ICYMI: NYC’s Pride week officially kicked off on Sunday. Pride is without a doubt one of the most magical times in the city. NYC comes alive with people from all across the country—even the world. For many, the Pride festival is the only chance they get to truly express themselves. In light of recent events, it’s important now more than ever to rally our support for the gay community. Below, we’re rounding up places to find rainbow eats in honor of Pride month. Whether you’re LGBTQ+ or an ally, these colorful foods are sure to brighten up your week.
Everyone’s favorite breakfast food got a colorful makeover this year, thanks to Brooklyn’s The Bagel Store. The Rainbow Bagel is a Pride-approved way to start your day. Bonus: It’ll cure your hangover if you celebrate too hard.
Location: 349 Bedford Ave.
Ice & Vice is a rainbow paradise. From candy colored cones to sprinkle-decked marshmallow toppers — color is everywhere. They’re partnering with UberEATS between 6/24 – 6/26 for the ‘Love Wins’ sammie: Mexican vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two rainbow cake cookies (dipped in white chocolate, of course!). It’s super Insta-worthy, so you can spread the love with #lovewins.
Location: 221 East Broadway
The Birthday Cake Truffles from Momofuku Milk Bar are a classic, and they’re the perfect bite-sized way to ring in Pride. The rainbow sprinkles give a subtle nod to the city’s festivities. Locations are open until 11pm (midnight on weekends), so you can get your late-night fix.
