With its old-school layer cakes and sprinkle-clad butter cookies, this Andersonville fixture delivers nostalgia, one treat at a time. Among the shop’s best sellers is the Princess Torte, three layers of light-as-air yellow cake separated by strata of whipped cream and vanilla custard and wrapped in sweet marzipan. Want just a taste? Many of the bakery’s cakes are available by the slice.

When I'm not at Middle Eastern Bakery, I'm here for the baked goods I grew up with living in Wisconsin during my childhood years. They DO NOT skimp on the butter here.
These bakery cookies made with butter are worth every penny (and they will cost you a pretty penny). Other baked goods here are equally delicious, but be sure to stock up, they are closed on Sundays, when the need for a morning pastry seems highest.
