Taking into consideration that any bakeries I review are locally/family/individually-owned establishments already, the other benchmarks I will consider in my upcoming reviews include:
1. Sight...Is there a proud presentation of the pastries?
2. Aroma...Do fresh baked goods fill the air?
3. Taste...How do these treats taste anyway? Are they good/wholesome/decadent...or stale?
4. Kid-Friendly Staff...I want to pass on my fond memories to my little ones, and make new memories along the way.
5. Bakery Bonus...What makes this bakery stand apart from the rest?
