Review :: Bakeri
We even like saying the word more knowing there is an I on the end. New to the scene, this unassuming shop, Bakeri, sits nestled on Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg. Bikes and dogs sat parked out front and the window welcomed us with a fall still-life. Inside, the artistic touches continue—each more beautiful than the last. A vintage display case, bowls, rolling pins, robust loaves of bread all perfectly placed. The garden out back has an espresso drinker today, cozy in chilly fall air with her book and mug. Each element is so perfectly done, words will ruin its sweetness and perfect charm. Instead, we encourage you to stop in for a lunch of soup and hearty sandwich, or for one of their delicious sweets—which they’ll wrap in brown wax paper with perfect twists at each end. We left with Lavender shortbread and a brownie—sweetest way to end a long work day.
