While running errands all over Manhattan in the last few months, I once stumbled upon this cute little pastel bakery on the Lower East Side, which, obviously, caught my sweet-tooth attention. Tu-lu's gluten-free bakery originated in Dallas, Texas, out of necessity for its founder, Tully Phillips, to enjoy her favorite treats after being diagnosed with gluten intolerance.
Walking into Tu-lu's is like walking inside a doll-house offering an adorable and scrumptious experience. Well-known for their cupcakes, they also offer a wide assortment of cookies, muffins, paninis made with their sunflower bread and frozen-cookie dough that you can bake at home, with some vegan options. I was lucky to taste one of their dairy-free baked Doughnut and Snickerdoodle cookie, both deliciously sweet and gingery! Need a pick me up on that rainy Thursday? Well, you know what to do and where to go now!
