If all candidates for office opened bakeries, perhaps our country would function a little more sweetly. Okay, probably not, but considering that smile-inducing, sugar-high-inspiring Stork’s Bakery was opened by a one-time candidate for Congress, forgive us for thinking pastries can solve our politics. In any case, head to Stork’s for cakes, cheesecakes, pies, pastries, and tarts that will make your heart skip a beat. And if you’re craving “real” food (Mama once told you that cookies aren’t a meal), there’s that too. Try a salad, sandwich, or soup to feel extra satisfied.
