Blue Rose Bakery, Schenectady


Want to buy yourself a treat for the holidays? You may be missing out on some of the best baked goods in the Capital Region if you haven’t tried Blue Rose Bakery.

Blue Rose Bakery started at a restaurant, the Blue Ribbon Diner. They’ve always been known for their delicious treats and then, decided to start a separate business next door. According to their website, “It all began in the early 1980’s with the “little diner that could”, Blue Ribbon! During that time the bakery department was a one person operation, baking and serving American classics like apple pie, muffins, Danish and of course, New York style cheesecake!”

In 1981, they entered their New York Style Cheesecake in a competition in New York City and took home 5 different first prizes! Flash forward to 2018, they bought the building next door and Blue Rose Bakery was born.

They offer so many different types of desserts to choose from: macarons, cannolis, cakes, cookies, and more! But, as you can imagine, their star is the New York Style Cheesecake. So, in between wrapping presents this year, grab yourself some cheesecake – you deserve it!

NOTE: Recently they had to deep clean the Blue Ribbon Restaurant due to a worker having COVID-19 so double check before visiting the Blue Rose Bakery.
