Raleigh’s New Tasty Treats

Oh, how I love little bakery treats.

There is something very special about the moment that you smile at the barista and point to the delicacy that you’ve chosen to take home. Something crunchy and sweet to dunk in your homemade latte? Perhaps a gooey treat just begging to be topped with a scoop of your favorite ice cream? Or maybe you’d prefer a savory quiche to stow away until tomorrow’s breakfast?

Yesterday afternoon, my Mom and I visited Night Kitchen Bakehouse & Cafe at Seaboard Station in downtown Raleigh. It’s a new bakery near Peace College — right around the corner from Phydeaux. When you walk in, you’re greeted with a smile and the soul-warming smell of brewed espresso. (My coffee addiction isn’t obvious, is it?)


I ordered a small latte and some bakery items to bring home. With dinner, Rich and I enjoyed half of a garlic & rosemary focaccia loaf (dipped in olive oil, balsamic, and cracked black pepper). Fantastic bread! For dessert, I brought home a slice of citrus & olive oil pound cake for myself and an individual bread pudding for Richard. The bread pudding was obviously made in a muffin tin, it was so cute! Great minds think alike, as we each decided to give our treats a boost in the microwave and top them with vanilla bean ice cream!



If you’re in the downtown Raleigh area, swing by Night Kitchen for an afternoon pick-me-up and something tasty. An indulgence a day isn’t such a bad thing!

  1. Grandma Mary and I discovered the Night Kitchen Bakehouse & Cafe last month. Like you, we loved it as well. Your post will serve as a reminder for a return visit…care to join us?

    Love, Granddad Bob

  2. We tried it just after it opened – not much to choose from that day but what we tried was excellent, and yes, very good bread. Love your pics Cassie.

    The bakery was up and running here at 340 yesterday – made another batch of those great carrot raisin muffins – off to have one right now with my second coffee!

    Love you X

      Ah yes, I suppose they were still getting into the swing of things shortly after opening. And yes, it’s so good! Happy to hear that you made some more of those muffins, they really are delicious. Enjoying my coffee right now, and thinking of what bread/muffins I should be baking to have on-hand for breakfast or snacks next week…
