Preorder cronuts for 3pm. This way you'll be able to get both the cronut and chocolate chip cookie shot in. Both are musts...
The cronut was amazing! Also the DKA is a must try! I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. Definitely one of the best bakeries I've been to!
Dominique Ansel now makes insanely good banana bread. Ansel has put his signature spin on the homey dessert, making the loaf lighter, balanced & encased with the perfect craggy, caramelized crust.
If you're in the market for a Cronut, skip the line with a little advanced planning. Reserve up to 6 Cronuts for pickup 2 weeks out on Mondays at 11am. Reservations go quickly, so no dilly-dallying.
Fantastic place. Queue up for the Cronut. It is a hundred percent worth it. The Madeleines are made fresh as you order them, and the croissants are probably better than some you'd get in Paris.
Dominique was my pastry chef for 7 years before opening his own bakery. I love to pop in for some flaky DKA, or a special seasonal treat for my wife. If I’m lucky he sometimes sends me a cronut!

The cronuts live up to the hype. Wasn't sure about the Caribbean Rum Raisin (Nov '14), but they are simply amazing. DKA (Kouign Amann) IS a close second. The coffee is great, too.
1. Be prepared to queue for cronuts (5.5$) 1-1.5h even on weekdays! 2. There is a possibility to pre-order on the web-site. 3. Crispy outside, great filling, smooth texture.
I came here at 6:30am on a Tuesday and was about the 30th-ish person in line. Hopefully the cronut hype is dying. It's 7:14 and it doesn't look like we hit 100 people yet.
