A Little Extra at Crown Bakery

We had lunch, yesterday at Crown Bakery in Worcester, Mass. It has been mentioned on RF, before, but a search didn't come up with a thread of their own.
 
We bought a salad and two sandwiches to eat there, and some stuff to go. The "eat here" food came with 3 mini pastries,,,,,,,,,a choc filled cream puff, half of an apricot danish, and a 2x3 lemon square. There is no bonus with the "to go" food. A nice lady who sat down with us (if 2 people are at one of the 4 person tables, singles are encouraged to join them) said that you can't choose or ask, but that the "extras" are always nice.

    Crown was in the paper today, as 2 men with a combined 99 years at the bakery retired. The store was sold to another long time employee about a year ago, and from my viewpoint as an occasional customer, there has been little if any change. Another, newer, local bakery, Gerado's, has been giving Crown a run for position on various "best of" lists, but IMO, they are both better for the competition.
     
    Crown was started, years ago, when the local manager for Astra, a Swedish drug company, advertised in Sweden for a pastry chief to start the place. Both retirees are Swedish Americans, trained in Sweden.  You can read all about it at the Worcester Telegram and Gazette on line edition. I think that you out of towners can read a few stories per month free.
