Sweetist is the only delivery service exclusively for baked goods and desserts. Our goal is to make it easier to celebrate any occasion with great food from local bakeries. We deliver to Manhattan, up to 125th St., and to some parts of Brooklyn. Check us out, our list of bakeries is growing rapidly!
When a sugar craving strikes, a go-to place for ordering baked goods is essential. Living in New York City means that there is an abundance of amazing bakeries nearby at all times. Thanks to online ordering, you can get fresh-baked delicacies delivered right to your door without getting out of your pajamas. We took a close look at all of your options, and these 7 places took the cake.
1. Insomnia Cookies
Insomnia Cookies is famous for offering fresh, warm cookies until 3AM. They have a variety of locations around Manhattan (mostly near NYU). Popular offerings include Double Chocolate Chunk and S’more Jumbo Deluxe. In addition to cookies, they also deliver ice cream and cold milk. Deliveries cost $1.50 and usually take around 30-45 minutes.
Why stop at dinner? Despite the fact that Seamless (now partnered with Grubhub) is best known for quick dinners and appetizers, you can find a few bakeries under the Seamless “dessert” category. Most of these bakeries have delivery minimums, but Seamless is great for a last-minute treat for when you’re having guests over and you already ate all the cookie dough.
Postmates is one of the most well-known sites for ordering desserts in NYC, largely because of their partnerships with Momofuku Milk Bar and Dominique Ansel. Although they do charge a service fee and a delivery fee, Postmates is undoubtedly convenient when you need a sugary pick-me-up alongside your paper towels and diet soda from the Postmates General Store. The cronuts are calling.
With a focus on independent, high-end restaurants, Caviar is a nationwide service for food delivery. Their restaurants are required to have at least 4 stars on Yelp and a minimum of 1,000 reviews. At this time they only offer a handful of baked goods to NYC, but their list includes artisanal favorites like Prohibition Bakery (boozy cupcakes!) and Doughnuttery (adorable mini doughnuts!).
Delivery.com is an online delivery service that includes booze, groceries and even laundry. At this time, they only have a few bakery/cafe partners, including Seven Grams Caffe. Let’s hope they’ll add more soon. What goes better with fresh laundry than cupcakes?
6. Milk & Cookies Bakery
Like Insomnia Cookies, the folks at Milk & Cookies Bakery do their own deliveries between 11AM and 5pm. Be aware that they charge a delivery fee for delivery locations outside of the West Village, and the minimum order is $25. Get ready to eat a lot of cookies.
Uber is slowly taking over New York City, one smartphone at a time. Their new service, UberEats, offers a fixed menu delivered by Uber drivers within the hours of 11AM and 2PM. In addition to the regular lunches, they occasionally offer dessert: like the Famous Banana Pudding from Magnolia Bakery, which was only $1 for the #FoodBankFriday charity fundraiser.
If you’ve already tried all the other options without success, if you lie awake at night thinking about brownies, if you can’t think straight without a morning muffin or at least a scone in your system...
We’d love for you to check out Sweetist!
