If you're watching what you eat, it's time to avert your eyes. We just got word that Bowery hotspot The General opened up a brand new sweet shop, and the menu is all kinds of tempting. For starters, baristas will be serving up Stumptown's Hair Bender coffee, along with savory bites like pretzel bombs — a pocket of deliciousness filled with egg, cheese, and ham.
But, the true star of the menu is the line of cereal-inspired donuts. Yes, you read that right...cereal-inspired donuts. Pastry Chef Thiago Silva created hybrid treats like Coco Puffs with Coco Cream and Fruity Pebbles with Cereal Milk. Think of them as a full-on flashback to childhood, in the most delicious way. Luckily, there are several gyms within walking distance.
The General Bakery, 199 Bowery (at Spring Street); 212-271-7101.
