[COOKIES!] Let your nose lead you to Marius Pop's subterranean shoebox of a bakery in the Pearl. The pastry man, who runs a successful wholesale bakery and cake biz (place orders at order@nuvrei.com), offers only a dozen or so treats at a time at his tiny retail counter, but each is worth its weight in gold…or butter.

Grocery list: Lemon poppy-seed scones, tart wild berry brioche, porno-moan-inducing brownie cookies ($2.50 each).
