Pastries & Desserts

Palmer’s house made pastries include pies, cookies, tarts, cannoli and more.

The angel food cake with the crispy sugar topping is NOT to be missed!


We have over 28 delicious varieties of scratch made cupcakes available for special order and offer a diverse assortment everyday in-store. We also have cupcake stands available for rent, as well as endless decoration options, cupcake wrappers and more—just ask us!

Our scratch made cookies, bars and brownies are available in any shape or size. The hand-decorated Royal Icing Sugar Cookies are a Palmer’s speciality! These colorful treats make a great ‘favor’ for birthday parties, weddings, showers and corporate events.

Dessert Bars

Customizable dessert bars are a great way to get your guests out of their seats after a long meal. We recommend choosing 8–10 different desserts to create a bountiful spread. The result is a decadent table that no one will be able to resist. We handle all of the details; linens, cake stands, signage, display pieces and flowers.

In addition to Palmer’s full line of breads and rolls we bake in house every morning, we bring in some of the finest artisan breads from other local bakeries in Connecticut and New York City.
