Does anyone recall Bauer's & Shelley's bakeries?
« on: June 11, 2015, 07:51:07 PM »
I grew up in JH and remember two Old European-style bakeries, Bauer's and Shelley's, both in the 80s. I believe one of them was near 82nd St. and Roosevelt, but I don't recall the location of the other. Does anyone out there remember them? The quality of the backed goods was outstanding.

Also I noticed a thread from several years ago regarding stores that used to exist on 74th Street. When I was in high school (1964-68), there was a French restaurant near Roosevelt on 74th, on the north side of the block.

I remember both fondly.

Shelley's was a wonderful bakery It was on Roosevelt between 82nd and 83rd. It was always backed and made excellent things. I remember their rye bread with seeds and amazing cookies. Also remember the little alcove where I sat and watched.

Bauer's was on my corner (85th and 37th). It was wonderful. I remember their fantastic cheese cake, flat brownie cookies and my very favorite the orange flavored cookies. I remember walking to school each morning and passing Bauer's while they were baking. The aroma was amazing - I could almost smell it now.
