Sigh, I know I'm showing my Yat, but I would give $100 for a dozen McKenzie's turtles and petit fours, (and I'll kick in an extra $50 for 2 shoe soles for my Mama). Seeing how it, "ain't dere no more," I'd have to vote for Gambino's.

what happened to mckenzie's??? this sounds like a carb mecca of bread bliss. hahaha! ok i've heard of gambino's. will try them next. i tried laurel bakery on laurel street sunday. cute little place and really good homemade cookies. i bought a bunch of little things like slices of cake, french cookies, croissants, muffins, their specialty bread for my step mom's birthday and it was only 27 bucks. she loved it. said everything so far has been amazing.

mckenzie has been out of buisness for about 10yrs now. they got shut down when they were found dropping cakes on the ground and picking them up and selling them it was on the news.

OMG< I always went to McKenzie's for Sunday morning pastry. BTW, when I was teaching in Orelans Parish high schools, I had a lot of students who were busboys at some of the finest restaurants. I could not believe the stories they told of combining left-over salads to make one new one, or dropping food and putting it back on the plate, etc. I gues food service is all about $$$. And this was in the 1970s.

Lol, if it was Sunday morning and you were a Yat, you or someone in your family was in that line at McKenzies. Is it me or does it seem like people are turning more towards those grocery store bakeries, (yuck)? Sigh, wish I didn't have to travel across town to get to a decent bakery.

Mazetti's bakery in Pacifica, California. Great place to watch the zombie locals at 3AM. There is a funky unoffical/offical seating order, so you better sit in the right spot. By the way the best pastries and breads in Cental California. Ripley
