    Great crusty bread and nice sandwiches are the hallmark of this neighborhood bakery. Best bakery in the neighborhood.

    I've heard so many people raving about this place that I wanted to try it out myself. We had lunch there with my husband on Sunday - hubby is a huge bread-lover so he had high hopes. The place itself doesn't really appealing from the outside, and when we entered I felt odd: the breads and all the food look gorgeous, but the tables and the sitting area where we finally sat down was kinda creepy, I felt like I was sitting in a school eatery... We ordered 2 slices of pizzas, a bomboloni, and two sandwiches. The staff is kind and friendly, we got our freshly made scrambled egg sandwiches quite quickly. Both sandwiches were great, the Formaggi was really full with cheese, but the Verdura one barely had any veggies. Anyways, the scrambled eggs in both sandwiches were phenomenal! Sadly the pizzas were mediocre and cold. The bomboloni in reality is a very good donut - the dough is absolutely perfect, but I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping for more filling, but there's only literally just about a teaspoon of it in the donut. For almost $4 is definitely not cheap, and the place itself is on the pricey side in general too. I saw more interesting dishes on the menu, so I would go back to try those as well.

    We had lunch here, they take your order at the counter then bring your food to the table. The staff were very friendly, service was quick, and the food was fresh and delicious, we had sandwiches and the bread was excellent, their sandwich offerings for both breakfast and lunch are unique and interesting. Very good cold brew coffee too.

    Met friends for dinner. Had the mixed olives and all 4 fire roasted veggies. Then split 3 pizzas. All were over the top good. Good wine and beer selection too. Great place.

    Of the three places I visited for breakfast on my vacation, this one had the best coffee. The pastries were fresh, and the various breakfast sandwiches and savory items all looked delicious. I had a bite of my wife's egg and pancetta brioche, and the egg was fluffy and was balanced nicely with the pancetta and bread.

    Coronetti, cookies, bomboloni, sandwiches and Fishtown coffee beans. After walking through the Galleries in Chelsea stop here for a quick, fresh reasonably priced snack and espresso. There is wall decorated with customer's art work which was creative and spoke volumes. The jam or cream filled bomboloni are light and fluffy and fresh. Seating at tables and a clean restroom. Order before sitting. The espresso is strong! and served in handle-less cups. Courteous, helpful staff.

    Everything from the Pizza assortments to the home made breads is beyond delicious. One of the most imaginative food places in the city for snacks, sandwiches, desserts and anything else they make. I go out of my way to stop in when I am near by. I go often and once you visit you will too.

    I have now been back 3 times. they have amazing baked goods, super fancy schmancy coffees and a general manhattan hipster vibe. Efficiency of service is not a peak experience by any means so my advice is ... go early!! They have these little savory "somethings" with veggies/onions/smoky meats (they vary in flavor) that are somehow spicy in an awesome breakfasty kind of way I will be back again and again for sure.

    I was attending several events in one day at the New Yorker Festival and needed to ind a place for a quick lunch between events. I just stumbled on the Sullivan St. Bakery and went in. It was lunch time and there was a line, but it was mostly take out. You order at the counter and then wait for a table or counter stool to open up, which does happen quickly. With all of the delicious options available, I kept it simple and ordered the eggs and toast with tea. Grabbed a table and sipped the comforting hot tea until my meal was delivered to my table, and delightedly saw that it was a bowl of buttered toast cubes topped with two poached eggs. I broke the yolks with my fork and was transported back to childhood eating the yolk soaked cubes of delicious toast. Yummy, and so comforting amidst the hustle and bustle of a busy NYC Saturday!

    The manzo (roast beef) & pollo club sandwiches are amazing- from the in-house made bread to the quality ingredients. They were served with a small veggie cup that was oil marinated, seriously so good and full of flavour. Their lattes are maybe the best I've ever had. And the pastries are super high quality. This place never disappoints. I live a 10 minute walk away & this is my go-to on weekends.

    After reading numerous articles about the bread at Sullivan Street Bakery, I knew I had to try it. The bakery is located on 9th Ave between 24th and 25th street in the outskirts of Chelsea. I came in and got a loaf and man was it good. It was crusty and crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. A light and not overpowering sourdough flavor was present. This bread would go great with soup or stews or just great with butter! My husband wasn't as big of a fan saying that the sourdough taste was not strong enough for him. I really enjoyed the bread and would go back to get more.

    We found this place when we googled breakfast spots near the high line. We had the Itileano Bowl (Arugula, tomatoes, poached egg) and each of us tried their specialty pastry (canotto (sp?)-chocolate and a dolce), along with a couple of ice coffees). All were great, in fact I liked it so much I contemplated going to their other location tomorrow but we won't have time before our train. Their breakfast sandwiches also looked great, but we did not try one so can't say whether the taste good :).

    I have favorite spot when visiting the city, coffee and a bombolina (a kind of donut). The other pastries are always fresh and tasty. Right next door is Co. another excellent location for unique and unusual homemade pizzas. I couldn't locate this restaurant in the Tripadvisor site, so I will recommend it here.

    Very simply a good place to get a delicious breakfast or a quick bite to eat. I'm used to having free coffee refills in the USA but I suppose this is New York...

    If this was in SF, the foodies would be lining up down the street. I had the veggie breakfast sandwich. Perfect first bite of the day. Tips: order at the register then sit down and wait for your name to be called. And my eggs ran creamy/fluffy, which I loved, but you may want to specify how you want them.

    Two doors down from the Sullivan Street Bakery location on Ninth Avenue is Co Pane, an artisan pizzeria owned and operated by the same company. One of Sullivan St Bakery's specialties are flat breads with different toppings (zucchini, cauliflower, potato, mushrooms, etc.). As an outstanding bread maker, flatbread must have seemed like a natural. The next step: pizza. As you can imagine, Co Pane delivers. We've tried several of their offerings and can report that the meatball pizza and the prosciutto di parma pizzas are excellent, while the shitake pizza was a bit much (the entire surface of the pizza was covered with chopped shitake mushrooms). The wine menu is, for the most part, appropriately priced. The atmosphere is communal -- everyone sits at long, large tables. The decor is modern and the atmosphere is loud and casual. The food, though, is outstanding.

    We had breakfast at the Sullivan Street Bakery on a Sunday morning. It was reasonably early and the place slowly filled up with locals. The place really felt like a neighborhood bakery. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. I had a perfectly executed latte. We tried the panini Salsiccia with eggs and fried sage leaves and the soft cooked egg bowl with vegetables. Everything was delicious and fresh. I would certainly come back for more!

    Stopped here on Sunday morning while headed to the High Line. Nice neighborhood bakery/cafe. I had a breakfast bowl with veggies, poached eggs and bread croutons to soak up the egg. Hubby had an egg sandwich on a baguette. Both were delicious and sustained us for many hours of exploring NY.

    Perfect relief after gusty run on the high line. Normal New York pastry prices but freshly prepared, prompt and friendly service and delicious.

    Went for "brunch" on a random Sunday afternoon. Ended up ordering a sandwich (the club) and was super pleased. ENORMOUS amount of food—but incredibly tasty and ate every bite. The bakery was very crowded when we arrived, and it stayed crowded throughout. Not sure what it's like during non-peak periods, but it is worth waiting for. The breads looked fantastic, too, as did the coffee, but I didn't have the chance to try either. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth grabbing a bite to eat.
