Just 4 Me Pastries & Eatery specializes in classic desserts like buttercream-frosted cupcakes and also in creative treats, which includes savory-sweet chocolate-dipped bacon.

Cupcake Girls' resident chefs whip up cupcakes using both time-tested and unique ingredients, drawing from old family recipes enhanced with their own innovative twists. Corral up to a dozen full-size cupcakes or opt for 12 miniature treats, which were regular size until falling victim to a shrink-ray experiment gone deliciously wrong. Cupcake conjurers assemble opulent pastries such as the Serve with Champagne cake, a devil's food chocolate treat they infuse with Chambord liqueur and raspberry juice before crowning it with chocolate shavings and a fresh raspberry. Otherwise, the Get Your Greens treat anoints a zucchini-based cupcake with cream-cheese frosting, and the Perfect Little Pumpkin cupcake marries the flavorful fall fruit with chocolate chips for an autumnal treat that rivals candy corn on the cob.
Cake pops wrapped with fondant take the shape of teddy bears. Cupcakes wear caps of frosting to resemble kids' heroes, from Angry Birds to Sponge Bob to Cars characters. Classic sugar cookies, meanwhile, are limited only by the imagination, forming palm trees or baby bottles to commemorate retirement, a new birth, or a baby's first time share in the Bahamas. At Itty Bitty Cake, sweets are like edible greeting cards, helping friends and family members celebrate milestones and gather together for the holidays.
Like clockwork, Stephen's Bakery’s bakers arrive at 5 a.m. six days a week to begin mixing dough for fresh bread, pastries, and their signature rounded kolacky pastries. They fill the kolacky, an Eastern European specialty dating to the 1700s, with a traditional fruit filling as well as more modern flavors, such as barbecue chicken, bacon-wrapped jalapeños, and sautéed microchips. Customers can smother morning hunger with other sweet treats including donuts, cinnamon rolls, danishes, and muffins, whereas at lunchtime, the bakery serves up Nathan’s all-beef hot dogs inside of pillowy housemade buns.
