If you’ve never been to Alaina’s Bake Shoppe and Café on Northlake Boulevard, you are in for one sweet surprise! PB Girls Dine stopped by for a light lunch late one afternoon . . . and we are still singing their praises! The shoppe/café is nestled in the Northmill Plaza. Step inside and you’re greeted warmly by staff. The charming bake shoppe beckons you to plan your dessert first. However, we recommend you begin by reviewing the delightful menu with a cold iced tea or a Jack Nicholas.
Like surprises? We do, and were pleasantly surprised at the arrival of two absolutely delicious pumpkin muffins as we waited for lunch to arrive. (On another visit, heavenly chocolate chip muffins were the muffins-of-the-day!)
We ordered the three cheese and chives quiche which was beautifully prepared and so very good, and served with sliced tomatoes. We also sampled the chestnut soup that was Spectacular with a capital “S!” One sip of this flavorful soup with caramelized onions and you’ll think you are dining in a five-star, Zagat-rated restaurant! We do mean exceptional.
The paninis looked wonderful. They’re served with freshly baked potato chips, plus you can choose your bread (plain Ciabatta, multi-grain, focaccia or caramelized onion focaccia) and your pickles (spicy or dill). Alaina’s also features a very nice selection of salads.
Alaina’s Bake Shoppe and Café is owned by the very talented husband and wife team, Brent Witherell and Alaina Sabatello-Witherell.

Plan to take home a few scones for tomorrow’s breakfast . . . we are especially fond of the lemon scones with sugar topping. And, take a sneak peak at the Bake Shoppe Goodies.
PB Girls Dine promises you will be thrilled with your visit to Alaina’s Bake Shoppe and Café!
