Downtown and uptown—pick one or do ’em both.
Whether you want to head uptown for long leisurely, or need a place that welcomes freelancers seeking strong coffee, Inwood has a breakfast spot for you.
To celebrate the foods and the history of Washington Heights and Inwood, we created a self-guided tour of restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets and historical landmarks in the neighborhood.
With help from NY1, we took a peek into a 23-year-old bakery in Inwood to learn more about bizcocho, or what the Dominicans call cake. This spot is particularly beloved for its tres leches.
The classic cake called tres leches—literally “three milks”—features heavy cream, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. Bizcocho de Colores bakery in Inwood gilds the lily with whipped cream and dulce de leche.
