A small production bakery that doubles as a coffee shop and cafe has opened in University Place. Find Sweet Wheat at the corner of 19th and Bridgeport, next door to India Mahal.
The outfit also operates a smaller espresso cafe just down the street on Bridgeport, inside the Alicia Building, a mixed-use residential and commercial building.
At the 19th and Bridgeport location, find a small bakery rack to the left of the front door with fewer than a dozen pastry choices. My first visit found walnut-topped brownies, tiny macarons (the French cookies), chocolate chip cookies and confectioner’s sugar-coated tea cakes. Counter workers said more baked items were coming soon.
Parent tip: Play areas are at both locations. Both also have sandwich menus.
