Ramona Susan’s Bake Shop has been serving up nostalgic treats since 2015. The bakery is a partnership between Betty Halpenny and Elly Koenig. The idea and branding was inspired by Betty’s mom Mona (Ramona) Susan. The idea behind the bake shop is simple: Create all scratch desserts on-site with a focus on flavor and quality. They aim to be a destination for today’s Mom’s and Dad’s – that long for their mother’s made-with-love desserts and who want their kids to have that experience, but who just don’t have the time. Each dessert takes a pinch of the duo’s childhood favorites and a dash of Ramon Susan’s essence, and they mix them together with 30 years of commercial baking experience. They want each dessert to be delicious without the fuss – no 18 ingredient recipes here. Instead, a focus on the simpler classics and a celebration of those long-ago simpler times. The bake shop features cookies, cakes, cheesecakes, puddings, brownies, cupcakes and more. The duo specialize in the holidays and they love to show off their creativity with theme treats. The bakery is also known as a premiere destination in the region for vegan and gluten free treats and baked goods.
For May, look for not one, not two, but three sets of special menus to celebrate all the spring holidays- starting with May the 4th, followed by Cinco de Mayo and then of course, the holiest holiday of them all – Mother’s Day!
