    Our office treated us to paczki from Firecakes. I thought they were pretty perfect (I am no expert), although we only got two varieties, Raspberry, and Bavarian Cream with chocolate coating on top. They were slight smaller than most paczki I've seen elsewhere, I would say about 2.5" diameter. The pastry was light and fluffy, not dry, and fillings were tasty and authentic and did not taste like it had any thickeners, and in a good proportion to the pastry size.

    As for Bridgeport Bakery, our boss has gotten us some from there in the past. I found them dry, and one did not have any filling at all although the hole where the piping bag was inserted had a dab of jelly as if to trick you into thinking there was something inside. Whether deliberate or accidental, it did not leave a good impression on me as to Bridgeport's goods. Just made me think people go there for the old school, nostalgia factor rather than an actual well-made pastry.

    As usual, Delightful Pastries for me. Perfect as always - strawberries with whipped cream and also passion fruit. I normally go for more including the wonderful boozy fillings, but I was feeling slightly cheap this year.

    The usual Shop & Save pączki for me. Solid, as always, with the amount of filling (not very much) I prefer, and the right kind of rich, challah/brioche-like dough. They must have had nearly a thousand of them on pan racks for you to help yourselves to. I just bought the usual: rosehip, plum, and plain.

    Hi,

    Last year, I hosted a luncheon at Old Warsaw for my mushroom club. They had one style of paczki available: plum with an orange peel glaze. It was very good.

    I bought some paczki at Shop and Save, too. I thought I was buying plum, though I bought plain instead. I had some raspberry, blackberry and blueberry jam at home I smeared on. Next time I will be more careful about what I pick out.

    Regards,

    I didn't get to my beloved Cumberland Bakery this year for paczki.

    Our work cafeteria had received a delivery of paczki from Poppie's Dough, whoa were they bad, not edible, tried two kinds. https://www.poppiesbakeshop.com

    I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.

    Delightful Pastries to be sure is good. However if you are in the western suburbs, Busy Bee bakery in Downers Grove makes some good ones.

    Polish Paczki Cafe
    7210 W. Foster

    These are the bakers from the late renowned Old Warsaw. I am immersed in the Chicago Polish scene out here in Dunning and Paczki Cafe are considered the gold standard by which all others are judged.
