A Sticky Bun Worth a Drive

You might want to put this stop on your to-dos if you are heading to Nantucket for a weekend but it’s worth the drive to Mystic, CT, all on its own. A family owned, French-focused bakery, Sift Bake Shop specializes in artisan breads, pastries, desserts, macarons, cakes and savory items. Every item is made fresh daily; customers can see the team of bakers hard at work in the kitchen through a glass window.

If you are stopping for a coffee break, try the pecan sticky bun—a laminated brioche dough pastry so flaky and buttery it will melt in your mouth. It is rolled with brown sugar and toasted pecans before baking, proofed and baked to golden brown, then submerged in salted pecan toffee sauce. “It’s a customer favorite for sure,” says owner Ebbie Young.
