Life is Sweet Bakery Café
will open in late August on Bower Hill Road in Mt. Lebanon. The café will offer an assortment of pastries, coffee and a restaurant menu of soups, salads and sandwiches.
Business owners Kelly Bareford and Christine Mains look forward to sharing their new retail space with their neighbors in Mt. Lebanon.
“We wanted to open a business in a community that we know and that we’re a part of,” Bareford says.
She adds that the 1105 Bower Hill Road café is next to she and Mains’ children’s elementary school, Hoover Elementary School, and that they are excited to open a small business in their neighborhood.
The café will offer an assortment of treats crafted by the self-taught baker/confectioners. Some favorites include: apple cake, salted caramels, chocolates, lemon pound cake, cakes made to order for events and Callebaut chocolate dipped coconut macaroons. The shop will also feature 40 different cupcake flavors from chocolate and vanilla staples to chocolate Irish car bomb, tiramisu and rainbow.
“It’s always been a dream,” Bareford says about opening Life is Sweet. “We’ve always been bakers.”
The retail space will allow seating for approximately 25, coffee, light breakfast and lunch options. There will also be children's menu. To find out about opening news, follow the bakery café on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/lifeissweetpgh
