Adorable Athan's Bakery


Picture this: The front of the bakery has a large selection of brightly-colored and sweet-smelling baked goods waiting to be plucked up; and the back contains a quaint cafe and sitting area where locals come to read, work, or laugh together. There's nothing better than a great neighborhood bakery, and Athan's is the perfect example! I just have to share their ridiculously delicious baked goods with you all, because I know you'll appreciate them!

I almost bought the giant tart cake you see above, partly because I love fruit tart and partly because it was so pretty. But luckily they had adorable mini fruit tarts so I noshed on one of those instead (see below).




One day, after some urban hiking (what we call walking around the city), we stopped in at Athan's for some green tea and delish bites. I got a couple baklavas - my absolute favorite dessert! It's a flaky pastry filled with honey and nuts, what's better than that? I also picked up some chocolate chip cookies and a chocolate praline cookie. 


It's great to just sit and relax with your sweets in the back of the bakery. No matter what you get here, from a fruit tart to a baklava, it'll never disappoint. You can really tell that every single piece is made with love, and to me that's a sign of a great bakery!

  8. OMG I would have flipped a table and bought everything in there, especially that giant fruit tart! But I have four or five other people to share it with, so it wouldn't have been that big of a deal for me.


    My favorite bakery item is anything that contains chocolate, but I usually go for a slice of chocolate cake or a brownie.
