Baconery, a bakery/cafe that infuses bacon into sweet dishes and drenches bacon with chocolate, just opened at 911 Columbus Avenue, between 104th and 105th Streets. Don’t ask for the “light” menu.
The idea for the cafe was born when a guy dipped his bacon into some maple syrup and said “Mmm.”
From the website:
“My name is Wesley Klein and I’m a breakfast and dessert kind of guy. One day I was at breakfast and I used my thick-cut bacon to sop up the last remaining drops of maple syrup from my plate and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I eat breakfast for the delicious salty goodness of the bacon. I love dessert for the sugary experience of warm chocolate chip cookies, brownies, syrup on french toast, and more. It only made sense to marry the two together so the world could enjoy it’s long-awaited fantasy.”
The menu is filled with cookies infused with bacon, bacon covered in chocolate and maple bacon blondies.
