Welcome to Bake. This bakery opened in our neighborhood a few months ago, and I now consider myself single-handedly responsible for keeping them in business. Not hard when you can get this...

and this....
for just a few dollars.
The lady who owns the bakery recognizes me now (I think she can spot my keen-ness from a few blocks away).

They don't have a real sign outside yet, because they can't afford the taxes that Chicago charges for "air space" (thank you, Mayor Daley). But it's okay, cause I tell everyone I know about their coconut macaroons, so I think word's getting out.
It took us awhile to figure out why they put Post-It Notes under their coffee cups...but of course it must be for all those genius ideas you come up with over a cup of coffee...or for Saturday morning Target lists...

Every time I'm here, I get new ideas for decorating my apartment....I'm currently trying to find a tree branch to paint silver and hang from my living room ceiling (really.)
Happy Valentine's Day from Bake.
