A new European-style bakery at North Wall Street and West Nebraska Avenue is open and ready to feed the neighborhood.
Morning Sun Bakery (5602 N. Wall St.) offers a variety of pastries, coffee and espresso products. The eatery has a lot of sitting area inside, and when the warm sun returns, will have a full patio-area.
Owner and baker Lisa Taylor says her specialty is cinnamon buns, which can be made with cream cheese, caramel pecan or glaze.
Taylor said she chose the location because she and her husband lives six blocks away and loves the area.
“There aren't a lot of this kind of stuff up here in the north,” she said. “They have bakeries like this on the South Hill and I thought it was time to bring this to our neighborhood.”
Taylor estimated that she gets a few dozen customers a day, and is hoping that as the business becomes more successful she can expand to offering “lunch stuff” with sandwiches and salads.
