This nearly 100-year-old bakery’s claim to fame is the invention of burnt almond cake, a local favorite that’s filled with custard and rolled in toasted nuts. While no one knows for sure if Peter’s originally came up with the recipe, there’s no disputing that their version is the best in town, and it’s our go-to for everything from special occasions to unexpected sugar cravings. Peter’s also makes a huge selection of other cakes, cookies, pastries, doughnuts, and pies, along with holiday specials like hot cross buns and German stollen bread. You can’t skip the line if you order in advance online, but at least it might stop you from bringing home one of everything.
