Slow down and taste the sweet life – their motto
There’s a husband and wife team putting their mark on Savannah’s food map. Self-taught bakers, Cheryl and Griff Day wanted to build a bakery for people to come for quality food, great coffee, and community atmosphere. With a binder full of heirloom family recipes, a lot of hard work and high ambition, this couple has made their dream come true opening Back in the Day Bakery.
The word is out. Not only is Back in the Day Bakery popular with the locals, but the bakery is getting known on a national level for their decadent desserts. Write-ups about this bakery are showing up in national magazines such as Martha Stewart and Food & Wine. This bakery is getting the reputation as The Best Little Bakery in the South.
Their motto is right on target – slow down and taste the sweet life. It’s a very comfortable place to sit and enjoy incredibly delicious baked goods from scratch, just like grandma used to make. Stop by and sink your teeth into a brownie, cookie, or cupcake. It’s a perfect afternoon pick-me-up especially when you pair a sweet treat with a cup of their espresso. Sit back at one of the mismatched shabby chic tables and soak in the retro nostalgia filling the air.
On the afternoon we stopped by, there was a photography crew shooting their latest creations for an upcoming cookbook. Part of the restaurant was taken over by the production, but not enough to interfere with our good time.
As Cheryl says, “Their goal is to make people happy.” I believe they can check this box off their list of goals. People are happy and they keep coming back.
On your way out, don’t forget to purchase a loaf of one of their daily made artisan breads – a yummy addition to any dinner.
