Poetry would be entirely composed of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot: for $5, you get $10 worth of baked goods and Italian fare at The Original Magnolia Bakery.
The pastry specialists at The Original Magnolia Bakery skillfully set fruit, chocolate, and creams into strategically layered patterns to overwhelm palates with rich flavor. More than 20 pastries populate the menu, such as cannolis, prepared with fresh ricotta cheese, chocolate chips, and a choice of chocolate or vanilla filling and wrapped inside a crispy shell ($1.99), miniature cheesecake built with New York cream cheese ($5.15/lb), and a puff éclair pastry, which, like the bakery itself, is covered with chocolate and contains a whipped cream interior ($1.99). The Original Magnolia Bakery caters to the 15 human teeth that cannot detect sweetness with a deli menu of more than 20 kinds of Italian sub sandwiches ($2.99–$5.99 for a 6-inch, $5.99-$8.49 for a 12-inch).
