Zazzys & Balkan BakeryWhile driving through Virginia and searching for something to satisfy my sweet tooth, my friend found the "Balkan Bakery."

Zazzys & Balkan BakeryWhat is a Balkan bakery, you ask? That was my question, too.

Zazzys & Balkan BakeryFirst of all, the Balkans are a geographic region in southeastern Europe. This region includes the countries of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Greece, and Slovenia.

Zazzys & Balkan BakeryWhen we walked in, I first saw the menu, and I was so excited to see lots of items I've never had before.
