Best Brooklyn Bakeries

1. Damascas Bread & Pastry Shop

For 84 years, the Damascas Bread & Pastry Shop has been a Brooklyn staple when it comes to baked goods. They’re known for creating the original pita bread as well as for many other tasty handmade wraps, lavash breads, paninis, and more.

2. Burrow

Located in DUMBO, Burrow has made a name for itself as a master patisserie in New York City. From pastries and cakes to scones and more, each baked good is handcrafted and delicious.

3. Clementine Bakery

In the mood for some delicious (and vegan) seasonal baked goods? Then Clementine Bakery is your place. Whether you’re picking up a birthday cake or want to go and stay for a while, we think you’ll find Clementine a delightful and tasty Brooklyn treasure.

4. Buttermilk Bake Shop

Cake, cake, and more cake! (Did we mention they have cake?) While cake certainly isn’t the only thing on the menu at Buttermilk Bake Shop, we definitely recommend that you at least grab a slice while you’re in town. Be sure to also check out their unique cookies, brownies, and other treats.

5. Ovenly

A little sweet, a little savory, and a ton of yum, Ovenly has won a number of awards for their delicious baked concoctions. While some combinations seem out of the box, they continue to draw crowds with their delicious seasonal breads, donuts, scones, and more.
