It is well worth the 10 min walk from the train to sample sweets at the Astor Bake Shop. This is a nice addition to an area that has not been blessed with bakeries on every corner. All desserts are homemade, fresh and quite good. The Carrot Cake is wonderfully prepared with a Cream Cheese Frosting and just the right amount of frosting. Sit down, enjoy the cake and before you leave order a brownie to go. It will give you enough energy to get back to the train, but I guarantee you will finish it by block number three. The Astor Bake Shop is a friendly place, where the owner will most likely greet you at your table. Can your dessert shop say the same thing?
