In 1992, Amy Scherber opened the original location of her namesake bakery in Hell's Kitchen. Fast forward to the present and you'll find two more bustling locations in Manhattan, including a recently revamped store in Chelsea Market, and that Amy's Bread has become a New York City institution.
And while her bread may be what put Scherber on the map, Amy's also makes some of the best sweets in NYC, from old-fashioned layer cakes to crumbly oat scones. With so many choices on display, it's good to have some guidance, and guidance from the top. We asked Scherber to tell us her top 5 favorite sweets available at the bakery.
