Nothing gets my stomach growling more than the smell of fresh baked goods. With autumn in full swing and the holidays right around the corner–I am fully supportive of embracing my sweater weather bod with some flaky dough and sugary flavors. A few pounds just make you more comfy, right? Well, if you’re on board I’ve got some suggestions for you.
If you’re looking for a sweet treat, visiting NYC for the holidays, or looking for something to bring to Thanksgiving (because come on, who has time to bake these days?), here are my top 5 picks for tantalizing bakeries in Brooklyn.
Rated by Tastemade by one of the top 11 Doughnut shops in America. In you have a thing for the fried, icing blessed treat, this is a must-visit.

Located near Greenpoint Ave, this bakery has created quite a name for itself. Starting as a wholesale bakery, they’re known for their sweet and savory treats such as salted chocolate chip cookies or blue-cheese pecan scones.

When you’ve been featured in Saveur, Food & Wine, and Eater–you’re doing something right. Their famous pies are made right in Brooklyn and I suggest you get one and make your mom happy. My suggestion: The salted caramel apple pie.

This famous restaurant is known for its southern food and disgustingly good pies. If you wanna get chicken and waffles or just want to get all your friends fat, go to Pie’s n’ Thighs. Not to much a bourbon pecan pie just seems like the perfect balance.

Caribbean cooking brings bold flavors and you can expect nothing less from their baking. They make your standard cakes and treats, but with a little bit of a twist. If you’re looking to bring something different to friendsgiving this year, I suggest trying Allan’s.
