The ultimate bucket list.

Posted on

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to name the best bakery in the world. Here are their delicious responses.

1. B. Patisserie — San Francisco

Via Facebook: b.patisserie

Location: 2821 California St. at Divisadero St.

Both refined and modern, the bakery serves up delicious treats with a French — and American — flair. Pastries include "individual cakes and entremets, tarts, verrines, macarons, and a range of viennoiseries."

2. Baked & Wired — Washington, D.C.

Location: 1052 Thomas Jefferson St. NW

A Georgetown favorite, the bakery serves up "small-batched baked goods prepared from family recipes." Here, you can wake and bake, and no one will bat an eye.

4. Duchess Bake Shop — Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Location: 10718 124th St. NW

Arguably the best bakery in Canada, the Duchess has a philosophy of using "no mixes, no preservatives, and no shortcuts." An equal opportunity baker, they have both a duke and a duchess cake.

6. The Little Tart Bakeshop — Atlanta

Location: 437 Memorial Dr. SE & 99 Krog St.

Sarah, the owner, has been baking ever since she was 10. Now, at her French-inspired bakery, you can find "crème fraîche quiche, local fruit galettes, croissants, scones, and tarts," many baked with locally sourced ingredients.

Location: Rua Belém 84-92, 1300-085

"They have the best pastel de nata in the world. The crunchy outside layer holds the creamy egg custard, on top of which sugar and cinnamon are sprinkled. It's served warm and melts in your mouth. Plus, the place is almost 200 years old!"

11. Bakery Lorraine — San Antonio

Location: 306 Pearl Parkway #110

Even though it's been open only a few years, the bakery has already established itself as a San Antonio favorite. And judging just from their gorgeous creations, it's no wonder why.

16. Porto's Bakery — Los Angeles

"There's a reason the lines are always out the door and wrapping around the building. Their cakes are great, but my favorite treats are the mango mousse, fruit tarts, and their famous cheese rolls."
