5 Of The Most Popular Baked Goods for a Coffee Shop

Many times, the thing that sets a coffee shop apart is the baked goods case. While the coffee flavor and quality, service, and ambiance of the cafe are determining factors for many coffee shop enthusiasts, they want to know that they will be able to get great edible treats too!

At Triangle Pastry Co, our clients have a few specific baked goods that they love offering. These are the baked goods that their customers come in asking for and that they email us for most often when they need a restock.

Viennoiserie pastries like croissants and danishes are always a popular option in a coffee shop bake case. The cruffin is the latest pastry hybrid taking the foodie world by storm. It is made by baking croissant dough in a muffin or popover mold. Oftentimes it is rolled in spiced sugar and stuffed with pastry cream much like a doughnut.

5 of the most popular baked goods for a coffee shop in the Triangle are:


1. Decadent Cookies 

Coffee shop patrons love multi chocolate chunk, iced spiced sugar and other spectacular flavors. Cookies are great to dunk in coffee! We even offer pastry style cookies such as Rugelach and Palmiers.


2. Scones 

Scones make a very traditional pair with coffee and tea. We make ours a little differently -by topping with raw sugar instead of icing. This lends a modern depth of flavor that complements both the beverages and the pastries. Just our contemporary touch.


3. Tarts 

Tarts are very similar to a pie, but can be a little lighter. Lighter treats typically create favorable pairs with coffee and coffeeshop beverages. Our chocolate tart is rich, but makes an amazing match for a dark coffee or an espresso drink.


4. Croissants 

Not everyone wants something sweet to pair with their coffee and tea. Croissants offer a great contrasting option to sweet treats. Although chocolate and almond croissants are very popular sweet flavors, plain croissants are neutral and light enough not to overpower the beverages. Savory croissants, like our spinach and cream cheese flavor, are a great choice for patrons looking for a light meal.


5. Bundt Cake 

Bundt cakes have become a very popular dessert in many different flavors. They
can be sold by the slice or as personal size mini bundt cakes.
