  1. Connie's in Mt Kisco is unsurpassed--great quality, great ingredients, farmer's market produce, all hand made. PLUS-- all the profits go to local charities, I live in So. West, but I'm still a huge fan!

          I LOVE CONNIES! thanks for the reccomendation... i too am from southern westchester but it was SOOOO worth it... i had the peanut butter mouse pie and the apple crumb pie!!! definitely going back there soon!

    2. Salzburg Patisserie in Rye. Great place for coffee and a sweet bite of something.

      1. La Renaissance in Larchmont and Kneaded Bread in Port Chester. Tied for the best almond croissants I've ever had.

            Sadly, La Renaissance closed this winter. I lived down the street and it was my Sat am ritual to stop for a pastry and coffee. Nothing else like it in the area (Starbucks does not count).

            1. re: pobo

              I know! I was shocked. Their almond croissants were a treasure.

                La Renaissance in Scarsdale is still open (although with a new partner/manager); recent selections have been good - in fact, an improvement over a decline in quality over the last year or so. I still prefer Lulu's overall, but continue to be happy with La Renaissance's signature dacquoise.

                  Striver, I didn't realize there was another location.

                  Where are they in Scarsdale? Thanks.

                  1. re: dolores

                    They're at 9 Harwood Court. If you park by the Scarsdale railroad station and face Zachy's Liquor emporium, there's an arch to your left. Go through the arch, and bear right; Renaissance is just down the street on your right.

                    1. re: Striver

                      Thanks, Striver. I know where you mean now.

          3. Riviera in Ardsley, Artuso's in Thornwood

            1. Please add La Tulipe in Mount Kisco to your list. The chef Maarten Steenman is top notch - he worked at Fauchon in Paris.

              The store can be a bit difficult to find - near a local resturant called Coco Rumba's.

              La Tulipe's number is (914) 242-4555
