Tonight I had a fabulous experience at a new(ish) local bakery in Astoria, Leli's. For information and the cool background on this bakery, check out this article. So, what was so great about this Leli's Bakery?!
Leli's offers a wide variety of delectable eats, including stuffed breads, soups, and tons of baked goods!
I want it all.
Adorable seasonal themed cookies. YUMMY.
Truth be told: That jelly cookie rocked my world, dare I say, better than the macaroons?!
The decor is retro chic. All the tables and chairs are mismatched set, giving it a country bakery theme.
By the end of our quick drop in, we were smitten with Leli's. As we were preparing to leave, an employee came up and said, "We usually throw this bread away, would you like to take it home?" Um. I am three days into a diet. UGH. YES?! Then he realized we were two couples, and came back with a SECOND bag of free bread! SEVEN LOAVES OF AMAZING (DAILY BAKED) BREAD!
Give me bread and I will love you forever and ever.
What's not to love about this sign? Again, decor was adorable.
Ciabatta bread and whole wheat raisin walnut bread. The smell alone is incredible.
