FAQ

WHERE DO YOU SHIP YOUR PASTRIES?

Currently, we ship the pastries on this website to the 48 contiguous U.S. state. We are not able to ship to HI, AK, APO or FPO designations, or internationally at this time.  


I LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY. CAN I PICK UP YOUR PASTRIES INSTEAD OF HAVING THEM SHIPPED? 

If you live in NYC, you are welcome to visit Dominique Ansel Bakery in Soho to purchase and enjoy our pastries in person. You can also head to our NYC Website (DominiqueAnselNY.com) to place online pre-orders for pick-ups in-store (with 48 hrs notice).  Alternatively, we also offer a select assortment of our menu for local NYC delivery via Caviar (check the Caviar app/website to see if you’re within the delivery radius). Please note that this website (DominiqueAnselOnline.com) is for SHIPPING ONLINE; purchases on this website cannot be picked up at our Soho NYC shop.


HOW DO YOU SHIP MY ORDER?

We bake all of our pastries fresh each day and will ship out your order via FedEx, via the FedEx method you select at check-out (FedEx Express, FedEx 2-Day, or FedEx Home/Ground service). 


DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?

As our pastries are all fresh-baked and quite perishable, we currently ship within the 48 contiguous U.S. states only and cannot ship them internationally. 


HOW DOES THE CALENDAR SELECTION WORK?

When you check out from your cart, you will be asked to select an estimated delivery date. We will make best efforts to have your products arrive on this date (or earlier if it an Overnight item). Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee exact arrival dates as it is based on Fedex. As your date is selected for a day in the future (at least 7 days ahead), our team will bake your items fresh the morning it is packaged to be shipped. Therefore, if you select to ship Overnight, even though your estimated delivery date is in the future, your item is made on the day of shipping and not before.

HOW DO I KNOW MY ORDER WENT THROUGH? AND HOW DO I KNOW WHEN IT WILL SHIP?

We will make our best efforts to ship the items as close to your estimated delivery date as possible. Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a notification email with the tracking information. Please keep an eye out for your package to be delivered, as the perishable pastries inside are best consumed immediately. 


HOW DO I ORDER A GIFT TO BE DELIVERED TO A FRIEND OR RELATIVE?

Place your order on this shipping website and list your friend/relative’s name as the recipient address. 


HOW DO I KNOW WHERE THE PACKAGE WILL BE DELIVERED/LEFT?

FedEx drivers will leave the package at the recipient’s door, or other secure location that the driver believes is safe to do so. Signatures are not required for delivery. 


Please keep an eye out for the package once you receive the tracking email, to ensure you’re home and the package is not left out for too long given the perishable nature of the pastries inside. 


If you ordered a gift for a friend or relative, we highly recommend you inform the recipient in advance so they can keep a lookout for the delivery and enjoy the fresh pastries as soon as possible.


MY PACKAGE WAS NOT DELIVERED. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

We recommend checking the FedEx tracking information provided in the email sent when the package shipped out, as any updates or delays will be listed there first. If FedEx says the package was delivered, then it was delivered. We are not responsible for lost packages by doormen, building receiving areas, concierge desks, or other potential misplacement of delivered packages. We cannot be responsible  for theft of damage to packages left outdoors resulting in a delivery where no one is able to receive the package.


MY PACKAGE APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN RETURNED TO YOU. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Packages may be delivered back to us if the customer provided an incorrect address at checkout. If this is the case, we cannot send a new package or issue a refund or exchange due to the customer’s error. Unfortunately, you must place a new order. 


Please note: refunds and replacements may not be given for shipping delays cause by inclement weather, package refusal, and/or an incomplete or incorrect delivery address. 


DO YOU OFFER PERSONALIZED GIFT MESSAGES OR GIFT WRAPPING?

We currently do not offer gift messages or gift wrapping at this time. 


DO YOU OFFER RETURNS?

As all of our pastries are perishable food items, all sales are final and non-refundable or exchangeable. 


HOW DO I GUARANTEE THE FOOD WILL ARRIVE IN PERFECT CONDITION?

We take great care in packaging all of our pastries safely and securely for shipping. Once the items leave our shop, however, we are not responsible for damages incurred as a result of delivery mishandling (this includes mishandling by the delivery driver, delays or damages caused by inclement weather, stolen packages, and/or package refusal).


HOW LONG DO YOUR PASTRIES STAY FRESH?

We bake our pastries fresh daily for you without any preservatives, so we recommend that you enjoy them immediately.  


HOW DO I STORE YOUR PASTRIES?

Please refer to the individual product pages on our website for storage instructions.


DO YOUR PASTRIES CONTAIN NUTS AND/OR GLUTEN?

Please refer to the individual product pages for the ingredients and product descriptions.
