Mother’s Bake Shop calls it a peach cobbler, but it’s an unorthodox one, says petefeliz, who describes it as a simple square of puff pastry topped with fresh-cut peaches, glazed, and baked. “The puff pastry is deflated, but it’s pretty good compared to the rest of what they offer.”

One other noteworthy bite at this shop in the Riverdale section of the Bronx is a Friday special of Russian coffee cake, either chocolate or cinnamon raisin. petefeliz describes it as “delectable awfulness,” before encouraging us to try a slice to see what he means.
