http://childspastryshop.com/ in Denver makes excellent cakes and pies.

The http://www.thebageldeli.com/ has a great bakery, not to mention excellent homemade meals. I highly recommend this place if ever in this area.

There's a small bakery chain (3 stores) in Northern Kentucky called Emerson's that produces wonderful cakes, coffe cakes, pies and cookies. The crumbcake is scrumptious. The cookies are rich with butter. Mmmmmm.

Speaking of chains, however, I think that Panera turns out great sticky buns.

Yes - two great bakeries here in Healdsburg: Cousteaux since 1923 fantastic bread and delicious desserts, and Downtown Bakery; great breads but even better scones, sticky buns, tarts, cakes and pies - as well as the bonus of house made ice cream! I can walk to both from my house - a curse and a blessing.

Does Carvel count? I think they got rid of that horrible "Ice Cream Bakery" tag line they were using for several years, thank G-d.

Seriously, there are several here in the greater Bridgeport area, including Jewish, Italian and Portuguese.

My current no. 1 is Billy's Bakery on Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield, Ct. Billy's started out as a small artisinal boulangerie with a limited selection of pastries to boot. They've since expanded and offer a more complete selection of baked goods, including what on a good day are the closest thing to real bagels in this neck of the woods. It's nice to be able to get real bread for a change -- the difference in general bread quality between CT and NY (Westchester County) is scandalous.

Dearfolk,
I've only got a minute.
When I first glanced at this topic, I glossed over the obvious... that while there isn't an old-school bakery here, there are two boutique bakers (including one, Luna Bakery, that takes the leftover grains from the local Terrapin Brewery and makes an out-of-this-world spalt bread!) and a Mexican one. I haven't been to the Mexican place, nor have I to Big City Bread (I can't eat sugared bakery products, so I have to be v-e-r-y careful in what I choose, if anything).
Right now my participation here is hampered by short library hours, but I am cleaning up my house slowly but surely in lieu of chattering away on my usual myriad of useless and pointless subjects (tee hee!). Let me try to mosey by the Mexican place... it's on Prince Avenue in Normal Town... and let y'all know what's there -- if I can refind this thread!
Relurkingly, Ort. Carlton in Lovely Athens, Georgia.

Here in the metro Boston area we are fortunate with many long time from scratch bakerys. I am also seeing a new trend in specialty type bakers also. Cup cakes only, pies only, bread only and so on.
The cost of the product has sky rocketed recently though. I'm not sure how much longer the average consumer is willing to pay $25 bucks for a pie or $4 bucks each for a cup cake. The loaf of bread that last year was selling for $1.50 is now over $3 bucks. Time to feed Mildred, my starter.

My brother's best friend's family owned a bakery around us up until 5 years ago. Everything that they made was top shelf quality, but eventually he had to sell it because it was getting too hard to compete with the big supermarkets. I really loved their black and white cookies...

No - in fact, I would be eternally grateful if someone knows a good bakery in northwest NJ and would alert me!
