When I heard that Short Order had a sister that was a bakery named Short Cake, I knew we had to meet.
My blog buddy Nastassia set us up! She arranged a lunch there yesterday, so we could all sample their meal items, served 11-5pm (FYI the sweet and savory goods are available all day).
…we ate pretty much everything on the menu! (And let me tell you, there is nothing on it I wouldn’t recommend.)
Kicked things off with the Hand Pie of the Day – manchego, piquillo peppers, ham, and green onion
Croissant Sandwiches – egg salad, tuna, and ham + cheese
Open Faced Toasts with béchamel – ham/kale…
….and the veggie options (one comes cheese-less!)
I ate every flaky, buttery, salty, cheesy crumb…
…but just a taste of the three salads…
…had to save room for sweets!
Brunette (their take on a Blondie, with pine nuts and thyme)
Cherry Pie with Pecan Oat Crumble
Breakfast Cereal Cookies (Bran Flakes with Dried Wild Blueberries from TJ’s!)
S’mores Scone (I kid you not)
Chocolate Cinnamon Babka
Everything you see above, and below got in my belly…
…and probably more could’ve, too, until some to-go boxes appeared and brought me back to reality!
