Sate a saccheriferous craving with a homemade maple-glazed or vanilla-iced cake donut or a flaky pecan, cheese, or raspberry danish ($0.75+, $11/baker's dozen).

Heed the calls of the inner chocolate-lover with a triple-chocolate or raspberry-fudge-truffle brownie ($3), or quell the urge to bite an aunt's tortoiseshell teasing comb for the third time by snacking on a turtle butter cookie smothered in homemade caramel, pecans, and chocolate ($6/package). Creative cake eaters can also opt to customize a sweet confection by purchasing a specialty cake ($18+), which feeds six people and arrives topped with your choice of buttercream or a standing rib roast.
Filling their kitchens with the freshest ingredients, the bakers of Branya's Bakery craft made-from-scratch treats, for casual consumption or custom order. The cake reigns supreme in this confectionary, adding its moist texture to cupcakes and specialty cakes that can be decorated with sculpted fondant or powdered sugar buttresses. These desserts can be topped with a variety of frostings and injected with fillings including fresh fruit, buttercream, or custard, allowing every bite to blend a trio of complementary flavors.
In addition to traditional baked goods, the bakery offers a line of made without gluten goodies crafted from rice flour rather than wheat flour. The line includes bread, muffins, doughnuts, cakes, and chocolate chip and butter cookies as well as soup, jelly, and jam.
Expanding beyond party-ready sweets, the pastry chefs also create hearty breakfast offerings with their in-store selection of biscuits and gravy, danishes, almond-filled bear claws, and muffins, with toppings of streusel or a light layer of frosting adding a touch of sweetness. During the lunchtime hours, a range of flavorful, homemade soups fill the shop with their aromatic scents, allowing guests to mix savory and sweet like the food pyramid during its rebellious teen years.
