William Greenberg Jr. Desserts
Posted by anonymous on 07/03/2013
There are plenty of bakeries in our neighborhood, some even closer to me. For over 25 years I have come here for cookies, cake, and holiday goods and never has there been anything but satisfied guests at my parties. If I had a nickel for every 'we can't get this in Brooklyn', 'LI, NJ,' etc...because they can't get this level of great. THE B&W cookie. I have been to Boulee, Glaser's, and many others but Wm Greenberg is into its own level and not really comparable. This isn't the place for nannies to get a $3 diner cookie for a 4 year old to suck on, this is grown-up food.

The desserts are OK. No big deal. The service could be a lot quicker and friendlier. There are so many other better places to go, that I feel this place just can't compete.

Wm Greenberg's shop frequently pops up on lists of bakeries in Manhattan, but there's nothing exceptional about the goods there. The pastries neither look especially appealing nor taste particularly good. Many of the pastries are just too dry. And most items are overpriced (but I guess that's to be expected given the location).

Trendy restaurants come and go in NYC but William Greenberg Desserts has been around for over 60 years and never disappoints. My favorites are the out-of-this-world, melt-in-your-mouth raspberry Linzer tarts. Unbelievable!! Of course it goes without saying that Greenbergs is the home of the best black & white cookie available in NYC. I love the homey feel of the shop and the friendly ladies who are always there to greet and help you out. This is the perfect place for visitors to go to experience a real NY classic, especially since it's a block away from the Metropolitan Museum.
