Rose and Joe's Italian Bakery
Such a great little find. All day freshness. The best part is, you can get a homemade slice of pizza and a dessert. Dinner is served.

Artopolis Bakery Patisserie

November 12, 2010
If you enjoy a delicious Greek pastry, you might find Artopolis to be your Narnia. It is tucked away in what some might consider a strip mall, small office park or just plain odd... doesn't matter!  Once you step inside you will be amazed at the selection of Greek specialties. Pinch me I am dreaming. They have large and inexpensive portions of Baklava, Katayif and Loukoumades to name just a few. Suppose you can't eat a large piece, surprise! At Artopolis, they make it easy for you not to say ...

Martha's Country Bakery

November 10, 2010
Welcome to Martha's Country Bakery, home of cupcakes. Sure they have a large variety of other desserts. It's the cupcakes that will call out your name. Manhattan take note! This is how you make a moist cupcake, topped with the right amount of frosting. I would like to note that the frosting is sweet, not sickly sweet and does not crunch like others.

Astoria Bakery II

November 8, 2010
Have you ever had a Pignoli Cookie? Some people call them Pine Nut Cookies because they are baked with pine nuts on top. The name is not as important as how they should taste. Often cold when you purchase since they are not made with flour, they are made with almond paste. It is possible they could stick together if left at room temperature. This is okay, since a room temperature Pignoli Cookie tastes as delicious or is the equivalent to a warm chocolate chip cookie.  If you think about it, a...

LaGuli

November 5, 2010
A tradition in Astoria for 73 years. LaGuli has been blessing this little neighborhood with Italian sweets. They have some of the more traditional sweets, like cannolis and Napoleons and have others that aren't as easy to find. Have you ever had a Sfogliatelle? If you can't pronounce it, just point.  It is kind of shaped like a scallop shell or think, The Birth Of Venus by Botticelli. They are filled with a sweet cream, baked and dusted with powdered sugar to enjoy and wipe off your clothes. ...

St Honore Pastisserie

November 4, 2010
You can't deny that Queens is culturally rich, especially when it comes to food. St. Honore Patisserie follows in this tradition. It is one part French, one part Italian and all parts good. They offer two types of fresh apple tarts; custard base or almond base. Perhaps you have come across tarts where the fruit is unrecognizable, but not here. Thankfully, you can taste their apples. This flaky crust tart would be a great snack or perhaps a nice addition to your morning coffee. The selection o...

Astor Bake Shop

November 2, 2010
It is well worth the 10 min walk from the train to sample sweets at the Astor Bake Shop. This is a nice addition to an area that has not been blessed with bakeries on every corner. All desserts are homemade, fresh and quite good. The Carrot Cake is wonderfully prepared with a Cream Cheese Frosting and just the right amount of frosting. Sit down, enjoy the cake and before you leave order a brownie to go. It will give you enough energy to get back to the train, but I guarantee you will finish i...
