Halepuna Waikiki by Halekulani, Honolulu, Hawai’i

At Halekulani Bakery & Restaurant, find delectable treats like fresh-baked artisan bread, pastries, cakes and coffees crafted by Executive Pastry Chef Mark Freischmidt and Head Baker Tatsuhiro Kaneshiro. What are some of the standouts? Consider the Brownie Bread, Cream Pan and the Pineapple Croissant.

 

Twin Farms, Barnard, Vermont

The pastry program at Twin Farms, available to guests traveling for an overnight experience and helmed by Executive Pastry Chef Christopher Wilson, has a local focus. Think house-made jam, locally driven plated desserts, handcrafted artisanal bread and handmade garden lavender chocolates, all made in a scratch kitchen.

 

The Plaza Hotel Pioneer Park, El Paso, Texas

Chef Marisol Puentes thoughtfully crafts desserts, breads and spreads inspired by the hotel’s history and Mexican culture. Delicacies include Coconut Tres Leches; a flan topped with clear sugar, revealing colorful fruits and marigolds inside the dessert; and The Pink Cloud, a flaming treat served at the rooftop restaurant.

Rancho Bernardo Inn, San Diego, California

Executive Pastry Chef Margaret Nolan Carvallo comes from a long line of sweet tooths, and she creates each dessert as though it’s a fun, new adventure. Daily baked goods, pastries and house-made desserts complement Chef Carvallo’s annual life-sized gingerbread house built and baked in house each holiday season.

 

Mission Point, Mackinac Island, Michigan

At Boxwood Coffeeshop & Café, sip a perfectly crafted coffee paired with the made-from-scratch pastries that delights guests and locals alike. Fresh croissants and lemon bars — yum!

An array of grab-and-go options ensure guests can return home with the flavors of Mackinac Island and Mission Point.
