Billy’s Bakery may be one of the best places in New York to experience the artistry of cakes. These pastry creations are home-made and traditional but never boring. The bakery changes ingredients according to the season, and the scent of cinnamon permeates the kitchen during the winter months. The décor is playful and cozy, with white wooden chairs and pink floral wallpaper. At Billy’s Bakery, you are in good company—actress Katie Holmes is one of the regulars.
