Is there a bakery around Dallas (within LBJ) which offers traditional bakery items?

I'm looking for things like Baklava, Babka, Kouign-amann, Hamentashen, Croissants, Cannoli etc.

I'm not looking for cookies, cupcakes, tarts, cake, brownies or the like.

Aside from The Village Baking Co. does Dallas have any other good bakeries?

I'm interested to see some responses. Bakeries are one thing Dallas is lacking in IMO.

traditional european, maybe, but not contemporary, asian or panaderias. Probably has to do with our local immigrant population more than anything.

I don't think you will find any one bakery that does all those things you look for. You might find cannolis at Jimmy's, croissants at Village Bakery, German sweets at Germandeli, baklava somewhere else. Bakeries like you find in other major cities don't seem very popular here.

One of the few place I know that has a few European pastries among cupcakes is Millstone bakery in Plano , it is owned by a Belgium couple. They have fantastic croissants and brioches.
Central Market does have a very decent bakery and sometimes even has kouign amann.
You also have The Dutch deli Henk's . It has some nice selections of individual European pastries.
Tous Les Jours bakery inside the Asian HMart in Plano and Carollton. I never tried it , but I know many Europeans that go there often.
You have also Natalie in Plano.
The metroplex is extremely poor in decent European style bakeries. I cannot understand why since it has the clientele.

I disagree , there is the population for it, but most investors seem to think that cupcakes and crapy sugary treats are a shoe in to succeed. Look at The Village Backing Co is doing great business, they just opened a second location.

Yes Village Baking is doing great business, but they are not the type of bakery that offers the wide variety of baked goods that OP is looking for. They do French pastries and breads...that's it. Like I said in my post, there are bakeries where you will find the items on OP's list, but not all of them at any ONE bakery. The last place I saw a bakery like the one OP seems to be referring to, one that offers almost everything under the baked goods sun, was in NYC. That is the type of bakery I was referring to when I talked about it not being very popular here.

The OP is looking for different cultural bakery items. I would never expect to find them at the same place , even in NY, you had to look in differents place to find the good ones. I don't think that is what the OP wanted. He wanted a list of different places which Dallas is unfortunately missing.
