Catch It: Soutine Bakery

Years ago, my Aunt Cynthia moved from Manhattan to Ardmore, Pennsylvania. When she told me of her plans, I selfishly thought of our Sunday’s together—how much I would miss her home-made apple pie; our conversations over coffee, pie and Butter Pecan Ice Cream. Those memories returned one afternoon as soon as I wandered into Soutine Bakery at 104 West 70th Street (Off Columbus Avenue) New York, NY 10023.

Soutine Bakery is a small quaint space, however before one steps in, you can smell the aroma of sweet, wholesome baking on the street; as if you were cooking from your own home. My big brown eyes were wide-opened with pure joy when I saw an apple pie on the counter. Temptations were upon me, such as: Blueberry Pie, Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie, and Pumpkin Pie—each a favorite.

I invited my neighbor over for tea two days later, on a Sunday. Jan brought French Vanilla Ice Cream, and we both could not stop talking about the scrumptious apple pie from Soutine Bakery.
