Frasers Bake Shop
Open since 1902, this old school bakery treasure from old Yorkville sits on 1st Ave. near 87St. I am drawn in by it's goods and knowing that I have discovered a remnant of things past. The enormus oven(coal) speaks to the rustic quality of some of the baked goods. Challah looks bandmade and slighly charred on top. Originally a bread bakery when opened they expanded to cakes and pastries. All looked lovely. I went with some classics- black and white cookie, peecan danish, cheese danish, chocolate cupcake($1.25). The danishes which were properly darkly daked and properly delicious. Must get a challah next time.
