I’m always on the lookout for great coffee shops and bakeries for a mid-afternoon snack and Birdbath: Neighborhood Green Bakery just opened a new location in the former Vesuvio space. Vesuvio was a much loved bakery in the neighborhood for 89 years, and Birdbath honors the original bakery by leaving the exterior untouched (even the signs!).
The flatbread pizzas are perfect for lunch in 2 varieties – red sauce with mozzarella or the green version with leeks, scallions and mint.
The stacks of City Bakery famous gooey chocolate chip cookies are irresistible.
The chocolate zucchini muffin is dense, moist and sprinkled with a dusting of powdered sugar. A perfect, if indulgent, afternoon snack.
