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!

THOUGHTS ON MOTHER'S DAY
special cakes for special occasions
or just because...
because everyone knows an exceptional woman
She walked away from a 22-year career in the law
to open a bakery...
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 things you can do are wear a mask, respect social distancing, and 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.
