It's so small, in fact, that the menu also covers the escape hatch that enables the proprietor to exit the premises; the baking, you won't be surprised, is done in Queens. Yet the Turkish-leaning display is surprisingly varied: I spotted a simit, a poğaça, and even an açma (Ahtch-mah), a glazed, sesame-seeded soft bread that I haven't seen elsewhere in New York. To my taste, the plain version (shown; $1.75) was too plain in the absence of butter or jam; reportedly Ashley also prepares an açma filled with spinach and cheese.
