Trippy and Decadent Pastries Fill NYC’s Newest Bakery

Supermoon Bakehouse opens tomorrow with filled croissants and doughnuts

New York City’s newest bakery enters the scene this Saturday, October 7, debuting various filled croissants and doughnuts, including the famed cruffin. Supermoon Bakehouse is a follow-up to San Francisco’s popular Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, where the cruffin — a croissant baked like a muffin — shot to viral stardom.

Ry Stephen is the baker behind the pretty treats, which feature decadent fillings like lox cream cheese and whole caramel bananas. Those over-the-top pastries, alongside co-owner Aron Tzimas’ cheeky design, including iridescent boxes and a neon “Bite me, NYC” sign, position Supermoon to follow in Mr. Holmes’ viral footsteps.

Supermoon’s crazy flavors and Millennial-baiting design might make it sound like just another savvy business capitalizing on Instagram food culture. But Stephen developed a rep in SF for slinging out pastries that go beyond the visuals.

Here’s a look at the bakery and its pimped-out pastries. Supermoon opens on Saturday, October 7 at 8 a.m. at 120 Rivington Street at Essex Street.
