Break from the rapid beating of seasonal gingerbread batters and take refuge in a European-style café that has a variety of Thanksgiving meal-ending stomach-pleasers. For $8, today's Groupon gets you $16 worth of freshly baked bakery bites at Jay WaLe’s Bakery-Bistro, named 2009’s Best Bakery by The Pitch, and, unlike most bakeries, it's not also the headquarters of a cookie-gang.
Blood-orange-hued walls, clothed tables, and cozy nooks give the café an intimate and inviting feel. The intoxicating scents of fresh baked goods (sticky coffee cakes, gooey apple strudels, flaky croissants, savory scones, kooky cookies) greet you upon arrival and violate your nose-space with or without your permission. Count on finding a variety of truffles, chocolate treats, and specialty desserts all baked on the premises by people. Prices vary: full cakes run $25, slices are $2.50, and individual cookies range from $.60 to $.70.
Get this Groupon to sweeten up a morning (Jay WaLe’s is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), stock up on Thanksgiving desserts and relieve family members from your lackluster pastries, or end the weekend on an indulgent note.
Note: This Groupon is only good for Jay WaLe's retail bakery items.
- Reflecting Hume’s sense of home and family, it’s intimate and comfortable, and the refrigerated pastry cases are laden with her handiwork: cheesecakes; beautifully iced layer cakes; and hand-made candies, cream puffs, toffees and truffles. – Charles Ferruzza, The Pitch
Take Credit for This
Today’s Groupon can help you carry out a holiday ruse: passing off professional baked goods as your own handiwork. You’ll impress friends and quiet relatives who doubt your baking prowess. Here are some other things it’s worth falsely taking credit for:
- local babies
- the trumpeting coming from the other room
- authorship of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
- singlehandedly defeating a ballot initiative to “make crime legal”
