The West Village location of Dominique Ansel is similar to the original in Soho, just without the cronut. If you can live without that delicious Frankenstein pastry, though, then you'll find similar baked goods - which are some of the best in the city - as well as shorter lines and more seating. In the summer, they offer phenomenal soft serve from a to-go window, which you should eat at one of the outdoor tables on 7th Avenue.
