Well, it’s April 1st and time to start really taking a cold hard look at my eating habits. Time to reevaluate what I am putting in my body and my fitness goals. With summer just around the corner I want to rock the six-pack, and not hide the bod from view. I know what to do, how to eat, how to train. I used to be a personal trainer dammit! Yet, it is so hard as temptation is everywhere in NYC!
How on God’s green Earth am I ever supposed to eat normal living in this city of excess? Really, I mean, WTF!!!! WHAT – THE – EFFFFF!!!!!
The City Bakery –
Are they kidding me here? Terrific pretzel croissants. PRETZEL. CROISSANT. No, it’s no joke. Just so crispy and flaky on the outside, moist and buttery on the inside. So freaking good.
Oh yeah, really? How the hell am I supposed to resist that huge cup of amazing and rich and creamy hot chocolate? Oh, and don’t think I’m not going to add a huge slab of homemade marshmallow dunked into it. “The BEETUS!” I can hear Wilford Brimley scream in my ear!
Someone is gonna catch a beating soon. Is it overpriced – you bet. Do I care one ounce? HELLZ NO!
Are there other food options here? Sure – a mac & cheese area, pizza, a buffet, a juice bar, hot drinks, and some other stuff that I really did not pay attention to since I was in hot chocolate ecstasy. They have a decent amount of house baked goods. Scones, cookies, cakes, croissants, muffins. Even some vegan friendly goods. Many huge and dense looking like the monsterous and crumbly Baker’s Muffins. Do they care that we are all turning into fatties over here??? DO THEY CARE???
There is seating on an upstairs level, with some smaller individual tables on the lower level around the main coffee and bakery counter. The space itself is large and airy. Busy even at mid-day on a Monday afternoon but service is usually fast and friendly.
The pretzel croissant and hot chocolate with homemade marshmallow is the way to go!
Take a table and devour in bliss. JUST DO IT!!! Worry about the guilt tomorrow while eating a fruit cup.
