Something’s brewing from the doors of the new gathering spot in Robbinsville, SadieCakes Cafe, and it’s not just the fresh-roasted coffee. What began as SadieCake Cupcakes in April, 2011, emerging onto the local farm market scene, has evolved into a full-blown fast casual cafe that quietly opened June 25 at 2346 Route 33 in Washington Town Center. SadieCakes is a made-from-scratch bake shop, highlighting not only their SadieCake Signature cupcakes, but other baked goods such as scones, biscuits, turnovers, fresh marshmallows, meringues, cookies, and sweet and savory crostatas. Also offered is a light casual cafe menu including breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, and salads, as well as Fair Trade, Rainforest Alliance, and Organic micro roasted coffee, fresh loose-leaf teas, and other beverages.
Owner Cindy Lukenda says: “We opened SadieCakes for the purpose of being the place to come home to. We wanted to support the local community and create an upbeat and inviting atmosphere that will meet the diversity of residents and businesses in the Robbinsville area. Our focus/design is to create an urban feel within community living. As local residents of Town Center since its inception and in tune to the ‘neighborhood’ perspective, we believe our business philosophy and vision fit perfectly with the goals of Town Center, which in turn provides a strong platform for growth and sustainability of the SadieCakes Cafe. Our mission is to provide our made-from-scratch cupcakes and other baked goods in addition to light meal fare, which is freshly prepared in a relaxing environment that stirs the imagination and delights our customers. Our goal is to be their preferred “third place” for the Robbinsville area – the perfect place for not only eating, but also socializing and working when not at home, school or the office.
SadieCakes currently carries over 35 flavors of cupcakes, with the list growing every day. Selections change daily offering 10 different flavors per day, including gluten free options. Flavors range from the classics, Very Vanilla, Red Velvet, Carrot or Simply Chocolate to the more adventurous PB&J, Thatsa Smore, with toasted fresh homemade marshmallows or the Sunday Morning, a maple cupcake with maple buttercream and fried pancetta. The temptations don’t stop there, with other options such as the blueberry lemon scones, cheddar chive biscuits, fresh made quiche or a banana Nutella turnover to start your day, alongside a cup of their Sadie’s Sunshine blend fresh roasted coffee. Lunch selections are a fresh array of light salads and sandwiches, such as the Rustic Bruschetta, the Farmstand Panini or the Buffalo Blue, just to name a few.
SadieCakes offers custom cupcakes and cakes for any event. They have also begun providing private classes ranging from baking, decorating, cooking, as well hosting parties and private events. Additionally, the kitchen at SadieCakes is also available for rental to other small businesses looking for commercial kitchen space.
