The only place in the world where you can buy wholemeal pretzel croissants and it’s worth the trip just to have one. Salty and crispy on the outside, soft in the middle and buttery to the touch. Delicious! The City bakery ( 18th & 5th ) was one of our first discoveries in NYC ( they have a hot chocolate festival every winter ) and when they had an Australian barista, it was one of our regular coffee places. Now you can’t always rely on the coffee, but the pretzel croissants are fantastic every time. There are bike racks out front, and they give 15% discount to cyclists. As if we need any encouragement….!
