Delicious, comfortable, and genuine... – That's what you can expect from Joann(e) and Sam. I've gone there quite a few times and they're always so warm and welcoming. Both are more than happy to help me, but they've never been overbearing or forceful and they let me take my time and meander and take in the entire experience that is their adorable bakery. I tell as many people as possible to pop in for a visit and I take advantage of every special occasion to pick up some treats to lure people to discover it for themselves. Most recently, I went in to pick up some cookies for a friend's birthday and Joann(e) prepared a lovely selection of cookies, which were received by all at the restaurant with ever-widening eyes and smiles. When asked if we wanted dessert, the birthday girl herself exclaimed proudly: "No thanks. We have something better!" Joann(e) and Sam are also more than happy to share their newest treats, but again, they're not forceful. I had already had dinner when Sam offered me a taste of their walnut and cranberry tart, but I didn't want to eat too much so he kindly packed it away for me to enjoy at another time - a time I am very much looking forward to. Joann(e) even took the time to explain the difference between a tart and torte.
Overall, I truly enjoy seeing both of them and they're both grateful to see me even if I've not been able to make it in for a while. It's just so incredibly inviting and with their phenomenal treats...well that just seals the deal. Please, give yourself a break from the hyped up bakeries that lack personality and genuine creativity and treat yourself to a rare jewel in New York City.
I would like to apologize to Joann(e) for not knowing how her name is spelled. Shame on me!
Best desserts ever – I went here for the first time yesterday to buy a selection of desserts for a meeting. When I told the owner that I was tired of getting dried out cupcakes, brownies, etc. from other bakeries she declared that all of their desserts are very fresh and moist. She helped me pick out an assortment of brownies, cookies and dessert bars...and then threw in a cupcake for free for me to try. The cupcake was out of this world good. It was moist! The buttercream frosting was absolutely perfect! This gave me high hopes for the goodies I bought for my meeting, so I was very happy when every single thing I bought was proclaimed excellent by my fellow attendees. Everyone clustered around the dessert tray trying different things until it was all gone. I would highly recommend Dessert Delivery. The baked goods were excellent, the shop is very attractive and the staff was wonderful.
Most Delicious Desserts, Unbeatable Service – I can't bring myself to shop anywhere else for my bakery delicacies, personal and corporate gifts and specialty desserts. The quality of their cakes, cookies and pastries is so far superior to anywhere else in this city that you become hooked. Sam and Joann are the most helpful and friendly owners who have always gone the extra mile for me when I needed something very special in a short time. My clients love to get my gifts from DD. P.S. The store is beautiful with an adorable tearoom.
