Welcome to the neighborhood SoNo Baking Company. We’re awfully glad you’re here! (Though my waistline may beg to differ.)
SoNo Baking Company & Café officially opened its doors on Pequot Avenue in Southport today. Behind the glass display cases a beautiful array of cookies, tarts, pastries, cakes, and croissants all neatly arranged all ready to be purchased. Trays filled with delectable treats, fresh out of oven, were stacked and cooling. Brand new coffee and espresso machines glistened along the back wall.
For weeks I’ve been driven past waiting for this moment. Without pomp or circumstance my new neighborhood bakery and café opened its doors welcoming me and everyone else who strolled on past. My quiet little hamlet is quickly becoming a foodie hub. We now have the one thing that was missing – a place to satisfy my sweet tooth and get my caffeine fix. Commuters rejoice, a great cuppa coffee now awaits your morning commute!
In the next couple of weeks, like its sister locations, Southport will offer breakfast and lunch items.
After popping in to take a few photos, I stood in front of one of the displays deliberating as to what to bring home to my kids. I opted for two croissant-like pastries filled with chocolate and a layer of vanilla cream. I’m now anxiously awaiting my boys’ arrival from school, not so much because I want to surprise them, but because it’s taking every bit of willpower I can muster to keep myself from biting into one…
