5 Pies to Celebrate National Pi Day with in NYC

Happy National Pi(e) Day! Sweetist is here to help you celebrate with some of the best pies in New York City. So without further ado, here’s our list of the best pies for you to shove in your piehole this National Pi Day.


1. Little Pie Company Sour Cream Apple Walnut Pie

While none of the pies from Little Pie Company disappoint, our favorite (and their bestseller) is the Sour Cream Apple Walnut, layers of thinly sliced apple all topped with a crunchy, crumbly brown sugar walnut streusel.

And for the entire week of Pi Day, if you buy a large pie in store, you’ll get a free sugar cookie shaped like the Pi symbol. So what are you waiting for? Go check them out!

(or if you’re too lazy to move, get one delivered here)

2. Four & Twenty Blackbirds Salted Caramel Apple Pie

Four and Twenty Blackbirds offers up a twist on the classic apple pie with their Salted Caramel Apple Pie. This slice features an apple filling with a barely there touch of caramel, topped with a flaky crust studded with coarse salt. Make sure to ask for some of their homemade whipped cream on the side!

3. Petee’s Pie Company Almond Chess Pie

If fruity pies aren’t your thing, Petee’s Pie Company has got you covered. While their cherry crumb and blueberry pies are fantastic, that’s not what you’re here for. No, you’re here for a slice of one of their chess pies, available in almond, chocolate, salty (!) chocolate, lemon poppyseed, and even sesame varieties. Our favorite is the Almond Chess Pie, with a crisp top of layered almonds that gives way to a gooey, buttery custard. Here’s a tip: order it black bottom and get a thin layer of dark chocolate ganache at the bottom.

4. Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies Key Lime Pie (obviously)

Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies takes it back to the basics with a key lime pie made from only five ingredients: fresh key lime, condensed milk, egg yolks, graham crackers, and butter. They don’t sell slices, so order a mini pie or bring some friends and split a whole one (or eat it by yourself, we won’t judge). When it gets warmer out, opt for a Swingle, a chocolate-dipped mini key lime pie served on a stick.

5. Butter & Scotch S’mores Pie

Butter & Scotch’s S’mores Pie definitely lives up to its name. With its sticky scorched marshmallow, smooth chocolate custard, and graham cracker crust, it’s essentially just a giant s’more. Which isn’t a bad thing. If a slice isn’t enough, you can also order any slice of pie as a milkshake, blended with your choice of ice cream.

Spare yourself the trek to Brooklyn and order one here.

5 Best Peanut Butter Desserts in NYC

In honor of National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day and the beginning of National Peanut Butter Month, we’ve compiled a list of the best peanut butter desserts in New York City.

1. Levain Bakery Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip

With lines curling around the block, clearly everyone and their mother knows about Levain’s gooey fist-sized chocolate chip cookies. But did you know that they come in dark chocolate peanut butter, too? Nah didn’t think so.

Brave the line or get one delivered right to your doorstep here.

2. Doughnut Plant Peanut Butter and Jelly Doughnut  

With its oozing, tart black berry jam center, eating one of these will definitely leave you with some shirt stains. But honestly, we’d eat Doughnut Plant’s pillowy peanut-studded yeast doughnuts plain, so we’re not going to complain. There’s also a banana cream filled version for all you Elvis lovers out there.

3. Billy’s Bakery Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie

Pure peanut butter fluff in a graham cracker crust with a peanut rim, topped with peanut butter cups and a chocolate drizzle. It doesn’t get better than this.

Treat yourself to a slice (or five) for yourself here.

4. Butter & Scotch Trifecta Pie

Oh wait, it might! Brooklyn’s boozy Butter & Scotch Bakery kicks it up a notch with the addition of salted pretzel to their dark chocolate peanut butter pie, lovingly dubbed the ‘Trifecta.’

Spare yourself the subway ride to Brooklyn and get a slice here.

5. Peanut Butter & Co Peanut Butters

Okay, so it’s not technically a dessert, but nothing’s really stopping you from eating an entire jar of any of Peanut Butter & Co’s flavored peanut butters with a spoon. Our personal favorite is the Bee’s Knees, a peanut butter blended with honey (!!!). With flavors from chile to cinnamon raisin, and a slew of other nut butters, there’s something for everyone.

5 Ways to Treat Yo' Self This Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is stressful. We’re here to help.

1. Take a breather

Life is busy, but sometimes you’ve just got to take a moment and smell the roses (or some rose flavored macarons from Mille-feuille).

2. Get creative!

Make something. Don’t just smell those rose flavored macarons, bake your own in Mille-feuille’s macaron-making classes.

3. Snuggle up.

All you need is a fuzzy blanket and a warm drink. A sea salt chocolate chip cookie from Sweet Corner Bakeshop wouldn’t hurt either.

Best Places to Get Baked Goods Delivered in NYC


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

image

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.

2. Seamless/Grubhub

image

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.

3. Postmates

image

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.

4. Caviar

image

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!).

5. Delivery.com

image

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

image

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.

7. UberEats

image

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!
