About Us

Donna Bell's Bake Shop is owned by Matthew Sandusky and Pauley Perrette.

Nestled in the heart of bustling, midtown Manhattan, our take-out shop is named after Pauley's late mom - Donna Bell. She is the inspiration for all the wonderful recipes Matthew (and his staff of five) create in their teeny, tiny, little kitchen. Everything from the savory scratch biscuits, to the REAL chicken-n-dumplings, luscious stack cakes, giant chocolate chip cookies, or fresh banana pudding are ALL homemade and handmade (with lots of love).


Because of our small size, quantities and variety may vary from day to day. We begin our mornings baking everything fresh at 4am. Occasionally we do get tired or sell-out so COME EARLY

Due to the thousands of employees located near the shop - Monday through Friday are days with the best variety. On the weekends we sell small batches of customer favorites. 

Remember we are small.....

Although we are tiny, we do a lot in 300 square feet. While shopping at local markets, we choose the freshest ingredients of the day - so whether it is availability or sudden inspiration - our menu changes slightly from day to day.

Upon opening at 6am, customers are delighted by the aroma of hot pastries that go straight from oven to counter. At 7am hot breakfast items such as oatmeal, quiche, biscuits and gravy, and our FAMOUS breakfast sandwiches are served. Please download breakfast menu for times and details. 

Promptly at 11:30am lunch begins with an offering of delicious homemade hot and deli sandwiches. Fresh soups, casseroles, and side items round out the menu. 

The afternoon brings us desserts such as cakes, cookies, bars, and cupcakes. Although we do not technically cater, you can order wholes cakes, bar platters, and others desserts. Remember always allow 48 hours notice for all large orders. Download the menu above for more details.  

As the evening comes to a close, the selection will dwindle. Occasionally we sell-out and close early. If there are leftovers, they are promptly donated to the local church.
