An old-school bakery filled with treats and cookies, Vesecky’s features a selection of handmade Eastern European goodies. Here the Koláčky—a sweet, rectangular pastry filled with jams, poppy seeds or cheese—are a far cry from the ones you may have encountered on a cheap grocery store cookie platter. The oversized cookies are made with pastry dough reminiscent of pie crust, flakey and tender from the addition of cream cheese to the dough, and stuffed with a variety of fillings (we’re partial to the almond). Traditional Czech houska also shines, a rich and slightly sweet yeasted dough similar to challah, flecked with plump golden raisins. Try it toasted with butter for breakfast, or slice it thick and use it to make French toast on the weekend.
