The shop also has a large selection of coffees, teas and cold drinks so if you're on a shopping expedition of the Lower East Side, this is a perfect place to take a break. Their spectacular custom pastries and cakes can be ordered with as little as 48 hours notice. When it comes to custom cakes, their philosophy is "never say no" to any client's wish or vision. A good example is a recent huge cake in the shape of a golden Buddha.
