Famous pastry shops around the world

A trip to any of these extravagant pastry shops is a treat.

Adriano Zumbo (Australia)

Taste 40 shades of “zumbarons,” — what pastry chef Adriano Zumbo calls his colorful macarons — including, yes, a “Vegemite on Toast” zumbaron, at Adriano Zumbo — where the décor is modeled after Adriano's philosophy on food: that it should be fun, textural, and appealing to the eye and should taste incredible. His decorative pastries like passion fruit tarts, salted caramel “zonuts,” coconut cream lamingtons, and apple maple cheesecake can’t be beat.

Bear’s Paw Bakery (Canada)

When it’s cold outside, Bear’s Paw Bakery, tucked away in the mountains, serves warming pastries, including sticky cinnamon buns, chocolate raspberry and apple cranberry muffins, and cookies and croissants. Bear's Paw is known for its Granny Smith apple pie and carrot cake.

Demel (Austria)

The wait staff at this historic pastry shop, which dates back to 1786, still serves its iconic desserts, including candied violets, cat tongues, and the Eduard-Sacher torte cake from a glass display. Tea biscuits, fruitcakes, chocolates, and other desserts can be purchased in decorative boxes or ordered to-go from Demel’s downstairs pastry shop.

Max Brenner (Israel)

Founded by Max Fichtman and Oded Brenner, Max Brenner invites you to “experience [their] chocolate love story.” Everything on the menu, from fresh fruit and pastries to waffles and cookies, is topped with layers upon layers of melted chocolate. Whether it’s the chocolate hazelnut milkshakes, banana split waffles, or the s’mores fondue, these treats are likely to make you drool.

Panella (Italy)

Traditionally a bread bakery, Panella also bakes gourmet Italian pastries — some of which aren't made anywhere else — including pistachio cream-filled pastries, sfogliatella, brioche, and mixed berry muffins.
