Borracchini’s Bakery

I have driven by Borracchini’s dozens of times but never been in, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from this Mount Baker Italian bakery. But stepping inside was like being transported straight to New York City – the place felt like a corner deli, and the selection of goodies could have come right out of Little Italy.


I was excited to see they also sold bread – plentiful and cheap. I bought a loaf of rye and then took some time picking out dessert (they let you sample everything!).



There were so many kinds of cookies (although sadly no black & whites) and the prices were extremely reasonable. I chose a chocolate cookie, snickerdoodles, and some rainbow sprinkle sugar cookies, along with a package of “croissant breadsticks” covered in sesame seeds.



The breadsticks had gone a bit stale but were fine after I heated them up in the toaster. The sugar cookies and snickerdoodles were fine but unremarkable – similar to what you’d get at the grocery store. The chocolate cookie, on the other hand, was lovely. Soft, gooey, cocoa-y, with a nice glaze on top. They made a smaller version as well, but I’m glad I got the large. Overall, I’d say use this place for feeding a crowd, but if you’re looking for that one special dessert, you might do better elsewhere.
