8/3/17 -
Well Akron, it's that time again.

Akron is an ever-changing city and we have to keep tweaking our menu to reflect what our customers really want from us, and what our city needs us to be.

So, with the addition of food trucks to the downtown scene, plus the opening of some great new little lunch spots (shout out to the Chameleon Cafe, Stray Dog, and Hamad's!), we've decided that after this week we will no longer be offering lunch. While we know we can make one hell of a sandwich, it's not our true calling, and is taking time away from what we do best.  You consistently vote for us as one of the best bakeries in Akron, specifically for Wedding Cakes and Desserts, so that's what we're going to give you.

That means this will be the last week for Sandwiches and Salad, and we've already phased out the soup. Don't worry, we're keeping the quiche (I think we'd have a riot on our hands if that went away!), but that's more in line with our original business model. We'll be publishing an updated menu later today, and for the next few days you'll still be able to get that BLT or fresh Kale Salad.

After this week, we strongly encourage you to check out the brick & mortar lunch spots in downtown, especially those named above. Food trucks might be fun and flashy, but if you want somewhere to eat 6 months from now, those little places need your support year-round.

Stay tuned for this next chapter here at Sweet Mary's Bakery. Much love to you all!
