Abu’s Homestyle Bakery

Find yourself in a sweets-lover’s heaven when you enter this small bakery. Owner Idris Conry has been providing Brooklyn with dozens of assorted homemade pastries, cakes and pies for the last six years, and even ships them nationwide. The signature item, bean pie, never stops pleasing, says Conry’s son, manager Idris Braithwaite. For the bean pie, navy beans are used as part of the custard filling, which is topped with a thin layer of cinnamon and butter. An African-American delicacy created as an alternative to apple pie or sweet potato pie, Braithwaite calls the bakery’s bean pie “the jazz of dessert culture.” The bakery also gives “a different spin” to carrot cake and German chocolate cake, and makes wedding cakes and personalized photo cakes. For larger orders, delivery is available for a $10 fee. Open Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 10 pm; Saturdays, from 10 am to 10 pm; and Sundays, from 10 am to 5 pm.
