Billy's Bakery StorefrontIcebox cakeBanana Pudding CakeChocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Each day at Billy’s, everything is still made from scratch. From our (pretty well known) Icebox Cake to our (pretty darn well known) Red Velvet Cupcakes—it’s as real as our grandmothers used to make. For us, that smell when you walk into a real local bakery is almost as important as the taste. And we’re never going to lose that. For Billy's, it's all about real ingredients, authentic recipes, and real people making it happen.

Stop by our shops in Chelsea, Tribeca, or the Upper West Side — and let our family take care of yours.

Join us as we Celebrate Homemade!

Two people with drinks from Playdate NYC

Step inside PLAYDATE NYC, a unique culinary and cultural experience for our guests. Located in the heart of Flushing, our unique store combines the tastes of our neighborhood with a sprinkle of pop art personality and an aisle of games inspired by the night markets on the other side of the world.

This idea originated from a group of friends who combined their knack for playing, exploring and eating in Asia with their American upbringing. We wanted to bring everything we loved into one place so that anyone and everyone in NY could feel that sense of vibrancy and connectedness that we felt while abroad.

About the Artist

Beads and gems, fashion and crafting have fascinated Lara Danmola from an early age. Her passion for this beautiful art started in 1990 as a hobby for personal expression and satisfaction, which quickly became an addictive hobby. She found it to be fun, relaxing and rewarding. To enhance her knowledge about her new passion, she attended several jewelry making courses from great establishments like Jewelry Art Institute New York, F.I.T, Newark Museum and Y.M.C.A. New York City.

Through trial and error, Lara developed her own styles. Eventually she started designing and making more jewelry during the holiday seasons, giving them to family and friends as holiday gifts. The rest were sold at a craft shop in Flemington, New Jersey. She has been designing and making jewelry since then. Her particular specialties include custom designing and making unique pieces using gemstone and precious metals. Lara has also taught jewelry making at club workshops, birthday parties, her local Michaels craft store and was a visiting craft instructor at Seton Hall University. Nowadays she happily divides her time between designing and making jewelry, learning, teaching and parenting. Lara lives in NJ with her wonderfully supportive husband.
