Supermoon Bakehouse

I used to go to the counterpart of Supermoon Bakehouse when I visited my friends in San Francisco so imagine my delight when they opened up a bakehouse here in New York City! Located in the Lower East Side, it’s a nice, somewhat spacious bakery with a minimalist design. They do have a wall lit up with the words “Bite Me, NYC”, though, which is pretty apt!

WHAT THEY ARE KNOWN FOR:
Bi-colored croissants and cruffins

Each pastry is roughly $5-6 and if you order a minimum of six pastries, they pack it in a psychedelic-looking box. The founders of the bakehouse are also the originators of the “cruffin” (a portmanteau of “croissant” and “muffin”) as a response to the cronut craze that started here in New York a few years ago. You can check out their ever-changing menu here.

Of course, the fatty that I am, I spent almost $40 on a box of pastries – filled doughnuts, bi-colored croissants, cruffins, and twice-baked croissants. I’m actually more impressed with the bakery here than its counterpart in San Francisco – even their NYC croissant with the lox, capers, and cream cheese was better than their “Asian”-style smoked salmon and wasabi croissant. I honestly don’t have a particular recommendation – they’re all pretty delicious so just take a few friends with you so that you can buy several and try them all!
