More about Sweet's move to Mt. Vernon
I talked to Chris Sikora the owner of both Sweet a bakery and the new Six Mile Coffee. He told me that when Sweet moves from Ellicott City to Baltimore, it won't be bringing the cafe operation with it. Instead Sweet will focus on its specialty cake operations. The move puts the bakery closer to most of the wedding venues used by their clients, who now be able to skip over to Sweet from their planning meetings at nearby hotels.
Six Mile Coffee opened on Frederick Road in Catonsville the day before Halloween, filling the independent cafe niche created when Junction Station Cafe closed earlier this year. The new place, which features a drive-up window, is off to a good start, Sikora tells me. The big cafe hit, so far -- the bread pizzas made from ciabatta Six Mile brings in every day from the new Atwater's Naturally Leavened Bread in Catonsville.
Six Mile Coffee will open at 3 a.m. this Friday, November 26 to serve early-morning shoppers.
