Sweet Treats And More At Marquette Bakery
What initially began as a coffee shop featuring muffins, light deli items and espresso drinks is now an elegant café that offers a vast selection of delec- table items such as French pastries and more.
Babycakes Muffin Company sits boldly along Washington Street in downtown Marquette with its newly painted red facade and warm atmos- phere. Resembling a café found in any well-traveled European city, Babycakes is a must stop for those craving a unique and delicious experi- ence at the local level.
Over a year ago, John and Darci Scheidt officially became the owners of Babycakes which first opened in 1988. After the Scheidt’s moved to the U.P. to chase John’s dream of owning his own bakery, they pur- chased Mr. Donut 22 years ago and changed the name to The Donut Hole.
The bakery started out with only a small selec- tion of b r e a d , donuts, muffins and bagels that John and Darci made themselves each morn-
“My specialty was European breads
so we changed the name to Huron Mountain Bread Company, but once we started increasing the number of employees we had, we kept introduc- ing more products and it outgrew its name — so we shortened it to Huron Mountain Bakery. That was about 10 years ago,” John said.
While the staff at Huron follow their own product recipes, John said they kept the original formulas at Babycakes the same — specifically the muffins, scones and cinnamon rolls.
One market Babycakes has expanded into is quick lunch options, offering a large selection of sandwiches, wraps, salads and soups. There are two soups available per day — one meat-based and the other being a vegetarian or vegan option.
Sandwiches from the pristine cases can also be heated since Babycakes has a high-speed panini press which heats a sandwich within minutes.
“You can be in and out of here in 10- 15 minutes for lunch,” John said.
The biggest addition people may have noticed, though, is the assort- ment of rich, delicious French pastries filling the refined cases.
Some of the pastries include fresh food tarts, mousses, high-end choco- lates, and an array of gourmet six-inch cakes. However, customers can expect to see a lot more filling the cases in the future.
But that’s not all — Babycakes will also provide lunch and event catering in the near future.
Whether you’re looking for breakfast treats for the office, a quick grab- lunch, or a delicious cup of coffee, everything will be served by friendly employees who are ready to greet you.
Babycakes is located at 223 W. Washington St., Marquette. Hours of operation are Mon.-Fri. 6am. to 6 pm.; Sat. 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sun. 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visit Babycakes’ Facebook and Instagram pages.
