J&B Bakery in Burlington City, NJ

I came across this place because they opened a branch near me, and the woman there told me that their main store in Burlington City (off Rt. 130) sold home-made pierogis. I haven't had good pierogi since the diocese closed my Catholic grammar school (Polish community, and the carnival every year featured a hugely popular Polish kitchen with fresh kluski, kielbasa, piergois, etc....) so I naturally went to find out. They do indeed sell fresh pierogi; they also appear to sell everything you'd ever want to eat. It's a smallish store, but when I went in around 9am, it was packed with the most wonderful baked goods. Maybe I've just been living in a town with an affected, overpriced bakery for too long; I gawked. Yeah, they had the artful little pastries that every Starbucks-clone offers now; the little tarts and cannolis and oversized cupcakes. But they had the real, honest bakery inventory too - trays of fresh-baked savory breads, sacks of snowflake rolls, vast racks of doughnuts, shelves filled with pies and cakes. The woman next to me bought a pepperoni bread and the checker apologized that she couldn't cut it for her because it was too hot. I bought my pierogis and a German-style cheesecake like I haven't seen in 10 years. There was a tragic accident with the pierogis in a crowded fridge, but the cheesecake was excellent.
