Chef Dominique Ansel, inventor of the phenomenon known as the Cronut , refuses to be a one-hit wonder. He recently said of his croissant-doughnut hybrid , "I don't want the creation to kill the creativity. It's not so much about making the next Cronut. It's about making something other than the Cronut." Frozen s'more  popsicles and brioche-encased soufflés  are just a few other brilliant creations produced by Dominique that deserve credit, too! Take a look these and other notable nibbles available at the bakery.
Some customers turn their noses up when they arrive at the counter, and Cronuts are all sold out . Others recognize and capture the beautiful work done by the bakery, like this lovely customer who Instagrammed the pastry case and said, "All kinds of pastries at #dominiqueansel not just #cronut."
The Magic Soufflé
This week, Dominique Ansel introduced his latest creation, "The #MagicSouffle: A Grand Marnier chocolate soufflé all enclosed in a toasted orange blossom brioche."
Earlier in the Summer, Dominique Ansel debuted a sweet American mashup called the frozen s'more , which features a cube of vanilla ice cream, coated in chocolate wafers and a frozen marshmallow shell that's toasted to order.
DKA (Dominique's kouign-amann ) was the signature standby prior to the Cronut's arrival. Similar to a sugary croissant, it's still worth a try.
No French bakery is complete without a rainbow selection of macarons .
Cannelé de Bordeaux
With a caramelized exterior and custardy center, you can't go wrong with the petite cannelé de Bordeaux. Serious Eats even dubbed it a "best sweet bite of 2012 ."
Bakery Case Selections
Chocolate caviar tarts, salted caramel éclairs, and apricot sunflower tarts fill the colorful case.
These complimentary mini madeleine cookies are passed around  while customers wait in the excessive line, but they are also sold by the basket.
Whoa, whoa, whoa: we're going to throw you for a major loop here. The bakery serves savory items, too. According to one customer, Dominique's avocado toast is "the only reason I ever come to New York." That's a big statement.
If you arrive early enough, you can snag all of the bakery's famous treats: the Cronut, frozen s'more, "Magic Soufflé," DKA, and cannelé.
