Village Voice's Description
This bakery has been serving sweets in Chelsea Market since before it morphed into a tony shopping mall. The space is narrow and bright, with pristine white walls and glass counters filled with baked goods set against bright pink flourishes. There is a reason why all of the cookies look so good; each one is iced by hand. They¹re quite good gifts, seeing as you can get them shaped like everything from butterflies and baseballs to taxicabs and high-heeled shoes. Special events like the Oscars get their own celebrity-themed cookies. There are plenty of cupcakes as well, available in flavors like red velvet, Oreo and a chocolate and vanilla mix. Pick up something in the store or call ahead for special party packages; the staff will even come to your house with custom treats. Everything made by Eleni's is certified Kosher and completely free of nuts.—Keith Wagstaff
Tips from foursquare
Sandra Lee, of Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate, recommends the classic cookie company, Eleni's for their cupcakes and artistically decorated sugar cookies. Find more tips at FN Local.
Stop in a gawk at all the beautiful cakes on display and have a free sample cookie. Great place to order event specific baked good – like their Oscar Cupcakes!
Eleni’s has a themed cookie for every occasion. For “Twilight” fans, they’re selling edible “Team Jacob” t-shirts.
Pick a cookie any cookie - you can't go wrong. It's a total sugar rush - I go daily. I need help.
They do amazing (but PRICEY) themed cookies for the Oscars and Tony Awards.
