The pastries from Pavel's are the MOST Delicious we have Ever had! They are Amazingly Good! You must arrive early (they are open at 7:00a.m. Tues-Sun) to have the best selection of exquisite delicacies. My favorite so far is... All of them!!

We love Panel's and know to arrive early. We purchased a Farmers Loaf, almond bear claw, and assorted rolls. The line was out the door and up the sidewalk. But being a "Well oiled machine" the line moved quickly. This is a family run business...More
