This famous bakery is more than 10 years old now, but it's still one of the best. Blueberry muffins, cheesecake, fluffy cupcakes – it's no wonder "traffic jams" form at the entrance throughout the day. The atmosphere reminds us of grandma's kitchen: sweet aromas, fresh-baked goods, cute benches by the doorway... It has American retro vibes and gives you the feeling that any dream could come true.

The owners really know how to win you over! Compared with Magnolia Bakery, that overhyped tourist trap, Billy's is a breath of fresh air. So before you leave New York, head over to Billy's, grab a pastry and a coffee, and take a seat on one of the benches by the door.

Cuisine: bakery

We recommend: muffins and cupcakes with various fillings, and carrot cake with cream-cheese frosting and pecans.

Atmosphere: homey.

The crowd: everyone from tourists to celebrities.

FYI: There's a second location at 75 Franklin Street (between Broadway and Church) in Tribeca.
