There's something to be said about waking up in this busy, overcrowded city, and taking the time to seek out a warm croissant or crusty baguette before the day truly begins. If you already do this, you're a champ. If you would like us to recommend places for you to find freshly baked bread, cookies, and pastries in NYC, you've come to the right place.

May we suggest a bakery in Spanish Harlem where you'll find foreign-born women baking bread and pastry—including Moroccan m'smen and Armenian lavash—from their respective homelands? Or, an East Village pastry shop offering chocolate babka and baked in-house rugelach? No matter what your budget and style is, one of these bakeries is sure to make it into your weekly rotation.

Here are our five favorite bakeries in NYC.
