Few places do dessert quite like this family-owned bakeshop. Voted “Best of Westchester” time and time again, this Croton-on-Hudson favorite is always a winner. At Baked by Susan, everything is made in-house and from scratch with seasonal fruits, real butter, eggs, and King Arthur flour. The Easter menu is sure to delight with colorful desserts to make your day cheery. Fill your Easter table with a delightful cake in the shape of a lamb or a chick, mini cupcakes, Easter bread, hot cross buns, cheesecake, gluten-free flourless chocolate cake, or a vegan and gluten-free cake.

Bartlett House


Bartlett House is a showstopper when it comes to baked treats in the Hudson Valley, so it’s no surprise that its Easter takeout menu is equally delightful. Start strong with classics like hot cross buns and pistachio or ham and cheese croissants for breakfast, then pick up a country sourdough or traditional baguette for dipping and dunking throughout the day. Other delicious delights include the babka bun, Swedish cardamom bun, and pastel cruffins. When it’s time for dessert, it’s impossible to go wrong with the mini carrot cake or Easter egg shortbread cookies. Pre-order by March 23 by 2 p.m. for pick-up on your choice of Saturday, March 30 or Easter Sunday, March 31 (9 a.m. to 2 p.m.).

Crabtree’s KittleHouse


Spend your Easter enjoying time with loved ones and order a brunch to go box from Crabtree’s KittleHouse. This “buffet in a box” is sure to make everyone happy with house-smoked Scottish salmon, Caesar salad, and shrimp cocktail for appetizers. For breakfast, enjoy vegetable quiche, applewood-smoked bacon, country sausage, and berries with whipped cream. “Carved” entrees include roast Hudson Valley heritage turkey, honey-glazed Berkshire ham, and roasted organic Scottish salmon. With your box, you can select two dessert options. Orders must be placed by March 29.

Rosticceria Rossi & Sons


This Poughkeepsie favorite has traditional Italian Easter classics available for pickup Saturday, March 30. Entrees include whole wildflower honey-glazed ham, roasted veggies tray, house-made pizza rustica – a “pie” filled with specialty meats and cheeses – and, of course, Italian Easter bread topped with colored eggs. Various pastas, breads, and sweets can also be ordered to-go.

Dessert: Cardoso Cookies

Dutchess County

It wouldn’t be right to talk about the main course without a mention of dessert! To pair with your main meal, order one of the many confections offered by Cardoso Cookies. While the cookies themselves are a no-brainer, don’t sleep on the Portuguese custard tarts for individual treats. Otherwise, go big with the rainbow cookie cake or the strawberry swirl cheesecake. Needless to say, your guests will love you.
