From crumbly scones and artisan coffee to opulent wedding cakes and scratch-made cupcakes, Velvet Sky Bakery does a little bit of everything. Its cake studio sits behind large windows, where you can watch pastry chefs work from the sidewalk, and next door, the cafe serves up sweet and savory bites with craft coffee. It all awaits on Leedom Street, just a short trip from Bradfield Court.

If you have a special occasion coming up—no matter how small—make it feel special with a customized cake or cupcakes from Velvet Sky. The bakers offer dozens of cupcake flavors, from simple vanilla and chocolate to lavender-honey-lemon and caramel apple. They even make savory Caprese cupcakes, featuring tomato cake, fresh basil buttercream, and a balsamic drizzle. Almost every treat can be made gluten- or dairy-free upon request. If you just want to grab a cup of coffee and a blueberry scone, stop in at the cafe.
