For the past 2 ½ years, Sweet Simone’s has made its home in the Mad River Valley at the Sweet Spot in Waitsfield alongside Scout’s Honor. Loyal regulars and visitors alike make up our beloved customers and we have been dreaming up ways to provide them with more of the things they know and love us for. It was time to expand!
The need for more space spurred the search for a bigger kitchen to support our growth. Then, after reading about On The Rise closing, Lisa’s wheels started turning. When the space on Bridge Street became available, she saw a perfect fit; she could be closer to home, be present in her local community and at the same time, fill Richmond’s need for another great bakery. When she found out the space had the very same street address as the Waitsfield location – 40 Bridge Street – she knew it was meant to be!
Focus in our new location will remain on the same signature products that have built our loyal following, with more room for creating beautiful and delicious sweets. In addition to our retail business, we look forward to doing more wedding cakes and supplying quality sweets for restaurants and hotels as well.
With a full, professional production space, we finally have room for a walk-in freezer and refrigerator, a professional dough sheeter and even a new oven – the very same oven that produced the delicious breads from the now-closed On The Rise Bakery. We plan to bake our hand-rolled bagels in that oven as well as an ongoing selection of breads. The difference is amazing!
Lovers of our coffee…Fear not! We will be serving up the same top-notch espresso drinks and drip coffee served at the Sweet Spot made from the beans of local roaster Awake. In the blind tastings we’ve done over, Awake’s coffees always come out the crowd favorite. Plus, we love having the ability to work closely with our coffee roaster.
We are really looking forward to getting to know our new locals here in Richmond, as well as welcoming our cherished regulars in our new space!
Stay tuned for our Grand Opening announcement coming very soon!
