Anyone with a sweet tooth will love the Missouri Baking Company. Of course there are plenty of Italian cookies, great biscotti and cannoli. But the bakery, which opened in 1924, also makes some of the best pound cake, stollen, baklava and danishes you've ever had. Grab an assortment of cookies for the road or a pastry or two for tomorrow's breakfast.
Next stop: Volpi Foods. From Missouri Baking Company, cross Edwards and go left to the end of the block. Volpi Foods is located at 5256 Daggett Avenue.
