Sweet Simone’s at
The Sweet Spot
“Bakeries make people happy,” explains baker-owner Lisa
Curtis — and hers sure does. For those
who must have chocolate, she delivers
the goods with her deep, dark Callebaut
cupcake with chocolate whipped cream
frosting. Others, like The New York
Times’ Mark Bittman, swoon over the
family recipe for moist coconut cake
with generous swirls of cream cheese
frosting, resembling a powder day on
nearby ski slopes. Even the gluten-free can indulge in topnotch Morning
Glory muffins and chocolate cupcakes
with salted caramel buttercream icing.
On the fancier side are elegant lemon-meringue or plum-almond tartlets,
indulgent coffee and Amaretto truffles,
and whole cakes baked and decorated
to order. More everyday treats include a
cinnamon crumb cake that is equal parts
streusel and tender cake; lemon-glazed
mixed berry, honey-fig or bacon-scallion
scones; crumbly peanut butter sandwich
cookies and chewy ginger molasses
cookies; and cheddar-rich popovers.
Weekends bring hand-rolled bagels,
blending New York–style dough with
a Montreal shape. A family endeavor,
Curtis’ mom is often in the kitchen; and
at one end of the counter, Scout’s Honor
ice cream, run by Curtis’ sister’s family,
offers its own small-batch pints, scoops
and other frozen delights. The two
businesses share an espresso machine,
and together, they create lots of happy.
