The Baker’s Jar, 625 South 16th Street (267-519-0609 or bakersjarphilly.com).
Polishing off a box of cookies in one sitting is all too easy. The Baker’s Jar has a serving size you can handle. True to its name, the new bakery nestles all its confections inside glass jars. The container makes any sweet treat as portable as a cupcake but ten times more satisfying. If the tres leches calls your name before you’re outside, plop down on a stool by the window and tempt passersby as you shovel it in. Avery Goldman counts on the old-fashioned magic of butter and sugar and takes rainbow sprinkles over chia seeds any day. She masters the ratio of fillings and toppings in everything from banana cake to lemon pie. When a larger appetite strikes, order anything on the menu in full size. That’s huge.
