Treat yo’ self: A true motto to live by. And what better way to fulfill that than with, well, treats? Some of the best desserts on the planet are nativeto New York City and naturally, look just as good on camera as they taste. So, take a little time out of the day to reward yourself at one of New York’s most Insta (and drool)-worthy dessert spots. Trust us, your stomach and followers will be thanking you. Check out the locations in our Sweet Tooth collection and then add them to yours!
They say raw diets are good for the body, and we can’t help but agree. After all, I think we all know that the best part of baking cookies is what’s created before turning on the oven. DŌ has quickly emerged as New York’s cookie dough king and is the perfect spot for anyone with a sweet tooth. Flavors include signature chocolate chip, confetti, and peanut butter snickerdoodle, and new options are offered every month (so there is truly no reason not to keep going back!). Eat it on a crazy cone, with ice cream in the middle, or blended into a milkshake. No matter how you get it, you’re going to enjoy it. And so will your Instagram feed. That’s just human nature for ya.
Want to know what’s better than getting a picture-worthy dessert? Getting a VIDEO-worthy dessert. Yes, you heard that right. Gelso & Grand is a must-stop for all you Boomerang-thirsty Instagrammers (don’t deny it, it’s 2017). The Italian spot is serving up HUGE cannolis (and we mean HUGE) with unconventional fillings and toppings. Stop by to try the Cookie Dough-Nut Cannoli, the Unicornolli, or their OG, the Matcha Reese’s Cannoli. Now you may be wondering, wait, where do I get my Boomerang in all of this? Well, Gelso & Grand serves a mallet alongside the massive Italian treat and encourages you to smash that ish to pieces. Basically, this restaurant is the perfect place for indulging in an incredible dessert and getting a perfect Instagram Boomerang AND getting in a bit of a workout (swinging a hammer totally counts as arm day, right?).
There is truly no shortage of Ice Creameries in New York City. The Big Apple has some of the best and most innovative ice cream flavors in the world that also happen to look #flawless on screen. When it comes to soft serve, however, this spot has quickly taken the cake (ice cream cake?). A newer shop on the scene, Milk & Cream took ice cream and cereal and combined them into a unique flavor that you won’t find anywhere else. Pick one of the many types of cereal (that’ll most definitely take you back to your childhood) to blend into the ice cream base, then top it with other treats! If ice cream isn’t your game (are you human?), then customize a bowl of cereal instead. Either way, the outcome is a unique, beyond delicious treat that’ll leave everyone stalking your feed. And since this has cereal, we can totally eat it for breakfast, right?
Alright, alright. I know we just told you that cookie dough > actual cookies, but we have an exception. Levain Bakery is pretty much world-renowned at this point, known for their THICK cookies. And we mean THICK. The bakery offers chocolate chip walnut, dark chocolate chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and dark chocolate peanut butter chip varieties, all super fresh, warm, and gooey. One bite and you’ll understand the hype. After all, the one-of-a-kind treat looks perfect broken in half on your Instagram and tastes even better.
