A simple whiteboard hangs behind the counter at Honey Bee’s Sweet Treats Cafe, displaying the day’s specials from breakfast through dessert in neat handwriting. Inside the cozy café, self-taught baker Briana rouses morning appetites with eggs, sausage, and cheese paninis and caters to lunchtime cravings with grilled-chicken wraps and pizza that shuns its Italian heritage in its union with french bread. She bakes nearly 20 types of gourmet cupcakes—such as blueberry overload and caramel delight—and decadent muffins with real banana, pumpkin, and apples. Briana can also transform some of her cookies, brownies, and cakes into sugar-free treats upon request.
