Angel B’s A Galleria of Cakes
407 W. Patterson Dr.
From the incredibly decadent flourless chocolate cake to a vanilla sponge cake layered with chantilly cream and glossy strawberries, Angel B’s creates beautiful cakes for any sweet tooth. Two bite tarts and cheesecakes are nice if you’re not in the market for a full size cake. Slices of apple tart are lovely, too. Dusted with cinnamon and prettily layered on tender pastry, the thin slices of granny smith apples retain their crunch and tartness. Fruit tarts are gorgeous and taste as good as they look. Prices: Petite sweets $1.50-3, pastries and cinnamon rolls $2-3, cupcakes $1.75 apiece, $18 per dozen Hours: Mon-Fri 7:30 am-5:30 pm Sat 8 am-3 pm. Closed Sun Bar: No Credit Cards: Visa, MC, AMEX, Disc. Outdoor Seating: No
Feast Bakery Cafe
American, Bakery, Breakfast, Cafés
581 E. Hillside Dr.
The stars at this café, bakery, and coffee shop are owner Erika Yochum’s handmade tamales—packets of masa and fillings, wrapped in cornhusks and steamed. Varieties range from traditional to gourmet (picture sweet potato and duck). But salads and sandwiches at lunchtime and more elaborate dinner entrees (perhaps a half roast chicken with shiitake butter, local pork chop with manchego risotto, or goat cheese arugula ravioli with lemon basil pesto) revolve around seasonal, organic ingredients that come from Yochum’s family farm in Brown County and other Indiana farms. Gorgeous homemade pies, desserts, breakfast pastries, and cookies are top notch. Prices: Entrées $5-14, tamales $5-8, cookies $2, pastries $3-7.50 Hours: Mon-Wed 7 am-9 pm Th-Fri 7 am-10 pm Sat 8 am-10 pm Sun 9 am-2 pm Bar: Beer, wine Credit Cards: Visa, MC, Disc. Outdoor Seating: Yes
