Every day is a good day for cookies, pies, cakes, pastries, kolaches, and other baked goods, right? With that in mind, here is Eater’s guide to the best bakeries in the city. This means classic cupcakes from Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop, sturdy pastries from Word of Mouth, baked goods from panaderia La Mexicana Bakery, vegan sweets from Capital City Bakery, French delights from Julie Myrtille Bakery, adorable macarons and Japanese cheesecake from OMG Squee, baklava from Peace Bakery, and much more.

As with all businesses, be sure to call ahead to make sure each bakery/restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Wear a mask, tip well, and if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the bakeries/restaurants themselves.
