All of life's important moments are marked by one of three things: eating a cake, passing a torch, or signing on the bottom line of a clown-college certificate. Embrace edible celebration with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of handmade cookies and pastries at Mary’s Cakes & Pastries in Northport.
Seasoned confectionery crafter Mary Cesar of Mary’s Cakes & Pastries satiates sweet teeth with sacchariferous goodies handmade daily using fresh ingredients. Lacquer a torrid tongue with gelato—commonly referred to as italian ice cream—to get a taste of the Mediterranean that’s much more flavorful than licking an atlas ($2.75/ cup, $4.50/to-go cartons). Explore a spectrum of cookies including shortbread ($1.65), snickerdoodle ($0.95), and chocolate chunk ($1.25) or revel in the simplicity of a cinnamon roll ($2.25) paired with an esophagus-warming cup of coffee ($1.10). Fans of coiled French comestibles can try plain croissants ($1.95), croissants stuffed with ham and swiss ($3.95), or pain au chocolat—a french pastry swaddling a dark-chocolate baton ($2.25). Meanwhile, frosting-shellacked cupcakes are the perfect size to hide beneath top hats and satisfy sugar cravings at the opera ($2.25).
- Hidden just off of Main Avenue, stepping into Mary's is like stepping back in time, to a place where everything is made from scratch with the freshest seasonal ingredients, where food is an art, and where Mary is an actual person, lovingly kneading dough and piping icing, not just some name on a billboard or package. – Ashley Ferry, VisitSouth
Mary's Cakes and Pastries
Though they spend much of their time mixing ingredients and dialing in oven temperatures, the team at Mary's Cakes and Pastries has also perfected the art of building cars, football stadiums, and mandolins. The designs are all custom cakes decorated with layers of fondant and buttercream icing to bring customers’ ideas to life. In addition to their edible sculptures, the kitchen crew bakes fresh cookies and pastries each day and fires up lunch specialties such as stuffed croissants and turkey gumbo.
