Sugar Buns in Nanuet NY

There was a bakery that made these huge (appx 5" diameter) sweet rolls called "sugar rolls" or "butter rolls" I believe the bakery was on Broadway but I can't remember the name of the place or even if the name of the sweet bun was called SUGAR bun or Butter bun.

  1. Are you possibly thinking of Swirly Buns in Congers?

      Not swirly buns and definitely not in Congers. Although you have piqued my interested and I'll have to take a trip there.

      This place was in Nanuet, probably on Broadway.

        JR Black. Thank you for your suggestion. Turns out my town was totally wrong! It was Nyack, not Nanuet. (Hey, give me a break. I was having a senior moment!) And the bakery was on Broadway and it is called the Runcible Spoon. The pastry which I was referring to was the "Morning Bun." Very, VERY Yummy!
        Thanks for your help. It was my memory that was flaking out on me!

          Speaking of flaking, one of the best pastries in Nyack is the at Didier and Dumas I don't know the official name, but its a flaky, layery, buttery fan shaped pastry, filled with raspberry jam.

            Thanks Michelle. I'll put that on my list next time I travel up there (I'm a Manhattanite and I have to either 1) rely on the kindness of friends who live up there, or 2) wait until I have rent a car and have a reason to go up there!)
