. For all other baked goods you can just enter the shop so if you are not there for cronuts don't wait in the line!! The best kept secret at this bakery is the DKA, which is like a croissant on crack. They sort of caramelize the top with brown sugar - it is buttery, flaky and sweet - seriously divine! They come in individual sizes and a DKA cake version, which is an incredible piece to take to a party. The DKA is my personal fav and a must-try!! So delicious we came twice while we were in the city. They also make ice cream sandwiches, we tried the salted caramel ice cream between white chocolate macadamia nut cookies - wow! Perfection! This is a must on your NYC food list, you will not be disappointed!!!

    We went to pick up some cronuts. The craze is still going full force. Lined up 25 minutes before it opened and the line continued to grow. By the time we got into the bakery it was 40 minutes after it opened. It was raining and they were kind enough to bring out umbrellas. They also would occasionally bring out samples for people to try which is very nice of them.This months cronut flavour is ok but I find them too sweet, could do with less filling and icing. I also go the chocolate eclair and it was very good.

    I loved the variety of baked goods and desserts.. You should taste Frozen S'Mores on a stick, macarons, and their popular "Cronut" . Always crowded though !

    If Levain evokes warm and homey, DAB is only global and sophisticated. The gluten free cookies are out of this world, the cronuts one must have at least once in his lifetime, and all the other goodies deserve a try.

    Unique variety of baked goods and desserts, like Frozen S'Mores on a stick, cookie cups, matcha mousse, macarons, and their very popular Cronut (flavors change). Several items change seasonally or weekly. Always delicious.

    I've read tons of comments about this place and I decided to go twice to buy some cronuts. Yes, of course, they're ok but... does it worthwhile to wait a long queue for a overpriced cake? To be honest, I don't think so.

    We ventured into this bakery after reading about their famous cookie shots. Besides the cookie shots, they make other amazing desserts such as macrons, frozen smores, lime-me-up tart, raspberry pavlova, cotton-soft cheesecake, blossoming hot chocolate, mini-me cake, and many other scrumptious treats! We ordered the chocolate chip cookie shots, of course, which is a thick chocolate chip cookie shaped like a shot glass that is lined with melted chocolate. Upon ordering, they fill it with a Madagascar vanilla milk. They also offer Almond milk for those that are lactose intolerant. It was DELICIOUS!!!! :-) We also tried the Raspberry Pavlova, which was very good as well. It was two meringue cookies filled with fresh raspberries and vanilla creme. What's not to love! If you have a sweet tooth, this bakery is DEFINITELY WORTH A VISIT!

    I've heard about this oh-so-famous patisserie in SoHo (Spring & Sullivan to be exact) and went there 4 times! (Once with my Boyfriend, and the remaining 3 times alone). They're well known for their cronuts which sell out by noon (yes, they open at 8am, I believe), DKA (Dominique Koign Amman) and their cookie shot. I never got to try their cronut, but here's what I had so far: 1. Cookie shot - a shot glass made entirely out of cookie dough and baked - or rather, a cookie shot glass - filled with vanilla milk. You may down the entire shot of milk and eat the cookie thereafter, or take small sips while nibbling at the cookie simultaneously but either way ----> PHENOMENAL 2. Chocolate éclair - one of the best éclair I've had to date. Beats even the ones I've tried in Paris. Light choux pastry filled with Rich chocolate cream and coated with a layer of chocolate on the top 3. Mango rose tart - something different for once. I love the very slight tartiness the fresh mango slices give to the moderately sweet tart. The rose "gummies" on the tart contribute to the floral/rose taste without overpowering the taste of the mango. I actually like this the best amongst everything else I've tried 4. DKA - also known as Dominique Koign Amman, is a dense cronut-like pastry (coated with a lot of sugar) that you could either eat on its own, or with a scoop or 2 of ice cream (2 Flavours: vanilla, salted caramel). I had one with a scoop of salted caramel ice cream - which was far too rich and sweet. I couldn't have any more after a few bites. Perhaps vanilla ice cream would have been a better pairing.
