Summer Kitchen Bake Shop - Elmwood

I stopped into Summer Kitchen Bake Shop today. I hadn't seen it before, but it has been open over a month, on College at Ashby (right between Ici and La Mediteranae). It is a very cute shop, with a few tables to sit at. Cold salads for takeaway, plus take away hot food (pizzas and 1-2 entrees as a day) or you can eat there. They had some lovely looking sweets -- lemon meringue, gingerbread lemon and chocolate cream cheese cupcakes; serveral kinds of cookies; several types of quickbread slices like gingerbread, banana nut and lemon poppyseed.

I had other lunch plans, so I didn't stay to eat. I bought a gingerbread with lemon frosting cupcake that was delicious. The gingerbread was clearly made with really ginger and very moist. The frosting was perfectly "not too sweet" and very buttery. It was lemony, but I could've used more lemon. Cutely decorated with dragees and a marzipan gingerbread man.

I hope to go back and try more.
