There is a small retail wine market in the cafe and they also offer custom cakes, cupcakes and desserts out of their on-site bakery. One of their more distinctive offerings are booze-infused cupcakes. The Red Velvet Wine is a favorite that combines dark chocolate with dark blackberry wine and is topped with blackberry frosting.
The space is very suitable to special events! Owner Tammy Phillip often hosts showers and smaller corporate events and she encourages book club and networking groups to visit as well.
The Wine Down & Sweets Cafe Experience
Natty Guy and I visited the cafe recently and enjoyed a super-relaxing evening of wines, treats and sweets. We started with a wine flight before switching to a Malbec but it was hard not to try some of the delicious sounding cocktails. We’ll save those for our next trip!
We sampled the pepperoni flatbread and a turkey and cheddar panini – both delicious and freshly prepared – before moving on to a sampling of sweet treats! With eyes bigger than tummies, we selected a gourmet peanut butter cup cupcake, a maple chai sugar cookie and I won’t say how many truffles. O.M.G.
The environment is so relaxing! We spent some time just walking around, checking out the wine for sale and admiring the artwork and various make-and-take crafts on display. The couch and fire pit area are perfect for end-of-day decompressing. There are board games available as well making for a great family fun night if you have the kids along!
One of the coolest things about the cafe is their extensive special event schedule! The variety is just incredible, from live music events to make-and-take craft evenings to special wine pairing dinners, they’ve got something for everyone. I’m already looking in to one of the craft events for an upcoming Girl’s Night Out. Keep on top of the latest offerings by checking EventBright or their Facebook page.
Lastly, I have to give a special shout-out to the staff member working the night we visited! He was beyond nice, giving us a tour of the premises and catering to our every whim. Well done and thank you.
