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.

Delightful Pastries catered dessert for our school's Gala. I really liked their treats and I wish them all the success in the future...

Authentic French pastries, macaroons, breads and jams. Have been coming here for years and always enjoyed the quality, homemade aspect and consistency. Dobra Belinski who owns the place is an active and engaged member of the community. In the age of corporate take over I would like to support a locally owned business that consistently supports the area and is amazing.

old world bakery which makes everything the old fashioned way with real ingredients

Excellent quality. No junky ingredients (only real butter) and not overly sweet.

I ordered specialty cookies for a bridal shower. They were light and fluffy and beautifully decorated! It was the perfect gift to our guests. I have loved everything that I have tasted from here!
