Local bakery delight

This local bakery has a great number of pastries and reasonably priced cakes that are worth the sometimes long wait on Holidays.

Went to get cupcakes specifically and my tiramisu cupcake was so dry and stale I couldn't even take a bite. Walked back in gave it back. I don't care for my money or to speak to a manager I'll never go back. Cupcakesare supposed to be moist! Simple.

I wasn't happy at all the eye... More

This is a branch of the bakery that Anthony Bourdain went to along with Mario Batali during the first season of "No Reservations." While it is apparently smaller than the original (in Bloomfield), it cranks out some delicious baked goods. They do have a table or two for those who wish to consume their purchases on the spot, and they... More
