"Life tastes good" is the motto at this friendly bakery and cafe, located within the historic Motor Row district on the outskirts of Chinatown. The sweets shop, headed up by a husband-and-wife team, offers a comfortable environment for camping out with your laptop at one of the highboy tables. A mega-sized display case is filled with cookies, cakes, muffins, cupcakes and more dessert goodies -- just step up the counter and place your order for red velvet anything – cupcakes, cakes, even cookies fly off the shelves. Neighborhood folks stop by for the turkey, egg and cheese breakfast croissant for breakfast, or the chicken salad croissant for lunch. To wash it all down, grab Metropolis coffee, hot tea, milk, juice or a fruit smoothie.
