Emmaus' Hidden Gem: Baked Café and Bakery

Emmaus' Hidden Gem: Baked Café and Bakery

If you’re a lover of café food like me, then you came to the right place.  Recently, a few of the Buzz girls and I decided to try out Baked on Main Street Emmaus for brunch. None of us had ever been there before, but we all had heard good things about it, so we thought it was worth a shot.  We were not disappointed.  

When I first walked in I was slightly surprised by how small it was.  There’s not a lot of seating, but luckily when I was there it was near-empty.  I looked at the chalkboard menu, and had trouble deciding what to get because everything looked so delicious!  I ended up ordering the turkey, apple butter, smoked gouda, and apple sandwich and a hot chocolate.  The woman at the counter was very friendly and really epitomized the phrase “service with a smile.”  My hot chocolate came out right away.  I’ll admit the hot chocolate wasn’t anything special, but it satiated my thirst for a warm drink on a chilly winter day.  Next my sandwich came out.  The sandwich itself was amazing.  Every single ingredient in it tasted super fresh.  The bread they use for their sandwiches is made fresh daily, and it was heavenly.  

I paid about $10 for my meal, which I thought was a very fair price to pay for such delectable food.  As I ate, indie artists such as Mumford and Sons, Jack Johnson, and Death Cab for Cutie played softly throughout the restaurant.  I didn’t try any of their baked goods, but they looked great.  I’m definitely getting a cookie next time I go in. Overall this was a fantastic dining experience, and I would highly recommend it.
