This Lower East Side bakery may be known for donuts, croissants, and the signature cruffin available in unique, ever-changing flavors, but when those options inevitably fly off the shelf (and they do), don’t miss the soft serve. Just like the other confections from this otherworldly bakery, Supermoon Bakehouse’s flavors rotate weekly, but past options have included buttered croissant, Thai tea, and raspberry lychee rose. Get there early because this summer treat is bound to sell out too.
How to order: Walk in
Australian pastry chef Stephen Ry first gained stateside attention when he opened Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in San Francisco. Bringing his cheeky, cheery pastries to the Big Apple, he launched Supermoon with the same nonchalant attitude (the shop’s tagline: “Bite Me, NYC”) of irreverent fun. From croissants to his famed cruffins, Ry’s Supermoon reveals its flavors and offerings weekly. Donuts on rotation include churro, lemon and pistachio, passionfruit and blueberry, triple chocolate, matcha and blueberry jam, lime curd and passionfruit bay leaf jam—and even Ferrero Rocher.
How to order: Walk-ins accepted, open Friday-Sunday; online ordering available for Care Packs.
