The Peconic Baking Company’s Riverhead shop, located at 303 Osborne Avenue near the train station, has the best sticky buns I’ve ever had. The theme of the baking company is “Fueled by Frosting,” which to me sounds like a good motto to live by. One sticky bun is enough for two people to share. Ask Patrick for extra icing or, if you’re bringing them home, ask him for some icing on the side to add later. A Sunday morning sticky bun can fuel you for several hours.
The Peconic Baking Company has a café at 2755 Peconic Lane in Peconic. Call 591-2930 or 734-7793 to place an order for the best sticky buns you’ll ever find around here.
