Top Five Bakeries In Fredericksburg

Everyone loves to splurge on cupcakes and donuts every once in a while. But when you're new to the area, or interested in trying something new, it might take a while before you find where all the secret hot spots are. Well, you're just in luck. After living in the Fredericksburg area for almost three years now, I have been on a mission to find the best bakeries in the area. These are my top five picks:

5. Agora Downtown Coffee Shop

This new coffee shop has a rustic feel to it, right when you step inside. It's small, but makes up for it with their pastries. Everything is made daily and is perfectly paired with a cappuccino. They have macaroons, biscottis, cake pops and much more. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Located on Caroline St. in downtown Fredericksburg, it is a must see.

4. Crumb & Get It Cookie Company

Located in Central Park near Cici's Pizza. They offer a variety of cupcakes and cookies, baked fresh daily. They even have a cookie pie and create your own cookie! The store is fairly new with friendly workers.

3. Eileen's Bakery and Cafe

From an old colonial church-turned cafe and bakery, you can immediately tell that Eileen's Bakery and Cafe will be quite a unique experience. Located on Caroline St., Eileen's is not only known for it's outside appeal, but also for it's unique cake menu. From its creme brulee cake to its chocolate orange-mariner cake, no item isn't worth finishing.

2. Here & Abroad Bistro and Bakery

Located in downtown Fredericksburg, Here & Abroad Bistro and Bakery is known as the town's, "hidden gem." It's tucked away behind Hyperion, with a scenic outdoor patio. With freshly baked croissants, daily, the quaint store smells like butter and happiness every time you walk inside.

1. Paul's Bakery

Paul's is one of the most well-known bakeries in the area. With over 30 different types of donuts to choose from, you will never be disappointed. Luckily, it is not far from UMW's campus - right off of Route 3. Plus, it's open at 5:30 am - in case you're in a rush for a quick bite on your way to work.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
