Cake Royale's New Retail Location

We are frequent shoppers of the West Side Market in Ohio City. Just a short drive from home, we enjoy getting our proteins and specialty items from the market. The only thing that I don't care for there is the produce. So, when we saw that one of our favorite dessert stands was opening a retail location in our neighborhood, we were thrilled!

We stalked their "Opening Soon" sign for quite some time, and then started to forget about it. They opened quietly, but then we always seemed to be driving by after-hours. Well, that finally changed last weekend.

We were headed to the grocery store, and the lights were ON in the new Cake Royale shop on Pearl Road in Old Brooklyn.
We stopped in, and I was immediately struck by the charming Parisian entryway.
This storefront is the family-run business' production facility, but it also has a counter and cooler for grab-and-go items like cakes, cookies, macaroons, and more.
I couldn't pass up a slice of what the owner called "the best of both worlds" with layers of cheesecake and moist (ugh, I hate that word) chocolate cake. Mr. H took home a slice of the Cookies n' Cream, and half of it didn't even last an hour.

They'll also do catering orders, custom cakes, and more. We stood and talked to the owner for about twenty minutes, and her passion for the business and our neighborhood is infectious. When they were looking for a new retail location and production facility, they considered several neighborhoods. But, they ultimately chose to invest in the neighborhood in which they live, and we, for one, are very happy about that! Check them out in the West Side Market, or at the new location.
