Niche eateries are the culinary trend no one seems to be able to get enough of, just like the food items they're devoted to. Add New York's upcoming cream cheese cafe to a list that already includes cereal, avocados, mayonnaise, cookie dough, peanut butter on toast and marshmallows. Sugary treats and spreadables — when it comes to dedicated restaurants, they seem to hit the sweet spot.
Indeed, when it sets up shop in NYC's East Village over the American summer, Becky's Bites will offer both. Given that cream cheese is quite the versatile — and delicious — substance, the new venture will serve desserts and savoury snacks. Start off with a bagel filled with the good stuff, then move on to cream cheese parfaits, cream cheese tarts, cream cheese cookie sandwiches and even cream cheese-filled chocolates. A cream cheese-topped hot chocolate might also make an appearance.

The store, which will be the bricks-and-mortar digs for the existing catering company of the same name, will also offer up cream cheese in more flavours than you might expect. Vanilla, strawberry, peanut butter and cookies n' cream might all sound standard, but apple pie, cappuccino and bacon and egg definitely aren't. For other creative concoctions, there'll also be a cream cheese flavour of the month.
