Momofuku Milk Bar is hard to miss, with five locations in Manhattan and two in Brooklyn. Milk Bar makes iconic cakes, milkshakes, truffles, and their infamous cereal milk soft serve pictured below. If you love birthday cake flavor anything, I'd highly recommend going the Milk Bar for rich birthday cake truffles and milkshakes.

Jars by Dani is a newer small-scale bakery that just recently opened a pop-up location in Soho. Their small baking team assembles jars of different cake flavors, from fudge brownie to cake batter, pictured above. If you're on the go and craving frosting and cake, definitely stop by Jars by Dani and grab a cute jar to go!

If you have't heard of Black Tap, where have you been?! The booming Black Tap milkshakes are all over Instagram, foodies are loving it. However, if you want to embark on this 1000 calorie endeavor, be prepared to stand in line for at least 1-2 hours among dozens of other sweet lovers. The Soho location is small and can only fit so many people, but it is most definitely worth it. Not willing to wait in line for a classic milkshake to 'gram a beautiful photo? Order one online; the to-go shakes taste just as amazing

6. Dominique Ansel Bakery

Dominique Ansel is a renowned pastry chef who invented the "cronut", croissant doughnut hybrid, which dessert lovers have raved about since its launch in 2013. Now, foodies looking for a lighter treat go for his new "cookie shot" pictured above. Ansel is clearly a crowd pleaser with these innovative pastries taking New York by storm.

7. Juicy Spot Cafe

Not only is it cool to watch being made, but it's cool to eat. The newest ice cream trend, rolled ice cream, is popping up all over NYC. Juicy Spot debuted the first American made rolled ice cream which originated in Thailand. Ever since, it's been the rage here on the East Coast.
