For good reason, New York City is known as the culinary capital of the world. The city’s large, diverse population has brought with it as many styles and tastes as may be found the world over. This is good news for the city’s human population, of course, but it’s also a treat for the city’s dog population, which benefits from the overflow of delicious dishes. Though table scraps from the city’s thousands of restaurants might suffice for some, the NYC dog bakery has long been a fixture of the city for those dog lovers willing to shell out some extra cash for a home-baked dog treat or even a dog birthday cake for your pooch’s special day. Truly, NYC dog bakeries offer special treats for those pups in need of a little spoiling.
Here’s a few of NYC’s top dog bakeries.
Though a bit off the beaten path in the Woodside neighborhood of Queens, Buttercup’s Paw-tisserie (3749 58th Street) is a NYC dog bakery that offers a wide selection of in-house baked treats for your special pup. Offering cookies, biscuits, brownies, “pup-cakes,” and, yes, pizza, Buttercup’s offers just about anything you and your dog could desire. Also available are a variety of customizable birthday cakes made with premium ingredients that you yourself might salivate over. The store’s policy of making all their baked goods with healthy, tasty ingredients make this the premier NYC dog bakery.
In Manhattan, Prima Dog (336 E. 59th Street) offers the kind of luxurious delicacies you’d expect out of the Upper East Side. Though primarily a seller of toys, beds, and other high-end doggie items, the shop also offers a wide selection of tasty (and pricey) baked goods for your dog, including croissants, bagels, and even french fries.
Venture over to the West Village and you’ll find Dog Town Bites (61 Horatio Street), a classy NYC dog bakery with a wide variety of delicious doggie delights. The bakery sells its goods out of a food cart, and its fancy eats are well worth tracking down. Bon boons, biscotti, marzipan, and other tasty bites are among the cart’s extensive menu. Boasting ingredients that are 70 percent organic, this is one NYC dog bakery you’ll want to visit often.
Though not technically in the city, hop over the Hudson and check out You Lucky Dog (932 Washington Street), this pet shop boasts a dog bakery that will delight you and your canine companion. The homemade dog treats are top-notch, proving that the Big Apple isn’t the only place to find a decent meal.
