If you are a sweet lover and you live in New York City, you have probably already heard about Mia’s Bakery. For more than 5 years, this place is an escape from reality for all sugarholic.
If you want to try every item from their menu, you will need a few months to do that since their menu is very extensive. Also, you will certainly get a few extra pounds but the sacrifice would be worth it!
This pastry shop is located in Smith Street on Cobble Hill so you can easily access it from any part of the city.
But if you prefer fast-paced New York City life in the heart of Manhattan, don’t forget to visit Mia’s local in Times Square.
The idea behind Mia’s Bakery
The idea of creating this sweet heaven came after fantastic baklava when two families were having a conversation about their favorite desserts. They discussed how hard is to find a place in their environment where you can enjoy delightful classic desserts.
New York City is world known for following the trends so if you want to be successful in this city you always have to present something new.
But Paris Asprou, the co founder of Mia’s Bakery knew that quality always beats the trend. Keeping that in mind, they have opened a place that provides originality, tradition, and flavor to which guests will always return.
The wooden ambiance is decorated with subtle details contributing cozy and peaceful atmosphere. They provide a sitting area inside the local and outside in the garden.
The space inside is simple, moderate, and modern. All this was probably the tactic so you can completely concentrate on the most important element of the place – a large glass counter containing hundreds of mouth-watering desserts.
The garden is small, charming, and intimate. It is perfect for the celebration of your important life events since you can enjoy the tasty desserts and socialize with your loved ones at the same time.
Cakes are sold whole or in slices. One slice is quite big so if you are not a big fan of sweets it can be enough for two people. The assortment is huge, so you can choose from over 20 different types of cakes.
But if you start to analyze the flavors, you will never make a decision so I recommend just taking the first cake that caught your eye. Believe me, you won’t regret it!
The staff does their best to constantly fill the display case so you will have a variety of choices even late in the evening. There are endless combinations so there is no chance of not finding the perfect cake for you.
Guest favorite cakes are “Carrot Cake” with walnuts and raisins covered with cream cheese frosting and “Lemon Blueberry Cake” with a vanilla base.
If you prefer light cakes you have to try “Strawberry Shortcake Cake” amazing whipped cream and vanilla cake with fresh strawberries. For chocoholics, I suggest the “Chocolate Fudge Cake” choco bomb.
Mia’s Bakery cheesecakes are mostly made in New York style. That means that heavy cream cheese will create a dense and rich texture for your favorite dessert.
If you like cheesecakes with fruit addition you can choose between Apple, Strawberry, Blueberry, and Cherry Cheesecakes.
You can always play safe and order Classic Cheesecake but since you are here I would recommend being brave and trying something with more sugar like Pekan, Caramel, or always favorite Oreo Cheesecake.
Tarts, pies, and cupcakes
If you prefer a more subtle taste of dessert, there is also a huge selection of those. It is one of the Best Cupcake Spots In Brooklyn.
Tres Leches Cupcake is a well-known mini specialty of this house. If you can’t enjoy this treat because you are in a rush to get to the office, take away a few pieces and brighten up your hard-working day.
The most popular tart is the classic Fruit Tart. If you want to feel the dominance of a certain fruit, you can choose one of the already made combinations.
Those who love homemade cakes will be thrilled when they try Mia’s pies. Pies can also be found in several flavors, most are fruity but there is also an option with chocolate.
Next time when you have an important event make sure to include Mia’s Bakery catering in the organization. Whether it’s weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, or business gatherings Mia’s always has the right choice of treats to brighten up your event.
On their website, you can make a custom-made cake with their experts. All you have to do is to imagine your favorite cake, send them a picture and instructions of what you want your cake to contain, and your perfect cake will be waiting for you in a few days.
Since kids’ birthdays can’t pass without their favorite heroes, having their hero on the cake is a great way to make your little one feel happy and special.
Although Mia’s Bakery is specialized to satisfy the need of sweet tooth people, you can also find savory meals on their menu. They offer Spinach Pies with the addition of Feta or Kale.
Also, there are a few options for savory Croissants. The mix of cheese with meat like turkey or ham, or a lighter option with vegetables.
If you do not like to experiment and mix flavors, the classic Butter Croissant is an ideal option for breakfast.
Mia’s drink menu also has plenty of sweet options. As I said, it is heaven for sugar lovers.
You can always have plain coffee or organic tea, but once you’re there try their Smoothie, Milkshake, or Hot chocolate in a few flavors.
For hot summer days, there is a special section with cold drinks that will refresh you, but as always, nothing can refresh you better than a delicious gelato.
