A part of the famous Park Road Shopping Center since 1992, Suárez Bakery is a staple in Charlotte’s sweet scene, offering made-from-scratch pastries, pies, and breads straight from their store. They also produce some of the prettiest cookies we’ve ever seen—hand-detailed and beautifully shaped. With the holidays right around the corner, the bakery is bringing back their Mexican wedding cookies and other classic seasonal favorites. Try their custom cakes and seasonal cupcakes, or indulge in their fresh-baked breads, brownies, and donuts. Welcome the winter chill with a warm gingerbread cookie, then wipe the sanding sugar off your scarf after a delicious bite of their shortbread thumbprints. Just don’t forget to bring some home to the family.
