Went on a Thursday morning to try a cronut after reading about them online. When I got there the line was very reasonable, probably only 4 people ahead of me. Wish I had tried more items! Very delicious.

The cruffins were good, but we really enjoyed the savory pastries more. The store is very small, but there wasn’t a long line the day we visited. It was fun walking around town and seeing others with their box of pastries. Go and grab a...More

The forum was right, the pastries are wonderful at Mr.Holmes! Our walk was short from our Union Square hotel and only a few people were waiting for the Cruffins to come out of the oven. Mango that morning. It was worth the wait. We bought...More
