What You'll Get
The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Spread your confectionary affection with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh-baked treats at LaSalle Bakery in the Bronx.
Each day, LaSalle Bakery conjures a massive menu of edibles from fresh dough, sugar, and frosting. The warm, sweet aroma of fresh-baked morning treats such as croissants ($1.65), jelly and cream donuts ($.95), and muffins ($.95) will make sleepy noses feel like they're still dreaming, especially when they realize they're not wearing any clothes. LaSalle's apple ($1.75) and blueberry turnovers ($1.95), meanwhile, provide a topsy-turvy breakfast that's far easier to eat than an upside-down bowl of Lucky Charms. Day-brightening smiley face cookies and black-and-whites ($1.50) will meet your longing gaze from fully stocked display cases. Buy your coworkers' friendship or silence with a bag of premium butter cookies ($11.50 per pound) or Italian biscotti ($8.50 per pound). Loaves of take-home breads, including Italian ($2.25) and rye ($3.50), meanwhile, provide a well-crusted base for any sandwich or bread fort. LaSalle can also pack your lunch for you with a 7" personal pizza on either white or whole-wheat focaccia bread ($3.95–$4.50).
A participant in the seventh annual Cupcakes for a Cause week to benefit CancerCare for Kids, LaSalle Bakery is as committed to beneficence as they are to deliciousness. Additionally, unsold bread and pastries are lovingly donated to charity each day. Though stale loaves of bread have traditionally been used as ironic truncheons for suppressing hunger strikes, today's Groupon to LaSalle Bakery lets you use the power of fresh-baked dough for good while still feeding the soul.
- You are immediately bombarded with the smell of fresh baked breads and assorted sweets. Fresh made donuts line the trays behind the counter, jelly, Boston crème, sugar cream, cinnamon bun, muffins and the other usual suspects [sic] in a donut line-up looking back, waiting to wreck havoc on anyone’s diet plans. – Torianio's "La Buena Vida"
- La Salle Bakery has the best baked goods and great atmosphere. Try the onion pockets with butter!!!They also have panini for lunch. You can sit down and enjoy an italian gelato. – Maria S., Insider Pages
