Location: Sugar mamas is located off the bustling downtown area in an area that seems to be undergoing gentrification. It seemed a good place to wonder about a bit and see what was being constructed.
Atmosphere: inside there is no seating. There are two bakery cases with a mixture of pastries and baked goods, heavier on baked goods. Did not seem to be coffee options.
Service: the day we were there the place was being run by one young woman. I asked her if she did all the baking and she said yes. She was efficient but not particularly friendly.
Food: There were cookies, cupcakes, brownies, danish, and scones. We ordered an almond cheese Danish, a red velvet and a spicy chocolate cupcake, an orange sugar cookie and a plain sugar cookie, and a brownie. The Danish tasted better than it looked. It was covered with slivered almonds and a light drizzle of frosting. Inside it was not flaky but chewy and flavorful with only a touch of cheese. I heated half the next day, and it was still good. Cookies were crunchy but tasty. The plain had a definite taste of almond extract. The other tasted of orange. Both were frosted with a glaze that was dried on the cookies. These tasted very good, fresh and not stale, but they are not soft. The brownie was very rich and deep, dark chocolatey, quite good with a rich dark chocolate frosting. The cupcakes were the least appealing. While the frosting was good, the cupcakes were dried out and crumbly.
