Memorable | One of the Best
Review by: Michael Stern
Where once stood a small neighborhood grocery is now home to a compelling lunch/brunch bistro and bakery. Formerly known as Bake Shop Wedding Cakes, it still specializes in showstopping cakes for the Happiest Day of Your Life, but it also is a welcoming place to come for a sweet snack and a cup of coffee; and it has an inviting menu of such worldly dishes as paninis, vegan tacos, Thai soups, and root vegetable hash.
Love the pastries! A tall, triple-layer slice of red velvet cake is shockingly unsweet, all its sugar quotient carried by thick layers of boiled icing (not the typical cream cheese icing). A big brownie square is dark and indulgent — more cake than goo — and a well-nigh perfect companion to a cup of Ann Arbor’s Mighty Good Coffee. For me, the pecan pie bar is too sugary, being basically the filling of a pecan pie without the savory crust to balance its intensity.
