“I really wanted to share with other people struggling with the same issues as us,” Pickner said. “People will be able to have food they haven’t eaten in a very long time, and that’s what’s really exciting.”
Pickner will sell baked goods like cakes, cookies, and other special treats to the store each week, and breakfast items will include overnight oats, toaster pastries, and toasted buns. cinnamon.
There will also be ready-to-go lunches consisting of sandwiches, salads and pasta salads, and Sinless Sweets will begin serving hot meals for dinner at 3 or 4 p.m. with a new meal each day. The dinner menu will include dishes like stuffed shellfish, lasagna and alfredo.
“Basically, these are things you don’t want to do on your own,” Pickner said. “And I’ve found it’s better to work with what people want rather than just what I want.”
One thing Pickner gets a lot of requests for is fresh bread, which will also be available daily.
The store will have wifi and a Keurig that people can use while they “chill out” or do their work there, Pickner said.
