Becky’s Bites

OPENED119 DAYS AGO

New York City is known for its bagels, but everyone seems to overlook a bagel’s most delicious and obvious companion. Becky’s Bites is giving the unlikely NYC staple the true spotlight it deserves: cream cheese.  A shop unlike any other, Becky’s Bites creates a range of delicious goodies – that can double as breakfast or dessert – showcasing the creamy condiment.

The Spot:

Becky’s Bites is a small, take-out and delivery only shop located in the heart of the East Village, on 7th street right near Avenue A.  Dubbed “Dessert Row,” East 7th street acts as a prime location for Becky’s Bites: families, NYC veterans, and students alike all treck through the East Village hungrily every morning, looking for their bagel and cream cheese fix – both of which Becky’s Bites can satisfy.

The Food: 

Becky’s Bites revolves around cream cheese.  The shop sells a variety of sweet and savory goodies, from bagels, to parfaits, to tiny tarts, and cookie sandwiches, all locally sourced.  The cream cheese is from the Hudson Valley, and other staples, like coffee and bagels, are made right here in New York City.  Cream cheese-lovers can find original cream cheese spreads, like Cookies-N-Cream and Bacon, Egg, and (Cream) Cheese.  Sweeter options include “Beckaroos” – a tasteful play on the childhood favorite Dunkaroos – tiny cookie sandwiches, and chocolates.  The signature treats at the shop, however, are chocolate-dipped cream cheese bites.  These treats, while seemingly simple, sparked the idea for the store completely.  Owner Becky Rosenthal created chocolate-dipped cream cheese bites one evening while trying to satisfy her sweet tooth with something quick, creamy, and indulgent.  After her delicious concoction, she realized the lack of cream cheese goodness in New York City, and officially cornered the market.

The Damage:

Becky’s Bites are deliciously priced at $3.50 for a box of three, up to $25 for a box of 24 (boxes can include Chocolate Bites, Tiny Tarts, or Cookie ‘Wiches.)  1 dozen mini bagels run at $11, the breakfast parfait comes in at $4, and the “Childhood Throwbacks,” including Beckaroos, also come in at $4.

In a nutshell:

Becky’s Bites is a shop unlike any other in New York City.  It’s a one-stop-shop for your morning bagel-and-coffee run, and a great pit stop on your way home for something on the sweeter side.  Be one of the first to hop on NYC’s only cream cheese store.
