It’s the season of locally grown strawberries, rhubarb, asparagus, and so much more. Time to plan for picnics and barbecues and lots of outdoor fun. Nothing makes the season sweeter than Zig’s Bakery & Cafe at Brick Gables, where goodness is made from scratch.

This is the time of the year when the weather is getting warmer, the flowers and trees are in full bloom, and Zig’s has all your favorite flavors of the season. Fresh strawberry pie is back, with glazed sweet berries and flaky pie crust. More favorites are strawberry rhubarb pie, cream of asparagus soup, orange rhubarb sauce, and applesauce with beets.

Maybe you want to refresh yourself with a big glass of iced latte or cold brewed iced coffee. How about a luscious fresh berry or mango smoothie, a homemade Italian soda, chilled lemonade, or a healthy kombucha beverage. Cool off with an affogato, a wonderful dessert for coffee lovers, made with ice cream and deep, rich espresso.

Speaking of dessert, nothing beats an ice cream sandwich with ice cream sandwiched between two fresh-baked cookies. It’s just what you crave as the weather warms up.

On these wonderful spring-into-summer days, you can rise and shine with Zig’s tasty breakfast sandwiches made on Zig’s own fresh baked bread.
