The Upper East Side of Manhattan is gorgeous and has countless places to visit! If you’re around, visit a Brazilian Bakery called Padoca, with goodies that you will love!
We woke up early today to visit a place that has been highly recommended by a few close friends.
Padoca Bakery is a beautiful neighborhood bakery with the most amazing seasonal in house made products. The Brazilian inspired spot, with clear International influences, is owned by the dear Marina Halpern.
The amazing pastry Chef, Rachel Binder, definitely surprised us with the variety of goodies. Plus, the fantastic smell as you walk in is priceless and everything we saw looked delicious!
Sweets range from chocolate dulce de leite babkas to oatmeal cookies and to-drool-for scones. They also sell the super traditional Brazilian PDQ (a.k.a. Pão de Queijo or cheese bread) that is definitely one of the highlights. Plus, the empadinhas are done in-house, daily.
Their coffee, Nobletree, “is an innovative coffee brand of farmers, roasters and baristas based in Brooklyn, with proprietary coffee farms in Brazil”.
You can come by for lunch too. They serve Salads, Sandwiches and daily soups, all created by Chef Rocky.
Are you Vegan? Do try their Açai Bowl! We are sure you will love this Brazilian bakery in NYC.
Last but not least, they offer Catering Service, so feel free to contact them so they can help you host a great breakfast or brunch for friends!
Here are a few places you can visit and explore the neighborhood, since you went all the way up there.
You can have lunch (or dinner), in a few of our favorite restaurants like Candle 79 (a fantastic place, you’d never imagine it’s vegan), The East Pole (super trendy British tavern) and Uva (if you love truffled dishes)!
In addition, if you’re feeling like splurging a bit while shopping, why not buy that statement jewelry at Jack Vartanian or Hueb. Take a look at our Private Jewelry Shopping & Consultation Services and get to meet the designers through an extremely exclusive experience.
Finally, if you are organizing a company dinner for your clients or c-level executives and team, read about our Corporate Services and how we an make it all seamless for you.
