I met my friend Kelli for lunch last week and have had Alaina's on my mind for a while. When you first walk in, you are distracted by all the cupcakes, brownies, key lime pies, and cookies. You just want to try them all and each one is amazing!!! You actually say "Oh My Gosh, this is so good," with every bite.
This adorable bake shoppe is casual, but also elegantly upscale at the same time. The little touches are just adorable and fun. Panera has nothing on Alaina's. You seat yourself and then greeted by the lovely staff all wearing cute vintage aprons! Each table has beautiful, fresh flowers which always bring a smile to my face. Once ordered they deliver a little teaser, focaccia bread and marinara sauce.
I ordered one of the specials of the day. It was a panini with turkey, brie, arugula, and strawberries. I have been craving it since we left. It was delectable. The bitter flavor of the arugula mixed with the sweetness of the strawberries..AHHmazing!!!! Each sandwich comes with homemade potato chips seasoned with salt and pepper. You can not eat just one..I dare you...
Kelli enjoyed "What the Cluck" Panini. Homemade chicken salad made with organic roasted chicken, toasted pecans, toasted walnuts, green apples and dried cranberries served on fresh multi-grain focaccia bread.
As I said in the very beginning, it is impossible to walk into Alaina's Bake Shoppe and not indulge in one of her sweets. Here are a few cupcakes we tried. The Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcake is obviously my favorite!

If you have not been to Alaina's Bake Shoppe...Run there now. I guarantee you will love it. Everything is homemade and uses only the finest ingredients. It is my new favorite place to grab lunch or just an afternoon sweet. No drinking here, but I can get tipsy on chocolate right?!?
