America's Best Bakeries
Upper Crust, Austin, TX
The cinnamon sugar–covered rolls for sale here in Austin’s Rosedale neighborhood were created almost by accident when the bakery was trying to come up with a way to use its leftover Danish dough. The result is a denser, less flaky roll baked in a cupcake tin that has sparked countless imitators. Upper Crust’s fans also come for seasonal pies like blueberry and a coconut cream pie with a layer of Callebaut chocolate.
Must-Try Item: The chocolate Italian cream cake combines sweetened coconut flakes, buttermilk, organic Texas pecans, and chocolate cream cheese icing. uppercrustbakery.com
