Imagine the total joy I felt last night discovering “Pastry Happy Hour,” which is now a thing at Saraghina Bakery, located right around the corner from the restaurant at Halsey and Lewis. From Monday through Friday, 5pm until the bakery closes at 8pm, all remaining pastries are $1. That’s right, $1.00! That includes all cookies, cakes, croissants, treats of any kinds, just not any of the bread. (I picked up a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie and a generous slice of olive oil cake, pictured above. I ate the cookie by the time of the photo.) The man working at the bakery told me they make everything fresh each day and didn’t want anything to go to waste, hence the best idea for a happy hour anyone has ever had.
This is probably the last temptation you need for 2016, but are you really going to turn down cheap, delicious pastries?
