May Digest

Monthly Treats + our Midtown Drink of the Month

This May, we're SO READY to welcome fresh, fruity, triple-layer Blueberry Cake and compote-filled Cupcakes back to the case! Our fluffy vanilla cake features our usual assortment of everyday delicious ingredients like fresh eggs, the best vanilla we can find, and lots of real butter, but the addition of blueberry compote filling made from scratch in our kitchen by cooking down just the right amount of sugar with loads of fresh berries from local farmers makes this treat the shining star of our summer menu. We whip fresh berries into the cream cheese icing for an extra punch of blueberry goodness, too.  

Our Rosette Cookies are also back this month just in time for Mother's Day! Our signature butter cookies are so flavorful on their own, but swirled with a rich rosette of buttercream, they’re downright decadent. Choose vanilla, lemon, or strawberry... or all three!

We're ushering in warm days with slices of fruit pie, too! Blueberry Crumble Pie and Strawberry Honey Pie will both be in the case throughout the month, and both feature fruit from local farmers. Check out this month's lookbook for a feature on one of our favorite farming families, the Gilbers. Pie is a breakfast food for sure.

Plus, the Drink of the Month featured at our Midtown location is the the Bee's Knees Latte, an iced or hot customer favorite featuring espresso, steamed milk, lavender syrup, white chocolate, and honey -- plus fresh lavender buds as a garnish!

Refilling our Community with Positive Change Jar Recipient: Family Safety Center

Back in 2008, Kat decided to fundraise for community organizations doing amazing work in our city instead of charging customers for drip coffee refills. Ten years later, "the jar" is still a customer favorite, and we're thrilled you all get so involved in the nomination process and give so generously.

This May, we're featuring Family Safety Center! FSC’s core programs encompass case management services, victim advocacy, LGTBQ outreach, awareness training, emergency sheltering, elder abuse prevention, and an evidence-based residential summer camp for children who have experienced domestic violence. In 2018, FSC served 2,700 domestic violence victims in Shelby County from more than 40 zip codes. This is a huge effort in our city, and we're honored to be able to support it at our counter this month.
