The Best Coffee Shop Pastries, Ranked

1. Coffee Cake

Simply named. What dessert could top a coffee cake? Cinnamon and brown sugar make coffee cakes delicious with any coffee. It's a coffee shop classic. We love morning cakes!

2. Pumpkin Muffin

Pumpkin muffins are coffee shop stars during pumpkin season. Customers love it simple, filled with cream cheese , or sprinkled with brown sugar crumb. 

3. Chocolate Croissant

Chocolate croissants complement any coffee drink: Chocolate croissant with vanilla latte? Yes. Choco croissant and mocha? Yes. What else? Chocolate lovers should avoid this dessert.

4. Blueberry Scone

Scones, a tea party favorite, combine well with coffee due to their buttery and sweet taste. For their fresh, delicious centers, blueberry scones stand out. 

5. Cinnamon Roll

Coffee and cinnamon? It was a match made in heaven. Cinnamon rolls are dense, gooey, and drenched in sugar. 

A sweet cheese danish is delicious on its own, but with a white chocolate mocha or caramel macchiato, it tastes weird. This dessert requires classic coffees.

7. Bear Claw

The Bear Claw, a puff pastry bear paw, is a donut-danish hybrid. It's a specialty treat, and even in coffee shops that serve it, we doubt it outsells muffins and croissants.

8. Banana Bread

This pastry has a distinct flavor characteristic that some enjoy while others shun. Yes, it's sweet and fruity, but banana does not necessarily go well with coffee.
