So, this is my first blog of 2015! I've enjoyed a few weeks off, relaxing and enjoying the holidays with family and friends. Saw some good movies, indulged in special baked treats and picked up some after Christmas bargains. I hope your holidays were warm and special.
And speaking of baking, the topic for my first blog of 2015 was going to be Heirloom Bakery and Hearth, opening soon at the corner of Oak and 63rd St (401 E 63rd). For a while there was a sign announcing a Fall 2014 opening...but you know how these things can get delayed! I contacted owners Kate and Scott inviting them for a chat, and they suggested I get back in touch in several weeks--they now hope to open in March. Brookside neighbors are really looking forward to this place--and I’m also excited this corner is turning into an attractive retail shop after years of being an eyesore!
In the meantime, you can buy their delicious homemade breads and sweets nearby at Season and Square, 6205 Oak, or Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters, 419 E 18th St. Contact Kate and Scott Meinke at the website.
Blogs coming up within the next two weeks include a recap of Brookside/Waldo housing stats for 2014 and information on KC’s Restaurant Week!
