Jackson also has some wonderful bakeries, and Herrin-Gear INFINITI wants to share our recommendations for some of the best sweet treats and baked goods in the area.
La Brioche Patisserie
La Brioche Patisseries is a family-owned bakery started in 2014 by two sisters and their mother with the goal of creating French pastries with influences from all over the world. One of the sisters, Alejandra, is a skilled pastry chef who studied at The French Pastry School in Chicago, as well as under several master bakers and world-renowned pastry chefs.
Once you walk into it, the bakery sets your senses alive. The wonderful aromas combine with the visual element of all of the delightful pastries in their glass display cases. Specialties include fresh French macarons, crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle, and petits gateaux, which are tiny homemade cakes that look almost too good to eat. You can also purchase coffee to go with your croissants or baked goods, including a variety of intriguing flavors such as iced Nutella mocha.

Broad Street Baking Company & Cafe
Broad Street Baking Company & Cafe carries on the tradition of Blumenthal’s Bakery, which was a popular Trenton, New Jersey, bakery for decades. Sol Blumenthal’s grandson, Dan Blumenthal, along with business partner Jeff Good, opened BSBC in 1998 as a tribute to Sol’s legacy. Founded on the legacy of artisan bakers, who focus on hand-crafted specialties using only the most basic ingredients, this traditional bakery creates everything from scratch. The bakery produces its artisan breads with all-natural ingredients, including stone-ground flour, and leaves out additives and preservatives.
BSBC features a large variety of homemade breads such as focaccia, New York rye, and multi-grain whole wheat choices. They also create many pastries, cookies, cakes, and other desserts. In addition to their bakery, Broad Street Baking Company has a cafe where they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The deli sandwiches, pasta, and pizza are all tempting choices.
Locals consider BSBC an essential part of the community due to the great customer service and affordable prices, as well as the many delicious baked goods. Their cheesecake is highly recommended, and be sure to try the oatmeal raisin cookies too. Gluten-free bread options are available for those with dietary restrictions. Coffee drinks are available to pair with your sweets, such as iced caramel latte with almond milk.
