Terrace Bagels Makes a Darn Good Black & White

Black and Orange from Terrace Bagels
I'm a sucker for holiday treats. And there's something about Halloween treats that are especially fun. The "black & orange" cookies ($2) at Terrace Bagel are no exception. While these traditional black & whites may don different colors for holidays (I've also spotted green and whites for St. Patrick's Day), year 'round they are among my favorite black & whites in the city...

What makes the black & whites so tasty at Terrace Bagel? Well, let's start with the cookie. It's moist and cakelike. Very nice to sink your teeth into. Their vanilla icing is pleasantly sweet, but not overly so. The chocolate icing actually tastes like chocolate. For me, the perfect black and white is one where both halves are equally delicious. No flavor favoritism. In my book, the black & whites at Terrace never disappoint.

Where do go for great black & whites?

I love black and whites and am always looking for great ones. I think my personal "best black and white in the city" is found at Bully's Deli on Broadway and 8th St. The perfect cakey yet crumby cookie with delicious chocolate and vanilla icing. I haven't found a better one yet! Try it! Plus, they are always making them fresh and then they are displayed in the front window, so it's hard not to love them.
