Well, Tops finally opened and I was super excited to have an old fashioned bakery in my area. Unfortunately, this is not actually a bakery but rather an offshoot of their Bronxville bakery. All the baking is done in Bronxville and brought to MK. The place is very small and their are no full cakes of any kind. What is for sale are ones - individually packaged pieces of cake, muffins, pastries, etc. They do have loose donuts and I had a jelly which was absolutely delicious. Jam filled (pardon the pun) with lots of jelly and a lovely sugar coating the outside.
I asked if they would be having cakes there and the owner told me that, right now, they are trying to get a feel for what the area wants. You can order a cake from Bronxville and they will have it for you the next day, but if you need a cake last minute that won’t work. I can’t imagine that the current concept is really what is needed in that location. It is not near the train where one might want to grab a pastry for the road.
If the cakes, etc are as good as that jelly donut, boy would I love to try them. They have 7 layer cake which is my favorite, so when they have that I will get a single slice (which will keep me from eating a whole cake on my own), but I would like the option to get a whole one if the urge strikes.
I wish them well! I hope they expand. Can you say, Rye Bread???
