Numero Uno choice in cupcakes, for me is Yum! Kitchen and Bakery.
The name says it all, really it does. If I bring a Yum! cupcake anywhere – I get the same reaction, “Yum!”.
!”. I fell head over heels for the chocolate raspberry yogurt cupcake. oh em gee. I’ve been lucky enough to try a huge array of flavors.
Anytime someone spends the day with me; going shopping, movies, sightseeing bucket listing… etc. They always know I’m going to get them into a cupcake shop.
Yum! has a specialty flavor every day and the only way to find out is to stop in and try it. Banana Bread, Red Velvet, Chocolate Raspberry, Peanut Butter Cup, Banana Blueberry… too many to count.
This scrumptious little patisserie doesn’t just have a clever name, it’s the birthplace of the sugary exclamation!
Aside from delicious pastries, Yum! Kitchen and Bakery offers some of the best salads and sandwiches.
Come on in to feast on the fancy schmancy tuna melt, dill egg salad, szechuan salmon, matzah ball soup, or the lobsta club.
One thing that sets Yum! apart is that they are seasonal, use local ingredients and make everything on-site.
Before they open, the team gets ready for the breakfast. During the day while the restaurant is bustling above, they are making cakes in the basement. After they close, bakers come in and bake bread and past the baton to the pastry chefs who prepare all the baked goods.
If you are ready to dive in, top of the cupcake first, you’ll find them in Minnetonka, St. Louis Park and St. Paul.
