One of my fondest childhood memories is going to our local bakery with my dad on a Sunday morning, picking out fun and delicious treats to bring home to enjoy throughout our lazy Sunday. You could smell the deliciousness before you even walked in the door, and then the sights of all those pastries and breads when you step inside.  I always wanted something fancy like a napoleon or cannoli, my sister was a black and white cookie girl all the way.

To this day, I still get pretty excited when I walk into a bakery. I have a major sweet tooth, so a bakery is like Heaven on earth to me. And, as a Poughkeepsie resident, I’m lucky that there are some incredible bakeries in the Poughkeepsie area. Check out 5 of my favorites.
