Ever since human teeth were replaced with sharpened Micro Machines and nutrition was streamlined to twice-daily gelcaps, people have yearned for old-fashioned food and chewing techniques. Pay homage to the eating practices of yore with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of bakery bites from MeMa's Old-Fashioned Bakery. This Groupon can be used at either of MeMa's two locations, one located in the Power & Light District, the other in the less-illuminated but effectively mood-lit Legends of Village West shopping complex.
MeMa's Bakery whips up traditional tastes, with sweet treats and lunch items made on-site daily. Named after owner Loraine Waldeck's sister's mother, MeMa's prides itself on being family owned, operated, and oriented. Sink your sweet teeth into a playfully decorated, hand-cookie-cuttered sugar cookie, or one of MeMa's signature pastries, such as the traditional English-walnut povitica ($2.99 per slice), authentic German apple or cherry strudel ($2.49 per slice), or the Chateau Avalon ($3.99)—a giant cinnamon roll that's FDA approved for small and medium people too. MeMa's pastries may be purchased individually or in assorted trays ($16.99–$54.99, depending on tray size and pastry choice).
Both MeMa's Bakery locations offer lunch options Monday through Friday (and Saturdays at P&L). The Legends location's menu includes daily specials such as homestyle potato soup and turkey club sandwiches with a cookie and soft drink (both $5.75), and the P&L District location's savory offerings include croissant sandwiches with your choice of protein ($3.49) and pastry pockets ($4.49) stuffed full of surprise, like a purse filled with Philly cheesesteak.
- I go with the cinnamon roll, which I consider one of the best cinnamon rolls in town…No bite of the cinnamon roll can be found without a bit of icing, cinnamon and cinnamon syruppy goodness. They also have several varieties of danishes (I've had the pineapple which was made from fresh pineapple) which are also good. – Jeff H, Yelp
- Mema's truly is an old-fashioned, family oriented bakery that looks like your granny just opened it. – tommy k, Yelp
