NYC Landmarks: A Hunt To Satisfy The Sweet Tooth

There comes a time in every school year when students need to relax and reward themselves for their hard work. With that being said, there’s no better way to unwind than with an eating utensil and a flaky, crispy, creamy, chocolatey, hot, fluffy, rich, or light dessert.

NYC is a tourist magnet for a myriad of reasons, and the food is no exception. This means that Manhattan isn’t the only borough where great treats can be found.

A variety of different desserts that will be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

One such place is Lulu’s Bakery in Fresh Meadows on Union Turnpike. Don’t let its small exterior fool you, as a whole world of treats awaits inside. They harbor a wide variety of desserts to try, varying from the traditional cakes, pies, and donuts to tiramisu and cannolis.

It’s a great place to stop by for high-quality desserts at an affordable price. I purchased 4 tiramisu, 2 brownies, and two cannolis for under $15. Although, be forewarned that pies and cakes are only sold whole, so asking for a slice of cheesecake was out of the question.

If you plan on having a party and need to make a big order, they take orders in bulk that you pick up. This should not be confused with catering, which they don’t do. Their hours are 7:30 AM to 7:00 pm from Monday to Saturday and 7:30 am to 5:00 pm on Sundays.

They’re not the best place for dining in, but if you want to surprise that special someone with their favorite dessert, Lulu’s definitely has what you’re looking for.

For as long as I could remember, I have been motivated and sometimes inspired by my overactive imagination. At first, I considered it a curse growing because it made it so hard to focus in school. But like anything in life, I’m attempting to learn how to work with it. Ideas such as joining the wrestling team, NTHS, and ways to better my daily life with activities such as fitness stem from my imagination; dreaming of being the best I can be. If I’m not exercising or enjoying time with my friends, I could be found immersed in video games, exploring someone else’s imaginative creation.
