Editorial Review of Pasieka Bakery

Walk by this Polish bakery and you can hardly help but stop inside. The storefront windows display cakes and pastries too tempting to ignore. Once inside, it can be hard to choose from the selection of tortes, cookies and breads lined up inside the display cases. Cookies are sold by the pound, and an entire torte, enough to feed a small village, can be purchased for less than $5. Individual pastries can be bought for around $1.

Pasieka is a small place without much decoration (if the food doesn't count). Tile floors and bare walls produce a clean, if somewhat cold, appearance, but the baked goods speak for themselves. Moist orangey tortes, sugary cookies and gooey sweetbreads compete for attention behind glass cases and along the wall behind the counter. Communicating your choice to the girls behind the counter can sometimes be difficult, with Polish being their native language. Small signs give names to most of the offerings, but descriptions are scarce, so unless you speak Polish, you'll have to go by looks and looks alone. All you have to do is point at what you want and they'll wrap it up for you with a smile at no extra charge. Just try not to eat it before you get home.

Average cost: <$10
