It’s the season for indulgence and special treats — I won’t tell your trainer if you don’t! Whether you need to fill out a dessert table for your holiday dinner, or just bring a treat to a party, the holiday season is the time of year when everyone needs a signature bakery to frequent. If you need suggestions, here are four great Charlotte favorites.
1617 Elizabeth Ave
Charlotte, NC 28204
THE place to order pies for yourself, your friends, or clients. The best part is they ship their famous Pecan ($25) and Chocolate Pecan Pies ($27) anywhere in the US.
Amelie’s French Bakery
This indulgent French bakery offers everything you dream of, from Chocolate Croissants to Iced Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread. There is nothing here that won’t be a hit.
La Piccola Gabbia
224 E 7th St
Charlotte, NC 28202
Impress the seasoned world traveler in your life this holiday season with a gift of authentic European treats. The recently opened storefront inside the 7th Street Market is known for their Biscotti, Chocolate Cherry Cake, and Cannelé de Bordeaux.
If you want a sure-hit, look no further than Nova’s New York style cheesecake. It comes by the slice ($2.55) or whole ($23.55 for 10-inch). This bakery offers a wide selection of other treats as well!
