New to the area we are slowly sniffing out the local treasures.
Please if anyone else out there lives in the area share your favorites here.
Today we stopped into the Holland American Bakery
The traditional Dutch offerings were surprisingly good, the only item I didn’t care for was a small almond tart, it had a weird light spongy kind of texture. I inhaled an excellent linzer tart one of the best I’ve had in years. The other cookie pictured, I forgot the name ,was actually the best cookie I’ve had in years, crumbly, brown buttery, almond goodness.
DH liked the more traditional donuts. He sampled raspberry and blueberry jelly donuts and a Boston crème that had more of a buttercream type of icing rather than the more traditional chocolate glaze.
I thought the cake part of the all the donuts very good, but the jelly filling was more of a pie type of filling.
The crème in the Boston crème was very good though, not too sweet with a nice light consistency.
There were lemon meringue pies on display that looked so good, I almost forgot I don’t like lemon
meringue pie. We picked up a package of their dinner rolls on the way out, excellent as well, I think DH may have eaten them all by 3 pm.
