[YANKEE DOUGH] Approaching its second anniversary, Tim Healea's Little T American Baker has finally developed a patina of lived-in warmth while incongruously maintaining its sleek and modern interior. Regardless of the decor, the shop continues to delight eastsiders with world-class breads (the pretzel bread is a winner and the baguettes are, in fact, worthy of a trip across town) and sumptuous pastries. Rhubarb Danish? Yes, please. Lack of evening hours puts the kibosh on just stopping in after work, but at least some items are now being carried by PastaWorks.

Grocery list: Baguettes, pastries, sandwiches, coffee.
