Inside AnnTremet’s Flagship Bakery in the West Village

AnnTremet interior West Village

Nestled in the heart of Manhattan’s West Village, AnnTremet Cake is a quaint bakery and dessert shop that specializes in artisanal mousse cakes, petite desserts and cookies, custom-made cakes, and sit-down afternoon tea experiences. In fact, the name AnnTremet is derived from the French word ‘entremet’, a mirror glaze cake. This name symbolizes the union of French artistry with the bakery’s unique flair.

AnnTremet was born from the passion and innovation of two culinary enthusiasts, with the flagship store celebrating their grand opening in May of 2022. Born in Beijing, China Annabelle Li attended university in the U.S. where she eventually met her husband, Peixin. It was here that the husband-and-wife duo experimented with the intricate mirror glaze technique before opening their shop together. The cakes at AnnTremet are innovative, delicate, and not overly sweet. As a matter of fact, the bakery items contain less sugar compared to the average American bakery! Each treat, from their signature Bunny Cheesecake to the Yuzu Matcha glazed cake, evokes luscious and subtle flavors that bakery enthusiasts crave.
