Luna Bakery Cafe Chosen as a “Little Wonder” by Cleveland Plain Dealer

Luna BakeryOn April 13th in the Food Section of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Luna Bakery Cafe was named one of 24 Little Wonders, “Teeny-tiny” places with great taste.  Laura De Marco wrote:  “It’s hard to resist the cookies before lunch at this charming bakery-cafe.  They’re that beautiful, and tasty.  But so are the savory and healthful lunch paninis, salads, sandwiches and crepes, especially the grilled cheese panini with tomatoes and whole-wheat crepe with roasted portobello.  They’re all perfect to enjoy in this compact corner spot on Fairmount Boulevard off Cedar Hill.  It greatly expands when the cafe seating outside opens in warmer weather.” Congratulation to Bridgette Cavenaugh and her staff!  Spring is here with better weather and an opportunity to enjoy the outdoor seating at Luna Bakery Cafe and enjoy their delicious offerings.
