7. Arcade Bakery

Hidden in an office corridor in Tribeca is Arcade Bakery. Conceived by Robert Highsmith and Stefanie Brechbuehler of the Brooklyn-based design firm Workstead, the setting of Arcade Bakery is quite unconventional and rather hidden from the street. Opened in May 2014, they specialize in traditional handcrafted breads and yeasted pastries and bake everything fresh daily on premises in small batches. Also on the menu: pizza and Babkas.

Serving up arguable some of the city’s best croissants and baguettes, take your lunch break at this low-key gem for some delicious savory options, with some pretty stunning puff-pastry for dessert.
