“Oh my gluten-free and vegan option goodness. I am SO in love with Rose&Basil. If you fancy dessert and want it yummy but don't want to feel too guilty over your sweet tooth, Rose&Basil is the perfect place to check out. The mini cakes are super soft, light, and not too sweet; this is great for me because I always complain about desserts being too sweet/my family is diabetes-prone. ”
“Alice in Wonderland vibe with sweet desserts and a damn good iced matcha latte. Uhm hello, this is exactly what I was looking for in my hunt for the best matcha latte! A frothy top and a sweet latte made with your choice of milk but I chose almond. #basic, I know. ”
“This place is like a dream. Everything is so pretty inside and outside as well. The ceilings and walls are decorated with roses and the front has a lot of cute decorations as well. There is minimal seating in the front but there are extra tables in the back.”
“Went back another time with the same friend. Tried the rose latte, lavendar latte, and shared their rose & basil cake. Still great lattes. The cake was light tasting and not overwhelming. The flavor combination was good and did not taste like you were eating perfume or soap. Still love the relaxed vibe. It really feels like you are going into someone's living room for a few hours. Will return to try their breakfast jars.”
“I was stuck between picking the lavender latte or the rose latte. I had to ask the server for her opinion and she said she loved the lavender latte so I decided to take her advice. Man, their lavender latte was so yummy! It was also cute they actually put lavender herbs on the top of the foam.”
“Their food presentation is very unique. It was really good experience and made my girlfriends trip to New York complete. We will try to make it back soon. My overall experience with this place was marvelous, their customer service was charming and filled us both in on everything they had on the menu. ”
“ible custom cakes! Tried out this bakery after seeing them on TV for my girlfriend's birthday, and they totally nailed it. Cakes were very reasonably priced for things that look like works of art. Much more reasonable than many other dessert or cake places in NYC. Cool decor too.”
