What you'll do

Join us as we answer the age old question: which is better, cupcakes or cookies? Maybe both! We’ll trek across Manhattan from the East Village to the West Village in search of some of the best cookies and cupcakes the city has to offer. From classic butter cream to mini cupcakes, traditional cookies to the French macaron, what will be your favorite? You’ll even get the opportunity to create your own mini cupcake at the conclusion of the tour. We’ll bypass the big name chain bakeshops while we take you to some of the best small bakeshops in the city.

This tour starts in the East Village where you will meet your licensed tour guide and the rest of your tour group. We will cover about 2 miles at a leisurely pace as we explore the best cupcakes and cookies, finishing up in the West Village.

We specialize in walking dessert food tours in New York City that combine culinary and cultural history with the best sweets in the city. On our tours, guides showcase the city's best hidden bakeries and off the beaten path gems where the locals go. Guests leave with a full stomach and newfound knowledge of NYC's best bakeries.
