Merriam, KS

Merriam is home to many makers, but perhaps one of our most popular is the delicious dessert bread known as Povitica made by Strawberry Hill Bakery located at 7226 W. Frontage Road in Merriam. This eastern-European swirled treat is made in over a dozen flavors and while its rich texture resembles a cake, povitica is actually a pastry, and the handmade dough must be delicate, flaky, and thin enough to read a newspaper through it, while also holding together the abundance of filling that it’s designed to showcase. One thing that makes povi unique is the handmade filling--each loaf of povi has three times more filling than dough. The dough is rolled around the filling by hand, formed into an “S” shape and then baked to perfection. Povitica is shipped nationwide, and Strawberry Hill Bakery has recently added another one of grandma’s recipes to

their repertoire — Old World Coffee Cake! Enjoy a slice of povi or coffee cake with a pat of butter for breakfast, a scoop of ice cream for dessert, or straight off the cutting board for an afternoon snack. Learn more and order your favorite at
