Franklin between Broadway and Church is a sleepy little street but while down in the lower Soho ‘hood yesterday we stumbled across a great bakery.
Designed in a vintage 40’s look in pale yellow and green decor, Billy’s bakery is fresh and cosy at the same time. We grabbed a cafe au lait and banana cupcakes iced in a creamed-nutella.
