An incredibly special feeling fills the air when you enter the Brick Street’s Bakery. There is a soft murmur of voices and laughter accompanying the 8am morning light as the bakers prep for the day. Cake pans, freshly sprayed, stacked up, await the Sweet Potato Cake batter that has been secretly put together hours before by the owner's husband, Jim.
Here, at this spot, at 12:07pm; Baker, patron, server, manager, and owner shared an extraordinarily intimate moment that is not part of the typical restaurant experience.
“It’s a break in the battle,” sighs Ralph with pride. The statement digs deeper than just describing the kitchen’s rush and the quickness of the servers’ feet. Every person sat down today with their own battles on their shoulders, and for a minute, that weight was made a little lighter. By cake.
Thanks Brick's Street Cafe Team. We'll eat da cake!
