Where is the best place to get strawberry shortcacke in the Baltimore area?

City Cafe in Baltimore used to have the best strawberry shortcake, but I called today (about the 10th time this year) and they finally told me they will not have it this year b/c they are searching for a new pastry chef. It is my gf's favorite, so now I have to find something else to surprise her with. Where is the best strawberry shortcake???

  1. I would suggst foregoing the strawberry shortcake this year and seeing what fruity delight Patiserrie Poupon can whip up for you.

      Patisserie Poupon has a cake called a Fraisier. Genoise, kirsch, strawberries, mousseline cream and marzipan

    2. I can't say its the best,I haven't tried them all.But the Sunset in Glen Burnie is renowned for strawberry shortcake.

      1. I would try Woodlea Bakery.

        1. Dined at Captain Harvey's in Owings Mills last night. There was a lovely looking strawberry shortcake displayed in the dessert carousel. It appeared to have been homemade. I intended to order a slice to take home, but ran into friends who were dining at the restaurant and totally forget to get my cake and eat it too. FoiGras

          1. Don't know if they got a new pastry chef or what, but I scored a piece of Strawberry Shortcake from City Cafe just yesterday, and it was as good as ever.
