I sometimes imagine how many pounds of butter Alon's Bakery must go through every day, but quickly force myself to abandon the thought. To judge from the incredible breadth and quality of their breads, cakes, pastries, cookies and more, I would guess the answer is more pounds than is comfortable to envision while eating such things.

Alon's is perfect for a mid-afternoon snack to satisfy your sweet tooth, a quick sandwich for lunch, prepared foods for an easy dinner or an elaborate cake to impress friends and family at an upcoming dinner party. Everything is stellar, with particular Vega favorites being the pain au chocolat, chocolate cake of all varieties and the ever-changing selection of macarons.

Alon's has two locations, in both Morningside and Dunwoody.
