After a run that lasted more than a decade, the owners behind the beloved Two Little Red Hens bakery parted ways in 2006. After agreeing to sell her partner the name and handing over the Upper East Side branch, Mary Louise Clemens reached out to her store's neighborhood for suggestions and finally dubbed this, the bakery's original location, Ladybird. The tiny shop on a quiet Park Slope block retains its country-house-kitchen feel, decked out in flourishes of wood, and Clemens has added colorful painted flowers to the windows. The sweets, however, remain the same. Large glass cases flaunt homemade pies, tarts, and cakes like the Brooklyn Black Out, which boasts dark-chocolate layers, chocolate-pudding filling, and chocolate frosting. Jars overflowing with cookies contain a perfectly crumbly peanut-butter concoction, with a gooey filling of peanut butter, butter, and sugar, that only gets better when dunked in milk or strong coffee.
