      Lulu's on Union Turnpike near 186th Street is good. It's not like the great days of old but in a pinch, they do a nice job.

        Rudy's in Ridgewood all the way! Linzer tarts and danishes are amazing, among much else.

          came to the realization yesterday that Malverne Bakery in Malverne, LI is the best bakery in the entire nyc metro area--see my post on li board..............lines out the door for a reason.

            Bayside has a couple of great bakeries. Cupcake in heels and Teaspoon bake shop.

                DuBois Pastry in Elmhurst for the strawberry shortcake or black forest. If you're watching calories, maybe Fay-Da or Taipan for their fruit topped sponge cake. If you're not watching calories, La Cheesecake in College Point.

                  La Guli Pastry Shop in Astoria, Queens. It is a family operated place since the 1930's. I called in an order by phone for a Hazelnut chocolate mousse cake at 7pm. They baked it to order for me and I picked it up at 8am next morning. Fresh, and delicious.

                      Don't mean to hijack this thread, but which cakes do you guys recommend at these bakeries? I'm looking for a birthday cake that isn't too sweet. I'd like to avoid Chocolate as the main flavor as well. The birthday person is a bit picky...
                      Do any of these bakeries deliver within Queens?

                        Try Martha's Country Bakery...good selection of non chocolate cakes....Buttercookery has a great selection of fresh fruit pies and tarts...I am not sure either of them deliver...
