Palmer’s Sweetery & Café opened one year ago on Highland Place in Maplewood Village, and owner Kia Palmer wants us to stop in for their birthday party on February 11th.
And of course, the biggest treat is their fresh-baked selection of scrumptious sweet and savory food.
Walking in to Palmer’s, it’s hard not to drool from the smell of baked goods. “We make everything in house, and we try to change up the menu frequently,” says Palmer, “but we always have basics like biscuits, 2-3 types of quiche, and hand pies, along with our scones and other baked goods.”
If you’re in the neighborhood on Sunday morning, you will see people lining up for one of the newer basics: delicious freshly made donuts.
For those who don’t want to travel out to pick up breakfast, Palmer’s now has a pre-order menu, which you can buy in advance and heat up at home. Perfect for cold and snowy winter mornings when you don’t want to pull on all the winter gear to get breakfast.
During Palmer’s first year in Maplewood Village, they have created some signature menu items you will need to taste to believe. The most well-known of these is the Lavender Latte, which has achieved cult status on the Swap SOMa Lounge Facebook group, and is being called a “phenomenon.” “We are always playing with flavors and finding new things,” says Palmer.
Another surprise hit this year is Palmer’s classic homemade cakes. “We didn’t start with cakes on the menu, but I had a customer request, and decided to try it,” says Palmer. It was so well received, she decided to make more. Now you can order a classic buttercream or ganache-coated cake customers rave about.
Palmer’s can cater your baby shower, birthday or brunch, if you need more than just cake.
Information will be available soon if you are interested in having a party there. But if you prefer to learn as you eat, Palmer’s will offer baking classes in the new year, too.
So grab a Lavender Latte, a hand pie, and enjoy Palmer’s second year in Maplewood Village. See you at the party.
