One of the best parts of traveling the world is getting to taste all of the delicious dishes out there. Savory specialties are always good, but who doesn't love something sweet? Jet setters always ask me where to go for a sugary treat when they are jetting around the globe, so I decided to share a list of my favorite bakeries in the world (in no particular order)!

1. Sandholt in Reykjavik, Iceland
You can find this spot right on Laugavegur- Reykjavik's main shopping street. It's been around since 1920, and for good reason! Head here for some of the best chocolates, hand-crafted cakes, pastries and bread- it is considered one of the best spots in all of Europe, and should definitely not be missed during a trip to this very cool city!

2. Medialunas Calientitas in La Barra & Jose Ignacio, UruguayYou must try their half moon croissants which are brushed with sweet butter and served warm (you will think you've died and gone to heaven)! This is the perfect spot to head to for breakfast, a sugary after beach quick bite, or for a late night snack. By the way, this place is coming soon to New York City and Los Angeles!

3. TavolaCalda in Capri, ItalyThe isle of Capri is famous for its lemons! You can't talk about Capri or visit without trying something made from lemons. No joke, the island even smells like one giant lemon! TavolaCalda has delicious pastries, but for a real taste of Capri, head here for the lemon cookies...Capri in every bite!

4. Panisol Bakery in Cascais, PortugalThis bakery/cafe is definitely a hidden, secret and "in the know" spot. Only the locals know about it! It's a great place to stop for coffee and pastries. The best loved pastry in all of Portugal is the pasteis de nata- a flaky pastry with custard filling topped with powdered sugar and cinnamon...mmmm!

5. Cafe Sacher in Salzburg, AustriaThis place is famous for none other than the original Sacher-Torte! This has been the most famous cake in the world for the last 175 years! It's a chocolate cake which is thinly coated (by hand) with apricot jam, and topped with chocolate icing. The cake comes with a side of unsweetened whipped cream. And when in Austria, you must wash it down with a "Wiener Melange" (coffee with milk)! It is heaven on earth...I promise!
