I wanted to do a guest post on a recent trip with a friend to The Bittersweet Bakery in Benton Park. You've probably noticed the Polar Wave Ice and Fuel building that was rehabbed in the last few years along Gravois near Victor, right next to Hodak's. That's where the bakery is housed.
Let me start by saying I am a sucker for packaging. Put it in a cute package, I will by it. Make it fancy with a little bow, I might buy two. Bittersweet has packaging down to an art. Crumbly cookies on lacy china plates. Mini cakes are displayed on a cake stand dripping with crystals. A long butcher block counter holds everything you could imagine, and then some. Because not only does Bittersweet have fantastic sweets, they also offer a wide variety of savory pastries as well.
