If you don't live in NYC, don't fret. Milk Bar actually ships their cookies, pies, and cereal milk (yes, it is milk that tastes like corn flakes - whoa) now. February 9th is the last day they are accepting orders for Valentine's Day. It's coming up people! Click here to check out their menu. Click here to see their shipping menu.

Momofuku Milk Bar
If you are in the mood for dessert, and want something off the beaten path, try Momofuku's Milk Bar. There are actually two locations, one in the East Village and the other in Midtown. I have only been to the East Village spot. It is dimly lit with a chalkboard menu behind the dessert-filled counter, along with tall tables with bar stools that fill the space. I have stopped in there a couple of times for their compost cookies, but the last time I was there I tried their Old Fashioned Donut Soft Serve. OMG! It tasted seriously exactly like an old fashioned doughnut, except cold and soft. I also love the way they serve it - a small cup overflowing with ice cream and a cute wooden spoon to make you feel like you are in first grade again. Besides their soft serve and cookies, people rave about the Crack Pie, which my friend described to me as pecan pie, without the pecans, just the sugary filling. Sounds gross to me, but I am not the norm.
