You know a bakery is good when they sell out of everything on their first day. I’m a huge sweet lover, so when I go to a local bakery, I definitely pick up as much as possible. That said, we here in Michigan are very fortunate to have a wide range of great local bakeries to appease our treat needs.

Now, a local bakery just had its grand opening, and everything was so tasty that they sold out of everything in one day. Don’t worry- they had fresh treats for the next day.

Last week marked the grand opening of Sweet Encounter Bakery & Cafe in Lansing. The bakery is extra special, because it offers completely gluten-free items, as well as some vegan items. I’ve had some incredible vegan treats, so that sounds like a win-win to me. They opened inside the Knapp Building in downtown Lansing. “Thank YOU for allowing us to sweeten your day!” Sweet Encounter said on Facebook. “We want to thank everyone who stopped by yesterday for our first day open in our new space. We SOLD OUT! We are humbled and speechless. We appreciate each of you and look forward to see you all again. We are so excited that you all are excited about our new space.”

Sweet Encounter will also offer classes for children and adults. Because of the pandemic, the bakery is also giving a virtual class option. Their hours in the Knapp Building are every day (except Monday and Sunday) from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., with extended hours Friday remaining open until 6 p.m. What’s your favorite local bakery?
