New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Stepping into this quaint, homey East Village pastry shop and café will instantly transport you from the busy streets of Manhattan to a small village in Europe, where people sit around ruminating over espresso and custard frittatas all day. The menu changes daily, depending on what’s available at the local farmer’s market (Michelle Obama, you’d love this place), but sample treats include rose almond cookies, lemon cornmeal cakes and olive oil cakes.
