Every day is a good day for cookies, pies, cakes, pastries, kolaches, and other baked goods. With that in mind, here is Eater’s guide to the best bakeries in the city, offering takeout and delivery orders.
This means classic cupcakes from Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop, sturdy pastries from Easy Tiger, Mexican baked goods from panaderia La Mexicana Bakery, vegan sweets from Capital City Bakery, French delights from Julie Myrtille Bakery, baklava from Peace Bakery, and much more.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.

Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.Read More
