Bruce's Bakery

1045 1st Avenue
New York, NY 10022
(212) 223-1085

This tiny little bakery store front offers danishes, muffins, cookies and cakes which are on trays along the shelves that line the wall. Some loaves of bread sit on the other wall. A small cash register and credit card reader sit on a small shelf in the middle of one wall and two employees sit in there trying to crack a smile. Definitely no frills as you come here only to buy and take away your purchases.

I bought a bran muffin ($2.25) which was moist and flavorful with a small cup of tea that was perfectly light & sweet ($1.09). Very cordial staff.
I was taken aback by the diminutive size of the place (about half the size of a Pre-War Manhattan studio apartment) but they get their baked goods from the flagship in Great Neck, Long Island.
