This joint just opened up in March. I knew nothing about it until a couple of friends;who live nearby told me about it. Their main bag is baking. Cakes,cupcakes, tarts, and cookies. They expanded their repertoire to include more savory dishes. They offer a nice selection of breakfast and luncheon dishes.

I did not bring my scanner,but I was fortunate to take some decent pictures with my new camera. Well,not so new. I bought it from Ebay a couple of weeks ago. I figure with my smart phone and my camera I can take some decent pictures. I know. Too much Info. The only reason I mention this is this joint has no electronic footprint. No website. No Facebook. That is my pet peeve. There is a great venue to advertise and it is free. Why not take advantage of it? Okay. I am done.

The place is bright and clean. When you walk in you see the menu up on the wall. That is what I took pictures of. The other thing you see is a merchandising case with all sorts of sweet stuff.

These are chocolate cookies stuffed with vanilla butter cream. Five inches in diameter and an inch and one half thick. I bought 2 to go. $2.75 each. As of this writing I had not tried them. So I have no thoughts. Yet.

There you go. What more can be said about that cake. A towering 3 layer cake of chocolate and stout smothered in a glossy, shiny ,glorious ganache. 10 inches of goodness . For 5 bucks!

Lets see it again.

Well this place is not just about the sweet. They also can do a notable job with savory. Pat’s Tomato Tart was nicely done for $8. I didn’t get a taste, all I can rely on is my own chile relleno tart also $8. Both dishes were modest in size. And with both you get choice of salad or fresh fruit. By modest I mean a reasonable portion.

So. Yep we dig this new joint in Irvington. I am planning on going back to try one of the sandwiches. The Cuban or Muffuletta more than likely. Also I saw a sour cream Bundt cake sitting on top of the display case. That deserves a look-see.
