  1. I totally agree that mikes pastry would never be what is is today if it weren’t for Dora, Dianne and Phyllis… I remember going there as a kid and mikes First wife an His kids were always working!!! And what did they get for everything they did….. nothing!!

  2. I remember going to the original Mikes Pastry and my mother letting me dunk my biscotti in her coffee in the 50’s. It was just a small bakery back then. Great memories.
