The Low Down


The Extras: Ordering a custom cake is convenient using the bakery's online order form. Simple cakes take about 48 hours to create, while more ornate designs require 72 hours.

Fun Fact: Owner Peter Rios has competed in many national and international pastry competitions, including a Food Network Challenge and the Grand Prix of Chocolat in Paris.

Know Before You Go: By virtue of the access to free WiFi, the bakery's next-door lounge space is more a second office for students and work-from-home types than a place to meet and mingle. If you're planning to chat, keep the volume down to avoid looks of unveiled scorn from fellow patrons.

What to Drink: Try the custom-roasted "Librarian Blend" coffee from local roaster Intelligentsia.
