Exploring Capital Region Bakeries – Susan’s Cooking School



The Placid Baker – Troy, NY

Welcome to our new series exploring bakeries in the Capital Region (Albany area) of New York State. Our first visit was to The Placid Baker in Troy NY. We got there right before closing, so the cases weren’t full (which is as it should be), but there were still some beautiful sights to behold! The dark chocolate sandwich cookies were wonderfully chocolatey and moist. Croissants – crispy on the outside with lots of buttery layers on the inside. The baguette was fantastic, but unfortunately I forgot to take a picture (but I did remember to eat it).

Definitely worth a visit! Stay tuned for our next stop!
