“Wedding cake and red velvet are the most popular,” Nicely said. “We also do homemade cinnamon rolls every day.”
The bakery has now been open for eight months and Nicely has begun to add his favorite part of the business — the All American Soda Shop.
“We have hand dipped ice cream and soda,” he said. “We also have food service at lunch. No burgers. We have things like Philly steak, sloppy joes, and elephant ear tenderloins.”
The soda shop offers soup, salads, wraps, and combination options daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
When the couple was looking for a shop, they first looked near their home in Brownsburg.
“We looked, but every spot was either too small or too big,” Nicely said. “This ship was a Blimpy before, so it was already built out and set up as a restaurant.”
They even have a drive through where customers can pick up a quick drink and cupcake on the move.
“We really enjoy the location,” Nicely said. “There’s a lot of traffic. We try to make it a good value. Our coffee is $1 a cup. Our ice cream is $1.99 for any cone. We have cake, sugar, or waffle cones. There is no upcharge and we make our own waffle cones here.”
At the end of the day the daily fresh baked leftovers are taken to Country Side Meadows and donated to the residents there.
“We want everything baked fresh daily,” Nicely said. “And we also want to give back to the community.”
