Doma Café, the popular West Village hangout, serves a superb coffee cake, but it’s not baked there. Nosher knows who bakes it: Jay+Dan. This small custom and wholesale operation, whose slogan promises “freshly baked bliss,” also makes a wide variety of cakes, cookies, and other treats.

For those who have enjoyed the carrot cake at Eisenberg’s, the ageless Flatiron lunch counter, foodluvngal has found out where it’s from. A baker named Kimberly makes it, and she fills custom orders as well. It is the most delicious you will ever eat, swears foodluvngal: “It ain’t cheap, but it’s so worth it.”
