Happy Paczki Day! Also known famously as "Fat Tuesday."

Lent starts this week and even though that means Fish Fry season will be in full swing across Western New York, that also means that bakeries across Buffalo and its surrounding suburbs will be quite busy, not only today but the days leading up to Easter Sunday.

I sound like a broken record when I say Buffalo does so many foods well, but baked goods are absolutely a strong suit of Western New York. Tons of great places to get Paczki's, donuts, muffins, cupcakes, bagels, specialty bread and so much more!
