Pavel’s Backerei

219 Forest Ave., Pacific Grove (831) 643-2636

Pavel’s has a formidable lineup of baked goods, including apple fritters the size of a human head, but it’s one of the smaller items for sale that is legendary. In the cookie section, near the wild cherry thumbprints and peanut butter crunches is the chocolate chunk cookie. Not content to showcase paltry chocolate chips, this dynamite desert has such giant chunks of chocolate that you are almost guaranteed some gooey chocolatey goodness in every bite.
