Cupcakes at Delightful Pastries.

Mother-daughter team Dobra Bielinski and Stasia Hawyrszczuk opened this Jefferson Park bakery in 1998 and have established it as the preferred stop for those seeking Polish pastries (or other European sweets for that matter). Polish specialties like angel’s wings cookies and kolachki are always popular, but come Paczki Day (Fat Tuesday in the Big Easy), this place sells thousands of the lard-fried, cream-filled doughnuts, including one specific to the holiday filled with boozy custard. Coffee cake, muffins and breads have universal appeal year-round.

My favorite bakery in the city for macaroons and fun cookies. Delightful also serves an amazing brunch with a few of both sweet and savory options. I've had the breakfast sandwich which was super tasty and salty. I've also came for lunch and had the Thanksgiving inspired sandwich. The food is excellent and the prices aren't bad either. Be sure to stop in for a treat and coffee if you're in the neighborhood!
