Birdbath, Midtown, Manhattan
Birdbath is a fabulous bakery and they have a few locations in New York City including the Soho location which kept the hand-painted signs in the windows and awning from Vesuvio’s bakery. I get a little confused about the naming of their shops as they also go by the name The City Bakery. Either way they have very yummy baked goods like cookies and in this Midtown location I had a sandwich.
They love being bakers and they write about it on their website. Definitely worth going there and in Midtown Manhattan there are oh so many chains restaurants or very expensive restaurants and not much in-between. This location is open Monday-Friday 7:30am-5:00pm
