Pastries are like Post-it notes: fun to peel apart in layers and sticky enough to adhere to coworkers' foreheads. Sample this versatile treat with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of pastries, coffee, and other treats at The Little Bakery & Cafe in Wendell.
The toothsome offshoot of a popular farmers’-market pastry stand, The Little Bakery & Cafe plates up a delectable menu of handcrafted Greek and American pastries. Get a taste of the dessert that launched a thousand wetnaps by delving into sticky-sweet layers of flaky, golden baklava ($1/piece). Or, secure an assorted half-dozen of any of the homemade Greek goodies ($5.50) to share with friends or five phyllo-intolerant frenemies. Oven-fresh made-to-order pies ($8.95–$10.95) whirl out of the kitchen with molten cores of apple, pecan, pumpkin, or sweet potato, and 12 flavors of homemade ice cream ($1.45–$4.95) await to be piled atop brownies ($1.75), sandwiched between cookies ($0.40 each; $0.75 for two), or repurposed as caulk in extremely semipermanent structures.
Sidle up to the row of red-capped bar stools for fragrant coffee and frappe concoctions ($1.25–$3.75) while surreptitiously flirting with the gleaming, sugar-kissed pastry case. Or, boldly challenge blackboards peppered with menu specialties to rounds of gustatory roulette. Cafe-wide WiFi fuels frantic searches for the correct pronunciation of loukoumades, and rotating selections of local art fill walls and eye orbs with regional flavor.
