The Fire Island Rustic Bakeshop is a must visit place for anyone who appreciates fine baked goods. They offer both sweet and savory yummy treats, as well as an amazing array of really delicious breads that you won't find anyplace else in the city... all lovingly prepared by a host of chefs working just behind the counters (we enjoy viewing their talents & skills while munching on the fruits of their labors). We especially enjoy their scones (both sweet and savory), and really like their breakfast and lunch foccacias (topped with eggs/bacon/veggies, or only veggies. We have to fight the urge to try every type of pastry, tart, cake, etc. that are artfully presented (resistance is futile indeed!). They have returned to serving our favorite coffee (KBay Caffe, from Homer AK), and the owners take the time to smile and chat with you too :)) The Bakeshop is located in a residential neighborhood (akin to what you'd find in other countries), which adds further to their charm... Enjoy!
