Previously just an online operation, you'll soon be able to order the two-year-old Mah-Ze-Dahr's baked goods at its first brick-and-mortar location. The bakery is slated to open this spring, likely by the end of this month or early April. The West Village location will serve the same menu of breads and pastries as what's online (such as the Scandinavian sweet bread nisu), as well as introduce items like brioche morning buns and new tarts. 28 Greenwich Ave., mahzedahrbakery.com (Credit: Instagram / Mah-Ze-Dahr)

Meyers Bageri

Claus Meyer's renowned Danish bakery has been popping
Claus Meyer's renowned Danish bakery has been popping up on Saturdays inside Margo Patisserie in Williamsburg for the past month, serving a limited supply of its signature breads and pastries. The menu changes week to week, but visitors can always expect to find rye bread, wheat bread, cinnamon swirls and some variety of Danish, as well as chocolate rye muffins and the frosnapper, a play on a poppy-seed Danish that is twirled. Meyers Bageri will eventually take over the entire space later this year. Saturdays, 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; 667 Driggs Ave., Williamsburg, 347-696-8400, facebook.com/meyersbageriNYC (Credit: Anders Schønnemann)
