Glaus French Pastry Shoppe

Only a few places on the stretch of Highland Drive north of 3300 South still make our hearts pitter patter. Even the classic Villa Theater took a hit, and succumbed to walls covered with rugs rather than moving pictures. What we wouldn’t give to watch Pixar’s latest on that big, old screen.

But just next door there is a little diamond in the rough still holding strong. A place that oozes with the appeal of yesteryear with its old-timey neon sign and paned windows. Though some slight remodeling has occurred (mostly interior), Glaus Bakery or “Frency Pastry Shoppe” refuses to modernize too much … especially when it comes to its menu. We love them for it.

Glaus has been around for nearly 70 years and the crew is still using the recipes that made it a favorite treat spot back in the day. Here, you can sample a wide selection of pastries and sweets like Danishes, cupcakes, petit fours ($2.09 apiece, and our favorite), eclairs (94 cents apiece), butter wafers, thumbprint cookies and freshly-baked bread.

Or go for a full-on cake, made with raspberry or pineapple filling. It’s the Chocolate Rum Pineapple that made them famous. Though they seem a little on the pricey side ($15.95 for a 6-inch), you’ve got to remember that Glaus is still using the ingredients your grandma used to bake with in her kitchen like real butter and fine sugar. Does a better combination exist? We think not.
