Sweet endings

Stop by Chroma Cafe and Bakery and treat yourself to a Valentine’s Day sweet! Among the Valentine’s Day specials are freshly baked cupcakes and conversation heart sugar cookies, as well as Oreo truffles and chocolate-covered strawberries. If you're stopping in to pick up sweets for your special someone, take yourself on a lunch date while you're there! I love the paninis– there are so many options to choose from and all of their bread is baked in house.

No date? No problem.
