Poetry would be composed entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Say what meter and rhythm cannot with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of cakes, pastries, and more at M&W Dutch American Bakery in Galt.
Named Best Bakery 2010 by San Joaquin Magazine, M&W Dutch American Bakery uses tried-and-true European recipes to bake up a mixed bag of delectable cakes, cookies, and other treats. Take home a dozen of M&W’s wholesome cookies ($4–$5) in flavors such as Florentine, chocolate chip, and soft, chewy oatmeal. Loaves ($2–$3.50) of sourdough, wheat, french, and challah bread spring from the oven perfectly roasted and ready to be consumed by a hungry breadivarian. The bakery also offers danishes ($1.25), croissants ($1.50), and a plethora of other meticulously crafted pastries. M&W even whips up a variety of lunchtime bites, with specialties such as jagtwurst ($3.50) and sauerkraut-covered pastrami ($3.50) to feed the German national polka orchestra when it plays impromptu shows in your backyard.
Those with wedding bells or special occasions looming ominously on the horizon can use this deal toward one of M&W’s custom cakes, which come in a bouquet of scrumptious flavors such as espresso, Dutch-chocolate whipped cream, and banana nut. Otherwise, pastry purveyors can satisfy their sweet teeth and macaroon-loving femurs all in one trip by heading to M&W’s store and marveling at the hundreds of colorful treats singing creamy siren songs from behind the display case.
