The International Bakeries to Try Around Atlanta

From baklava to meat pies to conchas to roll cakes, these are the Atlanta bakeries to know

View as Map

Atlanta’s greatest strength is its diversity, and nowhere is that more evident than within the metro area’s restaurant community. Atlanta wouldn’t be the same without immigrants—and the more recent waves are responsible for strengthening the area’s gustatory scene. Just one example of this can be found among metro Atlanta’s vast array of international bakeries. Here are a few bakeries around ATL in which to quell those cravings for roll cakes, beef patties, and all the sweet and savory carbohydrates in between.

1. Tree Story Bakery & Cafe

Copy Link
2550 Pleasant Hill Rd #415
Duluth, GA 30096
(678) 584-0000
Visit Website

Buford Highway-adjacent Tree Story is far more than a bakery or even a restaurant – rather, it’s an emporium of Korean sweets like saccharine red bean donuts and roll cakes slathered with thick cream. Coffee, tea, wi-fi, and sandwiches are a great excuse to stick around for hours, and everything for sale is packaged for grab-and-go ease.

Brazilian Bakery’s crispy rolls cradle a dozen meat-loaded sandwiches as well as a few vegetarian options like banana and mozzarella and hearts of palm with onions, corn, pickles and potato sticks. On the pastry side of things, there’s frango (chicken pie!), empanadas, and combinations of meat, vegetables, cheese and fruit wrapped in fried dough. The dessert cases offer truffles, mousses adorned and filled with tropical fruits, and opportunities for custom cakes.

5. Leon International Foods

(770) 416-6620

6. Xela Pan Cafe

Copy Link
5268 Buford Hwy NE C
Doraville, GA 30340
(770) 452-8880
Visit Website

A Buford Highway cafeteria/panaderia (bakery), Xela Pan offers top-notch Guatemalan fare that’s so beloved a second location is about to open in Norcross. Come early for freshly baked specialty breads and pastries, including cubiletes, bizcochos, champurrada cookies, and muelas.

8. International Bakery

Copy Link
2165 Cheshire Bridge Rd NE #5
Atlanta, GA 30324
(404) 636-7580
Visit Website

Cheshire Bridge’s go-to Greek bakery comes with a slight challenge: the curmudgeonly owner, who often intimidates customers enough to delay their orders. Of course, the risk is worth the reward, which in this case includes notoriously good baklava, cannolis that show a mastery of cream, and jewel-toned Italian butter cookies.

9. Royal Sweets Atlanta

Copy Link
1685 Church St #106
Decatur, GA 30033
(404) 464-5427
Visit Website

From dosas, pan puri, and samosas to a wide variety of mithai sweets and ice cream, the cases at Royal Sweets bakery never lack in choices. The hardest part here might be deciding just what to order.

10. Alon's Bakery & Market

1394 North Highland Avenue Northeast
Atlanta, GA 30306
(404) 872-6000
Visit Website

Namesake pastry chef and owner Alon Balshan spent years baking his way around Europe, and that experience is reflected in his food. With such a huge selection, Alon’s makes an ideal spot for a saccharine breakfast of pistachio croissants, fresh (or pre-made) sandwiches for lunch, or a pit stop to grab a baguette and a wheel of brie. There’s also a location in Dunwoody.

11. Royal Caribbean Bakery

4859 Memorial Dr # A
Stone Mountain, GA 30083
(404) 299-7714
Visit Website

This Stone Mountain institution is heralded as the holy grail of patties (at two dollars!) and home of some volcanic spice levels, but don’t get too full on savory fare. The pastry counter offers treats like plantain tarts and glutenous goods shipped over from their Bronx outpost in New York.

12. La Calavera Bakery

Copy Link
747 E College Ave C
Decatur, GA 30030
(404) 998-8389
Visit Website

Details like a wall of goodie-filled trays and punchy vinyl tablecloths add a touch of comfort to Avondale Estates’ La Calavera bakery. Can’t go wrong with conchas or seasonal danishes. In the mood for something savory? Order an empanada or two with a bottle of Topo Chico. Note: The bakery is relocating to Kirkwood on Memorial Drive.
