The Hill has been missing a local bakery to satisfy the sweet tooth of Syracuse students for years. Fortunately, we’re no longer deprived of homemade sweets. Located between Faegan’s and Dunkin Donuts on South Crouse Ave., Hot Crouse Buns is the new kid on the block in the Marshall Street area.
The bakery serves up treats by other local bakeries like Geddes Bakery, Harrison Bakery, Lyncourt Bakery, and Picasso’s Pastries and Cafe. Tucked away from the bustle of campus, it’s the perfect spot to grab a pastry or baked good on your morning walk to class or a much-needed afternoon snack for that 3 o’clock boost. Need a caffeine fix with your sweet fix? Buy a coffee to go.
In addition to selling baked goods, Hot Crouse Buns sells made-to-order cupcakes and cakes for any occasion. If your birthday falls during the semester, it’s rare to get a customized cake and blow out candles like you used to when you were (tear) living at home. None of us would trade being in college for a birthday celebration thrown by our parents, but the little comforts of home are always welcome.
