My family and I visited the bakery one afternoon for a sweet snack between meals. We got some banana pudding and a couple of cupcakes to share. Everything was really good, especially the banana pudding.

Absolutely can not understand what all the "to do" is about. A block away, the Bouley bakery is much better.
