The city's ultimate Italian sweet shop, Corbo's bakes nearly two dozen different types of cookies every day. Seven-layer cookies, cookies coated with toasted pine nuts, cookies stuffed with apricot filling, cannoli and four or five types of biscotti are just a few of its delicious offerings. The bakery opens early and stays open late on Fridays and Saturdays, making this a sweet destination for coffee and cookies after a stroll through Little Italy.
Baker and proprietor John MacMillan left a corporate job to open this bakery. Now he's up to his elbows in dough and couldn't be happier. Crisp baguettes, dense loaves made with organic flours, tender sweet rolls, berry-filled muffins, and old-fashioned cookies come rolling out of John's ovens. Enjoy them at an indoor table with a cup of coffee or tea; better yet, in summer, eat your snack on the breezy porch.
Taking a page from the Big Apple playbook, this pretty little bakeshop is all about cupcakes, in dozens of flavors and garnished with a superlative buttercream frosting. Served on a cupcake-sized plate, a cup of tea on the side, they may well be the sweetest snack in town.
Part chemist, part craftsman, Adam Gidlow produces fine artisanal breads, bursting with honest wheat flavor and giving off clouds of nutty, toasty aromas. French baguettes are the real deal, with crisp but pliable crusts; rustic Italian loaves are an epiphany; and croissant-like sticky buns are a naughty dream. Mostly carryout, but two bistro tables accommodate those who can't wait.
Built largely from local, sustainable, and organic ingredients, the vegetarian menu at this coffeehouse is wholesome if not terribly thrilling. Fresh salads, house-made soups, straightforward veggie sandwiches, pizzas, and calzones fill the concise menu. Superbly brewed Phoenix coffee pairs beautifully with Root's house-baked vegan and vegetarian pastries.
Stan's son, Dave Srodek, still makes everything from scratch, using his dad's 100-year-old recipes for his Polish specialties. Holiday stollen, kuchen, and sweet breads; marshmallow-cream-filled lady locks; and more than a dozen varieties of fat, flavorful, handmade pierogi (including apple, prune, and seasonal meats) are among Dave's claims to fame. Deli sandwiches, doughnuts, and cookies are also available. Carryout only.
