Screw a low-carb loaf of crap from a mass producer, sugar-free cookies from a green box (unless you have the sugarbetes, and in that case, bless), or lard-iced rectangular horrors from a major chain supermarket. The next best thing to making your own baked goods is buying freshly made goodies, and Eddie’s on Roland Avenue mixes, rises, rolls, bakes, spreads, frosts, slices, and sprinkles both deliciously simple basics and elaborate home-style treats. Among its many offerings, you’ll find packages of hot dog and hamburger buns, pumpernickel rolls, and biscuits; a display case full of apricot bars, donuts, cookies, custards, and fancy cakes; bagels, loaves of sandwich sourdough and rye, and baguettes; and pies, individual cake slices, and sweet tea loaves, all made on site.
