This past Sunday was my 29th birthday. We kept it pretty low key. Saturday night we were out late at the Philharmonic. We were pretty tired on Sunday and slept in late. By noon we were ravenous, we took a drive over to our favorite new bakery: SoNo Baking Company in South Norwalk, Ct.
The café is owned by baker John Barricelli . He is also the famed co-host of Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food cooking show on PBS.
John’s top notch sweets and breads have definitely won my heart and stomach. The open air café is filled with cakes, cookies, pastries, breads, and tarts. Large windows surround the bakery and give customers a birds-eye view of the large industrial kitchen.
Greg and I feed our belly’s with 2 cups of really good coffee, pancakes ($7.50) and an egg sandwich ($5.25). Everything was amazing, fast, and cheap. While heading out the door we scored ourselves the last white mousee and apricot jam cake as my birthday cake ($30), a box of assorted cookies, and pecan rolls for breakfast the next day.
