About a 10-minute walk from Esplanade is this humble bakery-and-then-some. House-baked pastries, bagels, and biscuits are on tap, as are the requisite cupcakes. Theirs, in standard and exotic flavors (Sazerac!), are particularly delish. The lunch fare fares less well; by the charming looks of it all, you expect it to be better. Egg dishes work better than sandwiches, which skew dry. The corned-beef hash special, if available, is a highlight and a simple poached salmon salad worked well. Best buck you’ll spend today: dollar cupcake with lunch. It’s not called Cake Café for nothing.
