Petrasek Artisan Bakery

After checking out the farmer’s market, we were looking for a place to grab some pastries and stumbled on Petrasek Artisan Bakery. It’s a family run business (the owners are originally from Slovakia) and they make everything from scratch.

We dropped in on a Saturday (around 11:15am) and it was busy. A continuous line of people outside.

There’s a good variety of pastries, croissants and specialty breads.

They also offer drinks (coffee, tea and tea lattes).

Pretzel ($2.65)
DSC04520Soft and fluffy but still had a chewy pull to it. Solid homemade pretzel.

Feta cheese and spinach pastry ($3.75)
DSC04522Flaky texture and a good balance between the feta and spinach. The owner threw in a freebie (a second smaller piece) which was a nice touch.

Challah egg bread ($5.25)
DSC04729I love me some challah and don’t see this offered very often at bakeries. Light, good texture.

Pear kouign amann (~$4.40)
DSC04523Beautiful presentation. The pear pieces on top were delicious. I wouldn’t classify this as a kouign amann; seemed more like a galette or danish.

Would come back to PAB for more pastry goodies.
