Worth It! (Things to try, read, watch, hear, and discuss)

National Pastry Day is one of my favorite lesser-known holidays, for reasons I’m sure I don’t have to explain. Lol. I happen to be one of the luckiest sugar freaks in the world, because I live less than ten minutes away from the best donut shop in St. Louis (according to multiple media polls, and my personal opinion) and a fantastic bakery. Both are locally owned and operated by talented and incredibly nice people, and I’ve been a loyal customer since I moved back to St. Louis about sixteen years ago. This morning, I went to Helfer’s Pastries and spent almost ten minutes debating between dozens of wonderful options, before finally narrowing it down to a cinnamon roll or a caramel roll…

…and then buying both. I’m not going to eat them both by myself. I promise.

Do you have a favorite pastry, bakery, and/or locally owned business?

    Ahhhhh. Bakeries. In Edmonton, it is the Duchess Bake Shop, which won 2nd best French bakery in the world in a Paris competition. In Jasper in the Rocky Mountains, it is the Bear Paw Bakery who make the best pecan sticky rolls I have ever eaten. Allan

  4. Um, needless to say, I’m jealous of you living so close to a bakery shop. The photos you shared look delicious! I bet it smells like heaven in there too. I’d totally grab a coffee, buy a pastry, and read a book in there. Such a fun post!

      I absolutely adore this bakery. They also have a deli, so it’s a great lunch spot, too.
