When you walk into the tiny shop, you are first greeted by the amazing smells wafting out of the open kitchen and then by the staff. It's impossible not to be smiling by the time Stephen or Jill greets you. Though the bakery may boast a smaller assortment of goodies than the spreads that can be found in larger bakeries, it makes up for quantity in the buttery sweetness of the Key Lime Pie crust, in the plump raisins dotting the moist Challah bread, and in the beauty of the elegant chocolate scrollwork on decorated cakes. More amazing than the Free Trade Lattes and cookies is the friendliness and warmth that emanates from the staff and the stoves alike. Stephen and Jill take the time to get to know their customers, often stopping their work to chat with you while you linger over your dessert. Any day that wears heavy on your shoulders can be lightened by a short visit to The Sweet Life for a snack or just for a smile.
