As much as you want to avoid them (especially after that New Year’s resolution to lose those extra pounds), bakeries in Queens are essential for supplying us with muffins, breads, cakes, cupcakes and more for special occasions — or if you just have a sweet tooth.

But when you need something from a bakery, make sure to get it from this year’s Best Bakery in Queens!
