Kittie’s Cakes Bexley

The magic of Kittie’s Cakes is real. The original German Village location is so memorable it was one of my first-ever blog posts, and even after the passage of time and the consumption of innumerable treats, my infatuation hasn’t waned. So upon learning that Kittie’s opened a new Bexley outpost, I was there in a jiffy. The shop is small but bright, and is attached to Gramercy Books, the perfect place for browsing to walk off your carb overload.
All the baked-fresh-daily goodies you already know and love are there, including the enchanting mini cupcakes, bacon cheddar scones ( I repeat BACON ), cinnamon rolls, as well as other delicacies. Don’t forget about the Facecookies either – immense, thin cookies larger than your entire head. Go for the chocolate chip, adorned with a sprinkle of salt.
But there’s even more bites to cherish at Kittie’s Bexley cafe. The infamous Egg Sammie, only for sale on Sunday at the GV bakery, is available from 7-12 every day. The sandwich consists of a fluffy egg wedged in the middle of an “everything bagel” spice-sprinkled biscuit. Add a drizzle of hot honey, and this sammie is worth the drive alone. Another new menu addition is the yogi and granola: plain yogurt, house granola, and lemon curd. From lunch until close, there are different “between bread” options. Take the Caprese, homemade foccacia topped with pesto, fresh mozz, and tomato; it’s simple and perfect. You can also sample the cashew butter and strawberry jam sammie, or nibble on the housemade cheese crackers. Have you noticed everything is made from scratch yet? The selections are limited, but when the choices are this good, you won’t leave hungry.
Most important of all, the new shop has extended hours from the original bakery. Now, sell outs are less likely with increased production, and you can enjoy your favorite items until 6 or 7 at night. And with a focus on a laptop-free environment, Kittie’s is a great place to unwind with a cup of Stumptown coffee, a chai latte, or hot chocolate with (you guessed it) shop-made marshmallows.
Culinary Clue: Don’t forget to try to catch Linus the Golden Retriever (linus_the_golden_retriever on Instagram) when he visits. He is the shop’s lovable mascot, and has even been known to balance cupcakes on his nose! His moms (the owners) give back to many charities through the business, including the Capital Area Humane Society.
