Part of a satisfying diet and lifestyle is having a bit of a sweet treat every day — whether it’s a savory pastry with your morning coffee, a cupcake or cookie after dinner or indulging a momentous occasion with a stunning cake design.
In York, PA, you can satisfy your cravings by visiting some of the area’s best local bakeries and enjoying a one-of-a-kind baked good or a nice lunch. Here are three places to consider.
1. The Copper Crust
For a bit of foreign flare, visit York’s own The Copper Crust for European inspired pastries and baked goods. This Pennsylvania bakery was started over five years ago by a pair of Culinary Institute of America graduates who figured the residents of the York area could benefit from some delicious, home-made baked goods featuring delicate European flavors and textures.
Recently, The Copper Crust has expanded their baking operations to include bread, so stop by to pick up a bread loaf or rolls for dinner. If you’re looking for a modest breakfast or lunch spot, you can also visit their cafe for a variety of sandwiches and salads.
You can find this sweet spot on the West Side of York at 34 W. Philadelphia St.
2. Just Cupcakes
Sometimes the best desserts are the simplest — that’s the mantra of Just Cupcakes in York. Started as a part-time endeavor, the popularity of their cupcakes drove owners Chris Martin and her daughter Sara Koveleski to expand their operations to a storefront in York’s Central Market. Of their many cupcakes, chocolate peanut butter, lemon blueberry and Le Blanc and vanilla are among their most sought-after flavors. For a bit of flare, you can also request to have specialty cupcakes crafted for a special event like a wedding or birthday.
