  • freshly baked jelly doughnuts with your choice of jelly are heaven (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • An over 90-year-old bakery with some great, uncommon breads. Wine breads, ryes, and sourdoughs are very nice.
  • Orwashers delivers its loaves daily to gourmet markets including Citarella, Dean and Deluca, Zabars and Gourmet Garage. Translation: you want them in your kitchen.
  • Get the cinnamon raisin bread
  • They have the BEST jelly donut, BUT it's $4.25!
  • The jelly doughnuts here are incredible, plain and simple.
  • Everything is amazing but you can't leave without having a freshly filled jelly donut!
  • The hand filled donut with red raspberry jelly is to die for. You must go in and get it!!
  • Their website states that Orwashers Bakery is New Yorks original artisan bakery.
  • Excellent bread, scones and pain au chocolate. Even their coffee is excellent and not a lot of bakeries do coffee well. Five stars!
  • The donuts and bagels were amazing. Seems very authentic. Casual, and the ladies behind the counter were super nice.
  • Amazingly good bakery and great coffee!
  • Everything is good here. Their black and white cookies are the best in the city.
  • So much goodness here but dont miss their New York seeded rye best rye bread Ive ever had!
  • Or washers is one of the best bakeries in NYC. Food is always fresh & delicious. During peak hours theres a line, its worth the wait. Rye bread, caraway sticks, and black & white cookies are A+
  • Jelly doughnuts are worth a trip out of your way!
  • Bread & croissants au chocolat as tasty as in France or Switzerland, very nice quality, good latte and cute place (bread starting at 4.50 USD, croissant au chocolat at 4)
  • One of the few bakeries that deserve calling themselves a bakery.
  • The Hanukkah jelly doughnuts are great. Nice dough, and excellent jam variety. They are not the most photogenic, but they are huge (which may explain why they are on the pricy side).
  • They take the wonder out of jelly filled donuts and then fill it with jelly
