For those craving a taste of the Bronx, it's about an hour's drive (not counting traffic). But now, thanks to a new bakery, Arthur Avenue has arrived near the Northern Westchester/Putnam/Connecticut border.
Bronx Buns, Bread & More, at 2 Mill Plain Road in Danbury, is all about fresh bread, rolls, pastries, cookies, scones, and other baked goodies native to the Bronx, specifically what you'll find on Arthur and Burke Avenues. A delivery truck brings the goods to the bakery every morning.
The store, which opened in August, also carries a variety of infused oils and balsamic vinegars as well as other Italian specialties.
Worth noting: Proceeds from Bronx Buns benefit U.S. Pain Foundation, a Middletown-based nonprofit that helps people suffering from chronic illness and pain.
