The 9 Best Bakeries Around the World
From delectable pastries to out-of-this-world bread, these bakeries know how to delight with dough.
Finding a good baguette—a baguette that a Parisien chef would approve of, that is—is hard to find. Sniffing out the best ciabatta to accompany a caprese salad or the perfect little romantic treat to share at the end of a date can be equally difficult. In many cities, like Paris and Vienna, bakeries are on nearly every corner, but you still need to know where to look to find the very best bakeries in both cities. And there are plenty more lofty baked good expeditions for world travelers—like finding a croissant with perfect layers outside Paris, or vegan chocolate chip cookies in small-town America.
We believe there is never a need to buy a sub-par cupcake, or a baguette that leaves you lamenting over its crust. That’s why we’ve tracked down the best bakeries in the world, for you to seek out both here in the U.S. and on future international travels. Without further a-dough, here are our choices when it comes to the crustiest baguette in San Francisco, the most enticing cinnamon buns in Scandinavia, and more.
