I discovered this bakery years ago and I consider its location at Pilgrims Square a delightful but small shopping center to be rediscovered again. When I visit the art gallery next door I know where to go for a treat. You should not drive westward on West Market past Fairlawn Country Club without stopping at this place There is a small number of seats and tables inside where you will find large amounts of good food for sampling. The owner is there regularly and will talk with you about several topics and most importantly they will make most of what you desire. Inquire about the fruit pies and ask for nut bread and ethnic rolls that might make you wish you were someplace else but Akron. I found the pumpernickle bread to be tasty To fully enjoy the value of this place you should bring two friends and discuss some part of the world that makes you order and consume the bread products with culinary connections over seas in the first place. It is far from being there but the place has some atmostphere. I am glad that it has not become night-time TGIF place. A large seating area might make it inviting to more people at one time but it has more than charm to keep me going back as often as I drive my car to that part of town. They do produce some thick european breads and tasty rolls that can overwhelm you with their taste. The have started to try to promote sandwiches which has its merits. But that makes it less than a bakery. I am not sure about the ethnic origins of this bakery. If you are into walking then I suggest that you select this place as your destintation. I believe that this bakery used to pride itself for being more than just a regular american bread box, Good value with good service and a reasonable set of prices that are affordable for the most part. Atmosphere does set this place off in its own category. There is a regular clientele as people know about this place from many parts of Summit County. Do not miss going there twice a day.
