If you still haven’t been to , head over. It’s a charming little bakery and café featuring baked goods, coffee and tea, and even a light lunch. With a handful of tables to sit at (including a bar-styled one with a view of Main Street) and chalkboard menus and messages, it’s a cute place to relax and treat yourself to something sweet.
Along the counter, you’ll find “cookie monsters” (like Snickerdoodle and Peanut Butter) stacked in glass jars, muffins (like Lemon Poppyseed) wrapped in burgundy papers, and scones (like Choco Cherry). Baked also serves small meals like soups, savory tarts, and oatmeal.
Plus, if you live your life gluten-free, Baked is one of the few bakeries that offer gluten-free desserts. There’s a nice variety of cookies (like Chocolate Chip), bread (like Pumpkin Chai), and packaged goods (like shortbread and peanut butter cups) to choose from. You can even order gluten-free cakes.
And with Thanksgiving right around the corner, Baked lets you order baked goods, cakes, and whole pies (like Caramel Apple or Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake) to save yourself some time on the dessert front.
My meal: A Pumpkin Cranberry Oat muffin and a vegan Molasses Ginger cookie monster. Both were delicious (and perfect for fall). I'm awarding a 5/5.
