Hard-to-find culinary jewel provides area gourmands and homesick Scandinavians with a sinful taste of Denmark.. In Short In the former home of Iggy's bakery resides the aptly-named Danish Pastry House. Started by a Dane and using imported ingredients, the bakery churns out acclaimed cakes, breads and pastries. The cramped, takeout-only bakery offers a wide assortment of free samples. Compared to store-brand breads, the Pastry House's are exceptionally dense and flavorful, and the homemade marzipan satisfies even the strongest sweet tooth. Fresh coffee and homemade soups round out the offerings.
