Went to the new Sugar Sisters Bakery & Cafe today near Central and Oliver.
I’ve enjoyed watching the building transform and hope it bodes well for that area.
I’m happy to report the bakery is adorable and tasty (I recommend the mac and cheese and citrus dressing for salad). It’s a tad loud, and there are some service issues, but the place was packed.
I remarked to my dining companion that, even though the sisters are only a few weeks in, I think they need to start making expansion plans. My suggestion? Turn that space into a bakery area exclusively for serving treats. Then, perhaps across the street, build a new restaurant area to accommodate more people — and perhaps design it in such a way as to not be so loud.
This suggestion caused my fellow diner’s eyes to pop out a bit in sort of a don’t-even-think-that-missy sort of way. Why? She’s Jane Deterding of Citizens Bank of Kansas, the Sugar Sisters’ banker.
