The bakers at Bread Head Bakery & Coffee Shop have an obsession with freshness, imbuing their baked-daily breads with ingredients such as whole-wheat flour, oats, eggs, raw sugar, and cocoa powder. Using slices from these fluffy loaves, they craft delicious dishes all day, such as the Meat Head sammie—a blend of pepperoni, cheddar, honey ham, and house-made stone-ground garlic mustard served with a fresh-baked muffin. They also specialize in breakfast fare (which they cheekily name “wake-and-bakes”) such as breakfast quesadillas, as well as premium coffee, which they grind fresh before brewing each batch.
Beneath an ice-cream cone cocked at a jaunty angle, Aimee’s Drive In dispenses handheld American staples. Whether out on the patio seating, or at the wheels of their cars, visitors enjoy treats such as shakes, sundaes, and cones. From the grill emerges a menu of burgers, hot dogs, and charbroiled nostalgia.
Each day at BabyCakes Cupcakes at Mack's Bakery, the 12 cupcake flavors are different from the day before. These flavors are inventive plays on the expected, such as the Campfire S'mores, a double-chocolate cupcake with a graham-cracker crust and marshmallow frosting, or the Cup of Cocoa, topped with toasted marshmallows and perfect for people who don't want to drink their cocoa or freeze it into a slab. Although it started as a cupcake-only bakery, the staff has extended its offerings to include scones, cakes, donuts, and cookies.
With a wire whisk and passion for confection, Bonnie and her daughters Rachelle and Michelle whip up more than 10 styles of plump specialty cupcakes ranging from french toast and cherry cola to gingerbread. Maple and vanilla whipped icings sweep effortlessly across cake tops before being drizzled with caramel, or capped with crispy crumbled bacon. The café's wafting aromas of freshly baked blueberry muffins are joined by brewing coffee, steaming espresso drinks, and slowly steeping teas. Patrons may also peruse Magic City's hand-painted crafts such as candles, notepads, and crocheted wire jewelry.

The fondant petals of a magnolia flower cascade down the face of a cake, fading from white to violet to midnight blue. Bunches of white roses burst from the top of a quintuple-layered, frosty white cake. Singular and elegant, cakes such as these have earned The West Side Bakery a variety of awards, including a spot among The Daily Meal's 50 best wedding cakes in America.
Though custom cakes are The West Side Bakery?s specialty, pastry chefs apply the same meticulous standards to other award-winning baked goods. They bake seasonal fruit pies, craft peach hazelnut tiramisu, and make more than a dozen varieties of cheesecake. Pastries run the gamut from simple shortbreads and biscotti to ?clairs and cannolis. Additionally, the shop touts a huge vegan menu that includes vegan cakes and tarts.
Patrons are welcome to take a seat at one of the cozy shop?s tables and devour their treats with a cup of cappuccino. If, unlike the cookie monster, they can?t justify eating dessert for every meal, they can also grab a tasty sandwich, fresh salad, or bowl of hot soup.
