Treat to Try: Lion Cub’s Cookies

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Lion Cub’s Cookies

Lion’s Paw Cookies That’s not it. Lion’s Cub Cookies Nope. Lion Cub’s Cookies THAT’S IT! That’s the ticket. Singular lion, possessive cub, many cookies. On a personal level, the baker’s name has been challenging. Its house cookies are large and truly mounded, like big predator paws.

Treat to Try: Sadie Baby Sweets

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Sadie Baby Sweets

Of all the eating holidays, Easter is the best. There’s the ham, the hashbrown casserole . . . and most importantly, the giant chocolate eggs and bunnies. There’s not another holiday where you get to decapitate a large confectionary mammal.  To be honest, personal anthropomorphic tendencies have pretty much sucked the joy out of the chocolate bunny […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Bakes by Lo

Bakes by Lo might be best known for its pretties. Its social media feed is filled with photos of breathtakingly gorgeous cookies and treats, decorated with an artistry that mere mortals simply don’t have. And the wares aren’t  just cute, they’re creative too. As in, conversation hearts frosted with dry burns on top, or maybe a set […]

Short Order: Wario’s Beef & Pork

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Short Order: Wario’s Beef & Pork

The skies turned black when Sandman’s Cheesesteak abandoned the Arena District a year ago. An absence of walk-up cheesesteak sandwiches creates a void in the universe, and a giant hole in the stomach. That hole is emptiness. And then, the resurrection. Word broke that Wario’s Beef & Pork set up a walk-up operation in the same […]

Restaurant Review: Addella’s on Oak

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Addella’s on Oak

Addella’s on Oak is a second act of sorts from Angry Baker. The latter closed the doors on its original location back in 2019, after a decade in the business of creating epic cinnamon rolls, pastries, and sandwiches. When the Baker first debuted, it was part of a pioneering eatery initiative on Oak Street. Addella’s marks a […]
