Blue Bird Bake Shop

I caught the soft opening of the brand new Blue Bird Bake Shop Sunday July 25, 2010 in the Audubon Park district. This adorable shop owned by couple Jeff and Joel, is a stunning addition to not only the neighborhood but to the city. They're grand opening is Saturday, July 31st!

We fell in love with BBBS cupcakes at PomPoms, so we already know they rock. At the new shop, they're also carrying muffins, scones, coffee and will soon slowly roll out sandwiches and salads.

Thanks Mark for such a great review! We are all very excited that opening day is here. Keep your ears open for the sandwich debut. They are as yummy as the sweets!

You mentioned every decorating detail, but failed to tell us what flavor cupcakes you took pictures of and tried.

They told me their official opening date and I forgot. Sorry. I believe it was in the next week or so.
