Ceci-Cela offers a variety of fruit danishes, including pear, plum, and apricot, but the one I keep returning for is their Cherry Danish ($3). I love the way the bakers crowd in the pitted cherries—sometimes with order, but more often with abandon, each one offering a cheerful pop, a pucker of fruit. Every bite sinks into that layer of lush vanilla pastry cream, and if you come early enough (which you should make a point to do!) the flaky pastry is still warm, golden with buttery layers. The danish is fairly large in size, but no worries, I guarantee you'll wolf down this pastry in no time.
