Tribeca Treats (Closed)
94 Reade St.
(bet. W. Broadway and Church)

Owner/confectioner Rachel Thebault—who is often visible in the open kitchen—ditched her investment-banking career to focus on baking, and her love for it shows in her perfect little cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and chocolates. “Little” isn’t a pejorative: Thebault’s philosophy is that it’s easier to avoid overindulging when portions are reasonable. (The ice-cream sandwiches are full-size.) There’s a long-ish table with chairs for those who want to dig right in. The shop also sells cards and other gifty stuff. The made-to-order cakes are excellent. Closed March 2018.

  1. WTF?!! What’s wrong with this website? I want to order deliciousness and I cannot? Oh, the humanity!!!

  2. @Smithers – just checked the website, and it should be working. You can order cookies, brownies and chocolates online. Cakes & cupcakes have to be ordered directly through the store. Please feel free to call us to place an order or if you have any more trouble with the website. 212.571.0500. thanks!

  3. OK, maybe I am doing it wrong. “North to drop off, south to pick up, Moron.” I just can’t find anything to to click on. It’s not you, it’s me. I guess Erik isn’t going to get any cookies today. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe.

  4. @Jim: Not from you, maybe, but I WILL HAVE COOKIES.

  5. Wooohooo! Tribeca Treats Thursdays!! Erik’s “treating.”

  6. ok, it appears we’ve had a couple other comments recently that customers can’t see our menu bar on their computer. we are working on figuring out what that problem is–thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    in the meantime, @Smithers, orders can always be placed by phone…unless you’re afraid that will blow your cover.

  7. turns out the problem is browser-based. It should work if you’re using Firefox or Explorer. We saw it’s a problem on Safari and are getting that fixed. If there were any other browsers you had a problem with, please let me know.

  8. @Rachel – just leave the cookies by the door and I will leave a bag of cash. Don’t worry, nobody reads this website. Thanks.
