This Hidden Hudson Valley Breakfast Gem Is One Of The Best Around
Anytime you can find a place that has great food and also food-to-go, you have to share it. I am always looking for unique places that have homemade food. Places that I can enjoy food, eat-in, and support small business owners.
If you find a gem like that let me know! Today, I am going to share with you a unique place that I found in Brewster NY. The place is called General Bakeshop and it is located at 871 Route 22, Brewster, Ny 10509.
Why is this Brewster NY bakeshop a hidden gem?
When I walked into the Bakeshop, I wasn't sure what I was going to expect. Then I saw the sight of the multiple bakery cases, and the list of prepared items, I started drooling. See that photo above? That is just a little bit of what is available in their bakery cases. I challenge you not to get even a little hungry.
What did I order? What is their signature 'Brewster Bun?'
According to the persons working at the counter, all of the items were made from scratch. When ordering a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese sandwich it comes standard on one of their house made Brewster Buns. What is a Brewster Bun? It is the fluffiest, soft, yeast dough roll. If you are used to a hard roll for your BEC, you are going to not know what to make from this. Try it. If you are nervous about it, ask to have your sandwich on a bagel or one of their croissants.
What else should you try at General Bakeshop in Brewster NY?
While there are other types of breakfast dishes to order, like French toast, you can also get bagels, slices of pie, soups, etc. If you are in the mood for something you might not have tried before, try the Kouign-amann. What is that? It is actually pictured above on the right. It is made from something similar to a croissant dough that has been lightly brushed with cinnamon sugar. Flaky, with just a touch of cinnamon sweetness. Hard to pronounce, easy to eat.
