Banana bread-making was one of the most popular quarantine pastimes, and at one point last May, it was even the most-searched-for recipe across the US. Although the trend seems to have died down, we’re happy to report the buttery bread is still just as tasty—especially the banana bread treats from these local shops. And what better day to celebrate than today, on National Banana Bread Day?

Four words: Banana Nut Pound Cake. The best part about this baked treat from Edgar’s is that it will last a couple of days (or not if you’re anything like me). The loaves only cost around $8 and they’re available for in-store pickup, delivery or shipping.

Although the Breakup Cookie is usually our go-to, we’ve got our eye on Church Street’s Banana Nut Muffin. Made fresh each day with real bananas, this bestseller is a yummy addition to a coffee drink or tea.
