Still relatively new to the neighborhood, White Cake bakery (on 43rd Ave between 48th and 49th) is much more than just a bakery. They certainly offer an assortment of pastries, but there is also a light food menu, including even a special brunch menu on weekends.
There aren’t too many tables inside, and the place seems to be popular, so we actually had to wait a few minutes to snag a table during brunchtime on a Sunday.
What looks like a mysterious concoction is just coffee. These jar-mug hybrids are used for a number of drinks.
A number of healthy items are available on the menu, including this carrot juice. There are a few vegetable-based shakes as well.
On the other end of the healthiness scale, they offer french toast, topped with strawberries. It’s a typical, fluffy, delicious french toast, but it could use some more fruit.
This may look like a burger, but it’s actually “breakfast sandwich #2” (sandwich #1 included bacon, which is why I opted for this one). Despite its mundane name, this is actually a pretty good dish, combining egg, cheese, and greens. It was very good, and certainly worth the price of around $7.
A sample of the various sweets available at the bakery. Overall the food and drinks were very enjoyable, and for very reasonable prices. The staff was a bit disorganized though, forgetting about parts of orders and a bit confused, but I think they are still getting used to the relatively large crowds that choose to brunch here.
