Those Cinnamon Buns... That Crumb Cake...


The tiny counter at All You Knead Bakery is always filled with curious, good-smelling things that come fresh from the oven in the larger space in the back of the shop. This Sunday morning at 8:30am, fresh crumb cake sat warmly next to these gooey cinnamon buns. Not included in this picture were the salty pretzel bagels.

Tempting as this all was, I was on a mission for their chocolate croissant - which I found and devoured in four bites because it is so soft and generously filled with dark chocolate. I couldn’t leave without a blueberry scone, too, just in case anyone around me got hungry a few hours later after our Sunday errands. Turns out, I’m the lucky one who got hungry.

All You Knead Bakery is in the middle section of Main Street, just before Rite Aid and past Key Food if you’re walking from the train. It’s across the street a bit from the Howland Public Library. It’s located behind a simple wooden screen door. If you see their sidewalk sign out, you know they are open.

On Sundays they are also at the Beacon Farmers Market, just down Main Street. There, you’ll find a similar range of baked goods, but you may also find chicken pot pies, which I’m learning have quite a following. They also sell retail in stores like Adams Fairacre Farms, and you may find them in one of those Taste NY stores off the Taconic.

Mission next Sunday? Chicken pot pie.
