Ray’s Candy Store
This is a classic! Ray’s Candy Store is one of the most traditional spot in the East Village. Ray and Stella opened over 40 years ago, serving residents and visitors 24h a day since then.
I’d recommend to literally try everything, but I’d start with the one I love the most, the fried Oreos! I promise you won’t regret it!
In addition, the milkshakes are also super refreshing, as well as the soft serves. Plus, everything that has Nutella is a must have, in my opinion. And , finish off the beignets! Phiuf!
Hours: Believe it or not, it’s been 24h since 1974!
Location: 113 Avenue A
Let me start with OH. MY. GOD. The first time I had Dun-Well Doughnuts I couldn’t believe how delicious, how fresh, how tasty, how well-balanced and soft they were. Plus, I was in awe when they finished off telling me: “Yup, they are also vegan!”
It was like I had found heaven on Earth! Hahaha! So, this is truly one of my favorite doughnut spot, that is always on the top of my list.
Dan and Christopher founded the place back in 2011 and today they have two locations – one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn.
How it started?
“Dun-Well Doughnuts started as a food craving when Christopher Hollowell (the “Well” in Dun-Well) called up his buddy Dan Dunbar (The “Dun” in Dun-Well) after having watched a Simpson’s anniversary episode that featured Homer’s favorite round confections rather prominently.”
They have countless options and even some special ones, like the Mac’N’Cheese.
