I've been a "regular" at this bakery since they opened this past summer. When this young couple came to town and started up the bakery, I was hopeful, because most places I've lived, it's been hard to find a decent, let alone excellent bakery. After my first visit to Sweetie's, I was thrilled, and feel fortunate that this is available not only to us locals, but to tourists who visit Salida, as well. This bakery is magical, and adds class to our town. I love looking over the baked goods upon entering. Usually tough to make a decision, as everything looks inviting. Sarah, Rob & Brandi are always so friendly to everyone. Kind of an old-fashioned feel to Sweetie's that conjures memories of earlier times when bakeries tended to make yummies that tasted as good as what your grandmother whipped up and you felt so at home. Some of my personal favorites are their fresh herb bread loaf (incredible--I can't keep one around for long, as my husband won't leave it alone--makes perfect sandwiches and toasts up like no other), delectable cinnamon rolls of various kinds, hearty chicken salad sandwiches, the Brooklyn Joanie (a very special breakfast bagel with everything yummy on it) and their apple and fresh fruit pastries are out of this world. The croissants are to-die-for, also. I haven't tried everything yet, as there is so much and always something new and wonderful popping up. This is a high quality bakery that you normally wouldn't find in a small town. Really dresses this place up with some unusual and daring confections that just make one's day. Fun to sit outside at one of the tables in front of "Sweetie's", as there are always friendly and enthusiastic people coming and going. I've heard nothing but raves about this bakery around town, and rightfully so. Absolutely top notch and not to be missed.
