This is a great place to buy cakes and is in a good location. They also carry imported muesli which is hard to find. There are cookies and a lot of yummy pastries available.




401 Bleecker Street, NY







*there are quite a few locations including Chicago and Los Angeles.

They are franchising Internationally as well.


Magnolia was started in 1996 and there have been lines ever since! I have had many visits at Manhattan's Bleecker Street location and Grand central. When you walk in you feel as though you are in a old fashioned 50's bakery.


Blondee Picks:


Flourless chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting.

Caramel cake with caramel meringue buttercream and caramel drizzle.

Coconut cake and coconut lemon cream filling with buttercream and coconut flakes


Be sure if you are hopping on a train in Grand Central station in Manhattan, pick up some cupcakes to eat on the way home....if you are extra nice offer your neighbor on the train one too!



Les Baux

5090 Folsom Blvd.

Sacramento, Ca.







This is a place you will see me visit at least once a week. It is in the fabulous neighborhood of East Sacramento. It is a bakery and bistro. I adore the owners. Each cup of coffee is hand brewed; the pastry is so buttery and not too sweet.


If it is your birthday you get a complimentary breakfast, mine is next week and I will be going for the orange pancakes.


Blondee Picks:


Almost anything! Bread pudding, breads, cookies, apple strudel, almond croissants

Steak and fries, tarts, ham french sandwich\
