My review on TripAdvisor:


Epices Bakery at 104 West 70th Street

Sometimes you walk through a neighborhood and you come across a little shop that is just so cute and interesting that you have to stop in to see what they carry. This is the attraction of Epices Bakery on West 70th Street, a small French pastry shop with beautiful and delicious desserts. Not only is the selection nice but the sights and smells when you enter of freshly made coffee and buttery baked goods greet you when you walk in.

There is a nice variety of baked goods in the glass cases to choose from. One side of the store is dedicated to pastries like eclairs, cream puffs and fruit tarts and the other has savory breakfast items like ham and cheese croissants, small quiches both plain and with ham and fruit filled apple turnovers. Each sit like a jewel on the shelf ready to be eaten.

For my first visit to the bakery, I tried both the Ham and Cheese Quiche ($6.00) and for the dessert, one of the Apple Turnovers or Chaussons Au Pommes ($6.50). Both were well baked, buttery and delicious. They were a bit on the pricey side but the quality and portion size made up for it.

The Ham and Cheese Quiche had a rich creamy texture to the filling and was full of chopped ham baked in a flaky buttery crust that had such a nice complexity of flavors from the sharp cheese and the smoked ham.

The Ham and Cheese Quiche has a buttery goodness

The Apple Turnover had a nice puffy, buttery pastry cover filled with freshly chopped sweet apples that had been rolled in cinnamon and sugar. There was a crackle as a bit into the buttery crust into the sweet fruit mixture. It made for the perfect dessert on a cool afternoon.

The Apple Turnovers are filled with delicious, sweet apples

The service could not have been friendlier or more welcoming and the young woman who helped me that afternoon was a pleasure to talk to while making my purchase.

I will be back.
