Absolutely awful! Burnt goods, some bad tasting (stale) and rude service. Never going back and I don't recommend anyone else to.

Golden apple award candidate. Great everything bakery. A must visit for anyone. Real butter, eggs, milk, flour, sugar. Just go there and indulge. They have the best cakes, pies, cookies, danishes, croissants, and pastry, of course.

Pros: Amaizing Food!

Cons: NONE!!!!!

After viewing the bakery owner's comments on fox's "Shame on You"... I highly suggest that as many people as possible boycott the Lafayette Bakery in Greenwich Village, NY, NY. His remarks regarding his creation of the "drunken negro face cookie" just exude ignonrance and are totally disrespectful. One way to protest his actions are to cause an effect to the flow of money and reputability to his shop.

Free speech and expression works well because where ignorance (like that of this baker's) arises it can be combated with civilized protest.

Take a stance for acceptance and tolerance. Please encourage those you know to civilly protest this man and his ignorant "drunken negro face cookies".

I wouldn't care if the product was made of gold I would give the rating a below 0 review.

All my friends will be boycotting this bakery because of his so called drunken whatever cookies (Obama like cookies) The baker has some nerve promoting this kind of garbage. The baker is lucky he has a shop and job to go to.

The Baker and the evil air wave maker (Limbaugh) are two of a kind: in the business of hurting people, making fun of people and spreading evil. The result of an unhappy person. There is no place for that kind of behavior in today's world. It is simple: Do not go into the bakery. Do not listen to the Limbaugh show. Better yet; ignore them both. They will soon self destruct.

I just had to try a Drunken Negro Head Cookie, despite all the controversy. So I sent a white friend in to the bakery to pick one up, and guess what? THEY WERE THE BEST COOKIES THAT I EVER HAD!!! I wish they weren't so horribly, disgustingly, racist-ly soul-crushingly dehumanizing. Because, if they weren't, I would buy them by the dozens. Oh well, they're also too fattening.

These cookies are RACIALICIOUS!!!

Pros: local business which needs our support

Cons: totally xenophobic in every way

Karma's a b*tch, keep the boycott alive!!! to say nothing of the fact that there about 5 bakeries in the vicinity with simply better products. Hes a fat stupid ugly bigot and this isn;t the first time he has brazenly said crazy r*cist stuff in front of patrons, including kids. He's a menace and should hopefully be without a business soon enough........then we can start a new bakery and make sure that sad-faced unemployed bigot baker cookies are the first out of the oven. BOYCOTT THIS PLACE!!!!!

Pros: Owner was wearing a sparkling white sheet

Cons: "Negro Heads" were made with cheap ingredients like milk chocolate and maraschino cherries!!!

.

All these people who have nothing else to do but make a big deal about nothing need to get a life!!!!! I can't wait until this place re-opens. I will be there everyday to show my support. Having the ability to make these cookies is one of the freedoms that makes this country so great. When the country is in shambles which is where it is headed, these cookies may make a come back. Instead of disturbing the neighborhood these people need to go back to theirs and leave the Lafayette Bakery alone. Long live Lafayette Bakery!!!!!

Pros: great/creative food

Cons: protesters outside/local news crews giving it bad publicity

I guess if I were a drunken negro with a face deformity I would be offended. But I am not so I am not. People tend to jump onto the race card a bit to fast in this day and age. What happened to innocent until proven guilty. Probably not appropiate what this guy did but what if it was just a case of bad judgement instead of racisim? There is not anyone who has not made a bad mistake before. I do not believe this guy has been proved as a biggot just because the press says so. He may be-He may not be ant is the scary part abou this
-Pork Chop-

Pros: If he meant it as a r---st comment he has got his.

Cons: What if his intent was to be funny and he just made a bad judgment call?

The owner my whine that he is the victim of some "PC Thought Police". That simply is not the case. Racists are certainly entitled to their opinion no matter how vile. What they for get is their customers are also entitled to their opinion, which, as it turns out, is not to go to this awful, awful place.

People get away with things when they are comfortable knowing there will be little repercussions. Maybe he received some negative press from Fox 5 and lost a hand full of customers, but he's not going out of business. It is somewhat surprising, being that Greenwich village is allegedly more liberal than other areas.

I would have paid to see him pull this off in another NY area......... say Harlem. How long are we going to let stuff like this slide? Even small bigoted gestures in the name of 'humor' left unchecked further erode our civility and humanity.

Pros: the more exposure he gets, the more people will see him for what he is.

Cons: he's still in business

Pastries should be made with love, these are made with hate by a not very bright baker. Don't believe me? Go to youtube and look this place up then decide for yourself. There are so many incredible bakeries and pattiseries in the city. Skip this one at all costs.

You are so brazen and poorly informed to even suggest a negro cookie on inauguration day to sell such your products. The Hudson incident is not the same thing. If are looking for something to jump start your business find another way to do because this does not work for you. Well, you have heard the last from your customers when the country is trying to heal the wounds of the past, you are bringing divisive tactics to sell your products. You may have guts and may wish ill for the new president but you have seen the last of your business. No threats whatsoever but you will get what is your worth in the near future. You are a are a sick man. Even journalists could sense your arrogance and disdain in the interview. You are a shameful french man. We will avoid your cookies like a plague. You are a loser... period

And it gets worse when Fox's Arnold Diaz goes into the store with a camera and microphone to confront Kefalinos, who suddenly makes Joe the Plumber look like a Rhodes scholar. "I called them Drunken Negro Heads. What's the problem with that?" Kefalinos asks the newscaster with a smirk. "On Inauguration Day I thought it would be cool to change the name to Obama Heads. I just changed it for the day." We suppose Burning Cross Bananas Foster was too complicated to mass-produce.

I have been a customer for the past 12 years, but after the offensive story on Fox 5 this week, I will never shop there again. The owner thought it was funny to make drunken negro face cookies in honor of the Obama inauguration. While sharing your opinions is welcomed ,belittling and degrading groups of people in the process is not what this country stands for. I hope others will join me in saying no thanks--- express your feelings by calling and not shopping there. I will miss the petite chocolate cakes with chocolate shavings, but I prefer to have my humanity respected more. So long!

the supertragic part of the news story on this guy's evil cookies, was that no one tried one.
layfayette is an old school bakery where many of his offerings are tasty and many others aweful.
the news story seemed like they were beating up on the moron. this baker is not a smart man,
if you tour ny and talk to the bakers you will find plenty of other malevolent idiots.

that said Ted at Lafayette is super nice to the school kids and has been a favorite in the most
liberal open neighborhood in NY for decades, he must be doing something right. I do hope
he has learned that he was wrong and gets rid of the chocolate negro head cookies.

I have never been to Lafayette Bakery and from what I saw on Fox 5 news tonight I never will. There are so many other excellent bakeries in the city that do not make off-color statements on their baked goods. The owner was apparently selling "Drunken Negro Cookies" on Tuesday to celebrate the inauguration. and "dead goose bread" to make light of the US Airways Flight 1459 making an emergency landing because of the flock of geese that took out it's left engine. Indulgences such as cookies, bread and cake should bring about happiness and joy..not inspire hate!

If I was on death row I'd want their coconut cake as my last meal. It's a major effort for me not to eat something from here every day. In fact, I even had it as my wedding cake. When my parents visit from Ohio the bakery is a must visit stop for delicious breakfast pastries. They do take the month of August off for vacation so make sure you plan around that.

Needing a sugar fix, my husband and I walked in here to find a wall to wall adornment of delightful confections. I had a rich and delicious chocolate mini-cake and my husband had a creme filled pastry. Both were fantastic...but the best part was the very friendly man behind the counter offering suggestions and being very patient with us as we decided. I will return here again and again.
