This past Saturday, I decided it was high time I went back to NYC. It's been since before Christmas (I didn't even want to be outside this winter in Philly, let alone go NORTH and be walking through NYC in that hellacious cold. nothankyouandgoodday.), so since I had no set plans for the weekend, I decided to hop the train and head up there.
I'm not a big fan of the center of Manhattan....you know, around Times Square and all that crap.....so I get on the subway from Penn Station and head either Uptown towards Columbus Circle or to the museums, or Downtown to my favorite....SoHo. Greenwich is also fabulous. Oh, and the Fashion District - the fabric and trim stores are TO DIE. Now I feel like I need to sew something.
Aside from the usual shopping while I was in NYC, I was on the hunt for Tu-lu's Gluten Free bakery, and I found it, nestled on 11th Street. Like Babycakes, it's in an unassuming spot, bare-bones interior, but has phenomenal goodies.
I had the mini coffee cake, cranberry almond muffin, and the raspberry glazed donut. The cranberry almond muffin was hands-down my fav of the three things I got. I need to hit them up earlier next time (I was there around 1pm) and see what they have in the mornings before it's all picked over.
For my fellow gluten-freebies, I highly recommend this bakery when you're visiting NYC. You will not be disappointed.
