This bakery is a neighborhood anchor, and its sweet treats have attracted the attention of celebs like Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union. Fortunately, you don't have to be on TV to get a bite of the shop's white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, chocolate ganache cupcakes or key lime pie bars. The spot also offers a rotating weekly menu of takeaway lunch and dinner entrees, like marinated skirt steak salad and turkey lasagna.
