Baked Bliss tempts passers-by with beautiful window displays of colorful cupcakes, fresh-baked cookies, and elaborate cakes many tiers high. Though it’s best known for desserts, the rustic-chic two-story bakery is also a perfect place for a lunch—a nice selection of hot and cold sandwiches—that ends with something sweet. On our last visit, we sat upstairs in the “Lunch Loft.” Tempted by the sandwiches—the BLT wrap, hot ham and cheese, Buffalo chicken—we ended up opting for a grilled cheese and the daily special, which was Supreme Nachos: decked out in beef, jalapeños, and avocado, the chips filled the plate. Naturally, we ended it all at the dessert counter, with a chocolate cupcake featuring a cloud of buttercream frosting and a strawberry–white chocolate chip cookie large enough to pass around the table and take home the rest.
