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.
