Great place to have a great dessert. Its an old school pastry. All the desserts are so tasteful. The service is kinda slow, but once you get your plate, you forget all of this.

It's my 600th review! And I'm glad that Veniero's is the one to nab that title. I can't believe I never knew about this place. Back in my heyday, I hung out in the East Village all the time. Then again, at the hours I was out, you'd have been more likely to find me at a bar than at a pastry shop. But had I known about Veniero's, I would have visited sooner and a lot more often - though I'm not sure my wallet or my waistline would really appreciate that. I randomly found this place one day on Yelp when my boyfriend and I were in the area and he wanted rainbow cookies. A quick search gave me Veniero's and with 1400+ reviews, it was a done deal. Once you walk inside, you grab a number. Expect to wait at least 20 minutes. At least that's how long we waited on a Saturday afternoon at around 4. This wait time is very dangerous. Dangerous because it gives you ample time to eye the sweets a few times over. And each time you walk past, you'll be adding another item on your list of things to order. And let me warn you - they add up. You order a few things here and there and before you know it, you're spending $40 on a few pastries. But definitely worth it for a once in a while splurge. We ordered the tiramisu, New York style cheesecake, a few cannolis, a cream puff, marzipan, and rainbow cookies. The rainbow cookies were a tad dry. They weren't the best but my boyfriend, who's been here on a few occasions tells me that they normally are good. The tiramisu was alright. Maybe it was too much cocoa powder on top. Everything else was great. Nothing tasted too heavy or too sweet. I really liked the atmosphere because it looks old-timey. It reminded me of the pasticcerias in Italy. If you don't want to order to go, you can walk straight to the back and wait to be seated. Not a bad idea because I'm sure they have great coffee/espresso to pair with whatever you decide to order. I've stopped hanging out in the East Village too much but thanks to this place, I may start again!

Perfect spot for an afternoon or late night tea and cake! There's so many options to choose from, it's almost overwhelming. hubby & I hared a strawberry napoleon, a baba au rhum and the chocolate hazelnut mini tarte. Everything was absolutely delicious, specially the strawberry napoleon! It's pastry heaven in here!

I hear good things about their canollis, but have yet to try one. Came in to buy a cake near closing time and had great service anyways. Even let me and my friend sample very thin pieces since we were debating between two cakes. Both tasted good.

Legendary place with legendary pastries in bite sized portions - the cheese cake is obviously heavenly but they have some pretty good tarts too. The canolis were not much to write home about.

My family and I have been obsessed with Veniero's for over a decade. Cannolis, cakes, cookies, you name it... Its all insanely delicious. My family's all time favorite dessert is the Fruit Supreme Cake. Its a sponge cake, with light delicious cream, and covered with fruits/slivered almonds. Its absolutely amazingly delicious and its not very sweet which is a plus. It has the perfect balance of sweetness and freshness from the fruits. The Fruit Supreme cake is such a big hit in my family that for my cousin's sweet sixteen (12 years ago) and my sweet sixteen (7 years ago) we both had a 4 tiered Fruit Supreme Cake! It was awesome; everyone in attendance of both parties raved about the cake!

I want to try everything on the menu. Seems like a great place to take a date who has a sweet tooth. Or, adversely, it's probably a good place to drown your sorrows if you're alone. The cake I had was fresh, flavorful, and not too sweet. Seemed like it could get crowded, though I went during an off-time.
