Sugar and Plumm

257 Bleecker Street
New York City, NY 10014
(212) 388-5757

Sugar and Plumm was an unexpected surprise as we made our way from one macaron shop to another. The cute purple awning and the spinning pinwheels in the window, all I had to do was point there and Howard understood. Let's take a look inside:
There are shelves full of candy and packaged gift items.
Baked goods for those grabbing breakfast, lunch, or snacks. It turns out they have a flagship bistro location in the upper west side where you can go sit down for a meal.
Beautiful chocolates lining the entire section of a display case. They just looks like delicious puzzle pieces here.
And what piqued my interest in the first place, macarons!
Some of their unique flavours were licorice and strawberry poppy, but I wasn't feeling brave enough to try either one of those (not a licorice fan at all).
In the end, Howard picked Passion Fruit, it's starting to become a staple in our macaron tour, and I went with Rosewater Lychee.
Similarly to Francois Payard Bakery, the Passion Fruit was paired with chocolate, which does hide the fruit flavour. The Rosewater Lychee could have also used more of a flavour punch, I wish it was just Lychee as it's one of my favourite fruits. The shells here are smooth and they don't shy away from colours.
