8. Savoy Bakery
As there might be several churches on a Harlem block, there can also be several bakeries on a block. Savoy Bakery is just steps away from El Barrio Bakery at East 110th Street. The Savoy opened in 2003 by Brian Ghaw–who recently opened Feast in the East Village. Mr. Ghaw’s parents have had a bakery in New Jersey for more than two decades. After graduating from NYU, a bakery seemed a good entrepreneurial beginning for him. At the Savoy, you have the option to stay and eat there, while enjoying the local art on their walls.
