I wanted to share my photos and experience with you from my visit to Duane Park Patisserie in New York City, in the Tribeca area. Here goes another one checked off my Bakery Bucket List.
Started in 1992 by Madeline Lanciani, it is unassuming and easily missed. Once inside you will be intoxicated by the sweet aroma and darling decor. Your eyes will dance over trays of thin, crisp, cut out cookies, frosted (or I should say “painted”) in wild colors. Look up, down and all around. The room is authentically vintage, with a real tin ceiling and extremely worn wood floors. It’s furnished with curb-side finds, some needing repair. No two stools or tables are alike.
Immediately what caught my eye was the three trays of french pastries lounging near the register taunting anyone who comes near. I’ll admit I’m a suckers for all pastries and these are some of the best I have ever had.
I had the pecan danish, pink coconut cake ball, peanut butter cookie bar, and raisin danish. You can tell straight away that all the treats are baked fresh daily. Wanted to indulge in everything the shop had to offer, however that was about the time I was serious about loosing 30 lbs. Nothing short of extraordinary, a feast for the senses.
A full service bakery offering everything you can possibly imagine. Please go to the website for the complete list or better yet just go there
