In addition, local baker Karen Scobee is sweeting the deal with homemade danishes, breakfast delights and cakes. In fact, feel free to order your next specialty cake while you are enjoying your morning coffee and warm cinnamon roll!

There’s More!

Sure, you can start your day with fresh coffee and delicious danishes. But did you know you can also start it with a selfie? When you step outside Sweet Roast Café, you’ll discover a bright selfie mural painted by local artists from Empire Murals, Inc.

The mural—thought of by Jessica—features a peach tree with a wooden swing and bright blossoms on the other side. Have fun “sitting” on the swing with your coffee and smile. Don’t forget to show your support and tag #sweetroastcafe, #empiremuralsinc and #lagrangega when you post!
