Boerum Hill, Brooklyn
448 Atlantic Avenue
I’ve always eyed this bakery when walking past it on Atlantic Avenue, but I have never quite made it inside. When I saw their table outside the shop during the recent Atlantic Antic—an annual can’t-miss street festival, the oldest and largest in Brooklyn—I stopped to give one of their cupcakes a try.
It was a solid no-nonsense cupcake. Nothing fancy but some sprinkles, the chocolate cake did the job with a sweet berry punch of strawberry frosting.
Stop at Betty’s for a sweet break when shopping Atlantic Avenue, where you can get spices, furniture, knick-knacks, or maybe even a wedding dress.
