Becky's Bites is the Cream Cheese Café We Never Knew We Needed

Becky’s Bites, a new cream cheese café opened last week in the East Village and I'm psyched. Cream cheese has always been a breakfast sidekick, but this basic household staple just got a delicious makeover. The concept for the café began one evening when Becky Rosenthal’s desire to eat something indulgent, quick and delicious, led her to create the chocolate-dipped flavored cream cheese bites. Becky has now made it her mission to make New York City known for its cream cheese in the same way the city is famous for its bagels.

Rosenthal sources all of her cream cheese from Upstate New York and she’s proud to say all her products are New York-made. I loved all the creatively flavored cream cheeses, but the cookies and cream with crumbled Oreos was my absolute favorite. Other flavors include Becky’s #basic, cookies n’ cream, peanut butter, chocolate-covered strawberry, and funfetti birthday cake; as well as seasonal flavors.

In addition to its re-imagined cream cheese flavors, Becky’s Bites also offers a range of cream cheese-inspired treats. From tiny tarts and cookie sandwiches to parfaits and Beckaroos (a play on Dunkaroos), these bite-sized treats are the perfect amount of sweetness. Coffee or bottled milk is available for purchase—but if you want to go all in, get a hot chocolate with Becky's delicious cream cheese whipped cream.

The dessert-inspired cream cheese shop has a classic design with a modern twist channeling the playful nature of Becky’s lifelong idol, Lucille Ball.  The mint-colored exterior is warm and inviting while giving a nod to a vintage dairy farm vibe. Ashen red brick walls add a soft pink color to the interior which ties in perfectly to the cream and powder pink theme. The large white pendant lights, inspired from the 60’s, hang from the ceiling shining a light on the open kitchen which allows guests to watch and interact with Becky as she bakes.

Becky's Bites is only offering takeout and delivery, so stop in and grab a drink and few chocolate-dipped flavored cream cheese bites while you explore the East Village today. Hours are M-W 8 am-11pm, Th- Fr 8 am-12 am, Sa 9 am- 12 am, Su 9am– 11 pm.
