Best snickerdoodle in New York City

Thank goodness I read. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t have seen the wee write-up in New York, which revealed the opening of Peels. And then I wouldn’t have walked into this deliciousness.


Each morning, everything is baked up fresh at the new café, the second act from Freemans owners Taavo Somer and Will Tigertt.

Circular brownies, I sampled. Oh, so fudgy.

I think I chocolate-breaded myself out a few days earlier; otherwise, I would have been all over this chocolate ginger banana bread.

Raspberry and peach cobbler. I can only imagine with those big, fluffy biscuits…

The monkey bread. Seeing the mascarpone label now and wondering why the heck I didn’t go for it.

And my champ, the snickerdoodle.

It’s buttery and sugary and cinnamon-y. All melded together in this oversized crater of a cookie.


I had the chocolate chip cookie, too, which was also nice and buttery; chewy at the edges with plenty of melty chocolate flecks.

But, really, it was all about the snickerdoodle.

Get after it.

Yes. That snickerdoodle looks FABULOUS. OHHH YUM! And I wouldn't mind one of those brownies either! The circular shape is a great idea.

Chocolate. Ginger. Banana bread. Eeep! It's made me so excited it took several efforts to type it properly! Thank you so much for a wonderful recommendation - which I found before an upcoming visit to NYC. Am looking forward to it already...
