Cream-filled at Doughnut Plant

We're coming up on tax season. Which has a silver lining for me: my accountant is a few doors down from the original Doughnut Plant. 

Doughnut Plant. Home of beautiful cake and yeast and cream-filled creations that are so naughty and so good. 
They're cranking out more and more "small" doughnuts, which means you can sample multiple flavors with less guilt.

Chocolate hazelnut.
Cashew orange blossom.
I love tax season.

Breakfast Club at Clinton St. Baking Company

February was Pancake Month at Clinton St. Baking Company.

Bennie and I went twice for Breakfast Club. Once for raspberry almond pancakes.
And another time for the spicy chocolate and crispy banana ones.
Always on the menu are blueberry pancakes.
Let there be no mistake. These are the best pancakes in the city.

Bathazar for Breakfast

There's no better sight, walking into the office, than seeing a stack of pastry boxes from Balthazar.
What lies inside? Pain au chocolat.
 Plain croissants.

And, le mieux, almond croissants.

Admittedly not my favorites in the city. But a little taste of Paris goes a long way.

Rose Bakery, NYC

Do these tin can carrot cakes look familiar?
That's because Rose Bakery, the ultimate London import in Paris, has made its way stateside, landing at the tres impressive Dover Street Market. Get your forks ready!

Breakfast Club at Four & Twenty Blackbirds

For most Americans, pie season is over. Pumpkin, apple and pecan treats are of a season past, and the preferable winter indulgences are cakes and bonbons. But if you happen to live near Four & Twenty Blackbirds in Gowanus, then pie is a yearlong celebration.

(You might even want a slice of malted chocolate pecan, along with a baked oatmeal muffin, for breakfast.)
