Eat: Birdbath Neighborhood Green Bakery (SoHo location)

Amidst the chic, luxury, art and cobblestone streets of SoHo lies Birdbath Neighborhood Green Bakery.

However, you may not know it is Birdbath Bakery, as it took over the space of a beloved and most famous bakery in SoHo, Vesuvio Bakery and kept the facade and signage untouched, but re-purposed the interior slightly to fit its operations.

Whilst looking up Birdbath Bakery, I learned that the ethos of Birdbath is operating a bakery in an environmentally way (it is the little sister of City Bakery), Somewhat keeping the former bakery’s glory is fitting.

The bakery is small with very limited seating — literally, just a bench.

My cousin Betty and I were enticed by the window display of cookies, but chose not to enter as there was a destination in SoHo we wanted to get to. After finding out the destination was still closed, but opening in about 10 minutes, we decided to go back to Birdbath for a cookie, especially after seeing several people around with it.

With a large array of offerings, it was hard to choose just one. We each settled with a chocolate chip cookie (if I recall, it’s $3.50 each), which was massive and really good — crunchy exterior with a buttery, moist interior. It was not overly sweet either.

For those who are gluten-sensitive, unfortunately they do not offer anything gluten-free (or at least during my visit, as someone came in and asked if they had anything gluten-free and was told no).
