Cafe Mozart Bakery (6754 4th St N Saint Petersburg, FL 33702; 727-521-1333) has a long history and an excellent reputation in St. Petersburg. It’s a quality bakery. It’s difficult to discipline oneself to eat only small portions of their black bread—pictured above—which is marvelous. I can’t recommend this place and their baked goods highly enough. It’s unreservedly A+.
Here’s some typical recipes for schwarzbrot (black bread) so you can have an idea what’s in it: one at ifood.tv and one at recipesource.com. There are some unexpected ingredients: for instance, the dark chocolate, cider, and molasses, even though it’s a savory bread, not a sweet one. It must be the healthiest type bread there is.
Here’s a couple more German bread recipe links while we’re at it: these for a number of different types of German breads at germanways.com and these for German sourdough (sauerteig bread) starter at toytowngermany.com.
The Cafe Mozart isn’t just about breads, though. There’s a wide assortment of beverages, especially espresso, latte, and cappuccino, plus multiple danishes, cookies, muffins, tortes, cakes, desserts, strudels, and crumb cakes! There was a cherry cheese crumb cake beckoning to me whose wiles I’ve resisted…temporarily. Their hours are Tuesday — Saturday, 7 am til 3:30 pm, closed Sunday and Monday.
You know I couldn’t resist playing some Mozart for a Cafe Mozart post. Here’s my rendition of the second movement from the Mozart Piano Sonata No. 16 in C, K. 545, that we all learned when we were kids. Hope you enjoy it.
