A Taste of Denmark
3401 Telegraph Avenue
This bakery was formerly known as the famous Neldam's Danish Bakery. It was founded by the Neldam family but, due to the recession, it closed in 2010 after more than 80 years in business. A group of investors and former employees opened a new employee-run bakery. They continue to offer the standard Neldam's pastries, as well as some new goodies.
If you've read Telegraph Avenue, a novel by Michael Chabon that was published in 2012, this is the bakery one of the main characters visited to satisfy his longings for a whipped cream cake.
As usual, I was tempted so I stopped in for a chocolate cupcake ...... yum!
