The best bakery ever!!

Mother’s Bakery has been an institution here in Riverdale for more than four decades (I’ve lived here for four decades and it was here before I migrated from Brooklyn!) I travel nationally and internationally on a regular basis and have the luxury to frequent the finest pastry shops within each venue. But I must admit that there really to my taste is no bakery or patisserie for New York City tastebuds to compare with Mother’s. Their custard eclairs and brownies are the best I’ve eaten anywhere. And their cupcakes with chocolate and vanilla cream frosting (and yes, nondairy, how they do it amazes me) are rich and delicious. Of course the chocolate babka, cinnamon babka, chocolate iced marble cake, seven layer cake, black and whites, chocolate bells, large chinese cookies are all top notch. What is truly remarkable is that Mother’s comes out with new varieties of sizable single portion desserts all the time, each more delicious than the next. How ever do you do it, Mom?

Brownie

I guess you’d call me a brownie devotee. I look for brownies (no nuts), with crusty corners and rich goey fudge insides everywhere I roam (NYC, Paris, London, Berlin etc.) and I can say without reservation that Mother’s brownies are matched only by one other venue, Maison Blanc on Holland Park Avenue in London. So, if you are in London, go to Maison Blanc. But if you are in NYC, it’s worth the trek to Riverdale to indulge in a yummy brownie from Mother’s Bake Shop.

Mother's Bake Shop

Mother's bakery offers a variety of baked goods ranging from breads to desserts. It seems to be under new management and is experiencing growing pains. Good holiday fare.

Good Challah

Went in there the other to pick up some bread, and I walked away satisfied, but not overly impressed. The interior has plenty to be desired, as it is bare boned and disorganized. The one good thing to purchase is the challah as it is-I…
