Amy’s Bread

Here’s a great address and a good tip to have a breakfast in New York City at Amy’s Bread bakery.
I tested the Chelsea Market location but additional locations are available in the city like in Hell’s Kitchen.
It’s a delight, not to be missed!!!

A little history about Amy’s Bread

The founder and owner, Amy Scherber, comes from Minneapolis (Minnesota). Amy majored in economy and psychology and after 3 years of working in a marketing company, she decided to change path into baking and cooking.
In 1992, she opened her first bakery and right away it became a success story. She then earned a number of prizes and developed her concept with 2 additional bakeries in New York. Now there are 7 places in New York where you can enjoy Amy’s pastries.

What about Amy’s Bread’s products?

At Amy’s you’ll find:
– A great variety of breads including the famous “I Love NY” one:
