Hans’ Bakery

Review by: Michael Stern

Hans’ is a happy place. In its long row of display cases is a tremendous variety of pastries that range from all-American donuts and Texas donuts the size of a dinner plate to a signature cake known as the Beehive. So named because the Bavarian cream at its center is honey-sweetened, the Beehive is a large, tender cake topped with powdered sugar and slivered almonds, suitable for sharing. Sharing is especially easy at one of Hans’s large round tables with a lazy Susan in its center or at the high-topped community table in the middle of the dining room. If a whole Beehive is too much, it is possible to get a Bee Sting, which is an individually-sized version.

Highlights of a recent visit included a Raspberry Rosebud, which is a spiral Danish-type pastry veined with moist fruit, a brittle Crispie (like a round palmier), some fine old-fashioned cake donuts, a classic jelly-filled Bismarck, and a maple-glazed and bacon-topped Long John. There also is a short lunch menu of soups, salads, and sandwiches.
