Fresh Baked Goods

We bake new, fresh baked goods each morning, so we don’t have dozens of uniform cookies and cupcakes. Sometimes we have micro-batches — when it’s gone, it’s gone — but it’s always enjoyed while it lasts! If you are looking for that sort of assembly line place, we are not for you. If you are looking to be pleasantly surprised every day with different cakes, cookies, pies, and other goodies that run the gamut from traditional southern, modern fare, or completely original, we are your kind of place! On any given day you may find moist Earl Grey scones glazed with a hint of lavender, banana pecan pie bars, fragrant coconut layer cake, cheddar and chive quiche, individual red velvet cakes, lemon cream cheese poppy seed muffins, giant gooey cinnamon buns, or bomdiggity frosted peanut butter cookies. They smell soooo heavenly!!

Neighborhood nook to study, work, relax…

We’ve done lots of work to make our space the perfect place to study, work, and relax. Comfy, unique furniture with cozy lighting, calming music, — a quiet space with books galore, chess & checkers, endless tasty treats, coffee & tea, a gift shop featuring products by neighborhood vendors, free WiFi, and more. We hope you’ll drop in and enjoy our space!
