359 Van Brunt St. Brooklyn, NY 11231 | Red Hook | 718-222-0345

Location Description:

For some reason, nothing is hipper than a bakery these days. Baked, despite its slacker name, is an overachiever located in Red Hook and selling to cafes all over town. But going into the mellow shop itself is a real treat, whether you're just there for a good cup of coffee, or the still-trendy cupcake, or their specialty: homemade marshmallows, sold in packages to bring home or served in a hot cup of cocoa. They also make brownies, scones, cookies, pies, tarts, cakes with a nostalgic inspiration ("diner double dark," "icebox cake," "malted chocolate cake"). Naturally, they also do a good business in wearable souvenirs, all on American Apparel T-shirts and sweatshirts, like a chocolate-brown T-shirt that reads "Freshly Baked" across the chest in orange.
