Both Lodge Bread and Copenhagen are listed on the new roster of ‘best bakeries’ on the site Thrillist, and lots of us already know why. The sourdough bread, the amazing cinnamon rolls at Lodge are worth raving about, and the ideal Danish pastry at Copenhagen shines a light on the fact that most of the ‘danish’ you’ve eaten in life simply does not hold a candle to the really Danish danish they offer. And the rye bread can hold it’s own to anything served in an NYC deli any day of the week.
From Thrillist’s take on Lodge Bread ” You can grab a hearty loaf of country, whole wheat, ancient grain, or seasonal specialty to take home, or settle in for thick slices of toast with avocado (of course), jam, nut butters, and more. You’re also going to want to check out the other baked treats like the monstrously awesome cinnamon rolls. And on Sunday get there early for pizza night starting at 5pm until they run out, where you’ll find an excellent, weekly rotating pie topped with farm-fresh ingredients.”
On Copenhagen ” If you’re a fan of Danish pastries, you absolutely have to make your way to this temple of Danish delights. Even if you haven’t been won over in the past, you quickly become a convert as you devour these buttery and flaky treats made by actual Danes. Explore away, but be sure to try a kringle-filled with marzipan and custard, the Copenhagen with chocolate and custard, and the raspberry macaroon and the traditional rye bread.”
