    This is a special place, the kind you remember, but can never find. By the Way Bakery is an old-fashioned bakery where everything is made by hand, from scratch, in small batches. And, by the way, all of our baked goods are gluten-free and dairy-free. They're also certified kosher. Most important, everything we make is as delicious as – if not better than – most conventional baked goods.


    Blueberry muffins bursting with blueberries. A lemon layer cake made with fresh lemon zest and filled with homemade lemon curd. A chocolate chip cookie made with the finest Belgian chocolate. A smile you can taste.


    Come visit us to find out why so many people have fallen in love with our bite-size little shops!

    The winter has passed...and the blossoms have appeared


    Wishing you a sweet Pesach!

    Please note: Our baked goods are always wheat-free, dairy-free, and kosher pareve. All of the items on our holiday menu are consistent with the Sephardic tradition of using kitniyot (rice and corn) during Passover. However, our baked goods are NOT kosher for Passover because our ingredients, while certified kosher, are not certified “Kosher for Passover”.

    Please place your Passover order
    no later than Friday, April 3rd

    What ingredients do you use instead of wheat and dairy? We make our own gluten-free flour mix and use various dairy alternatives, depending on the product. We have a list of ingredients and allergens for every product (including those with only seasonal availability) for your review at each of our locations. We also have a copy here:


    BTW Ingredient Summary


    Are all of your products gluten-free? Yes. Our kitchen is a dedicated gluten-free facility. Our products are recommended by the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University.


    Are all of your products dairy-free? Yes. There’s milk for the coffee, but you won’t find any dairy products in the BTW kitchen. In fact, our baked goods are certified kosher pareve.


    Are you kosher? Yes, everything we bake is kosher pareve. OK Kosher Certification, one of the world's leading and most recognized kosher certification agencies, supervises By the Way Bakery's daily baking operations at our commissary kitchen in Pleasantville, NY. The BTW commissary provides all of the baked goods sold in our retail stores and produces all of our pre-packaged goods. Our four By the Way Bakery retail locations are under the supervision of Rabbi Aaron Mehlman of National Kosher Supervision.


    Are you a nut free bakery? No. Some but not all of our recipes include tree nuts. While we do have products that do not contain tree nuts, there is always a risk of cross-contamination. Among the tree nuts found in our kitchen are pecans, walnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts. In addition, many of our products contain coconut. Please review our Ingredient Summary before placing your order.


    Are any of your products vegan? No, because we use eggs (eggs aren't dairy). After years of trying, we've yet to come up with a vegan option that meets our standards. However, our rugelach is egg-free.


    Do you make custom layer cakes? We LOVE making custom cakes, especially wedding cakes! Please take a look at the photo gallery and our Cake Book to see just a few of the custom cakes we’ve made, then give us a call so we can design a special cake just for you. Please note that many custom cake designs require a minimum of three days' notice. However, we offer a selection of personalized cakes that can be ordered up to 48 hours in advance. See our "48-hour" layer cake guide for the available options. And no worries! Each of our four stores receives a variety of 6" layer cakes each morning.


    Can you accommodate large orders? Yes! Please send an email to custom@btwbakery.com to discuss catering options.


    Do you deliver? Sorry - only for catering orders over $450 (bar mitzvahs, weddings, large corporate events, etc.), for an additional fee that's based on the day and time of the delivery, as well as the distance from our commissary kitchen in Pleasantville, New York, where we do all of our baking.


    Do you ship? No. That’s a very different business. But our staff is always happy to help you select the items that will ship best if you want to do the packing and shipping yourself.


    Additional questions or concerns? Please send an email to custom@btwbakery.com and someone on our team will get back to you promptly.

    "Best bakery EVER!"

    We care about the health of our customers and their families, as well as our staff.


    We are actively following the guidelines and directives from the CDC, the NYC Department of Health, and other reliable sources.


    The COVID-19 virus is spread through contact with other people, not through the preparation of food.


    At all of our stores and our baking facility, we have taken additional steps to heighten protocol on all of our sanitation efforts. As always, we are thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing surfaces in our shop throughout the day, with added frequency given the current situation.


    We are also providing resources to help our team stay informed and supported, and to ensure no one comes to work who is feeling under the weather or unsafe.


    Lastly, we are making some temporary changes, including the end of sampling for now, to help guests stay safe and healthy. The most important thing you can do is thoroughly wash your hands after any contact with the outside world.


    We'll continue to uphold cleanliness standards with extra diligence, doing everything we can to make your life a little sweeter during these difficult times.
