Hello

In Virginia, there are only a few of the old-style bakeries left. You know what I am talking about--1950s decor, 1970s prices, terrazzo floors, tape dispensers for package sealing, and a safe but competent non-French mix of cakes, cookies, breads and confections. Does any place make cinnamon twists anymore?

Below are three classics. I am wondering if there are any others across the state worth looking at for a food story I am researching. In addition, please tell of ones that are close to interstate exits, etc.. Also of interest--any old style bakeries in Northern VA or Roanoke areas. Below are three I know of. Do the roadfood readers know of any more? If so, please post here and you can also email me at editor(AT)capefear.com.

Sally Bell's in Richmond is a well-known classic but I am looking for others. Faves are:

Mixing Bowl, Richmond

Westhampton Bakery, Richmond

NAAS Bakery, Tidewater Drive, Norfolk

thanks
