A place I have found myself frequenting is Gourmandise Bakery downtown. Most people just refer to it as The Bakery although its formal name is Gourmandis and its located on 250 South and 300 East.
I looked up the word Gourmandise online to figure just what does this strange word meant: def. unrestrained enjoyment of fine foods, wines, and the like. It can be used as a noun or a verb. Here is the dictionary example of is use as a verb: “You could see the gourmandise shining on his rosy lips” (Glenway Wescott). Well the funny word does give high expectations for this cute inner-city bakery.Let me be the first to tell you that the expectations will be met and even exceeded. I started going here to buy cakes for parties at my work in Deer Valley. Deer Valley folks expect nothing but the best and everyone loved the cakes. I’ve recently gone for Saturday breakfast and enjoyed their homemade yogurt with fresh berries, toasted almonds, and rasberry preserves- amazing! Just the homemade yogurt was enough but then with all of the toppings I was completly in love. And this is just one of many tasty delights at The Bakery. Try a bran muffin or a blueberry scone; take a loaf of cinnamon apple bread home; or endulge in a tasty dessert after a dinner downtown.
