In addition to the best baklava in the world, the Mediterranean Bakery has a formidable international sweets aisle, shown here. See how that young lady is all agog and can’t make up her mind? Belgian chocolates, tins of British hard candies, German cookies, Turkish taffy, it just goes on and on.
I also like the old-fashioned tile floors and the arches and faux tile roof they put in over the bakery and food preparation area. Makes me forget I’m in a strip mall. Many of their customers are not American born, so you’ll hear many different languages spoken as you cruise the aisles. This is what I like about the West End.
