The Sweetest Treats In Port Washington

Your olfactory senses come alive with the tantalizingly sweet aromas of freshly prepared desserts as you enter Main Street Bakery & Cafť. Sweet temptation awaits you at this Port Washington favorite that offers a variety of treats from cakes and pies to cookies and pastries, and of course their famous Main Street candy bar.


At the helm of this quaint bakery is Chef Michael Mignano, a talented, self-taught pastry chef whose sweet creations have graced the New York City dining scene including Balthazar, Aureole and Bouley restaurants as well as Hershey Entertainment & Resorts in Pennsylvania. Although only open three years and fairly new in the grand scheme of things, Main Street Bakery has garnered much critical acclaim and many rave reviews.

Intent on sampling some of the bakeries finest holiday desserts, Michael insisted we taste their Gateau St. Honore, popular Yule Log, fresh Apple Pie and his one of a kind, signature layer cake to ring in the New Year.

Michael impressed us with his classic Gateau St. Honore - a namesake cake in honor of the French patron saint of bakers and pastry chefs (below left). His presentation was exquisite with a delicate puff pastry, sublime filling and caramel finish.


Meanwhile, the Yule Log turned out to be the consummate chocolate lovers delight created with devils food chocolate cake, a chocolate mousse center and enrobed in chocolate ganache (above right). Artistically crafted to resemble a quintessential Yule log, the cake was ideally moist and offered as much of an intense chocolate flavor possible, without being too overpowering on your palate.

If you like a really fresh, homemade apple pie, this ones for you (below left)! From the advent of Fall and all through the holidays, nothing is as heartwarming as a good apple pie. Michaelís apple pie is as traditional as they come with a fine crust and an honest filling thatís not too sweet. 


When asked for something that would represent the New Year, Michael presented us with his one of a kind, signature layer cake consisting of alternating layers of vanilla cake, salted peanut caramel, peanut butter mousse, buttered popcorn with marshmallow and chocolate mousse (above right). This elegantly decadent dessert had flavors that married nicely with a salted peanut caramel finish that proved to be the candy surprise of the New Year!
