Bribery is situated in an unassuming strip mall, but walk through the front door and you are transported into another world. A cozy tearoom of bright and pastel blue, pink, white and cream welcomes and envelopes you in warmth and heavenly aromas. You will want to sit and stay a while here. I visited during the soft opening and walked away with a box of treats to-go. The big favorites were the Cinnamon Rolls (gooey and sweet) and the Chocolate Caramel Brownies topped with toasted almonds. I love those brownies so much, I returned not too long ago for a boxful. I served them with vanilla ice cream to my dinner party guests and they were wowed. A great way to cap off the meal.
At Bribery there are cookies, pies, cakes and tarts, among other sweet treats. There are also savory items available like Bacon & Cheddar Popover, Quiche, and Potato, Ham & Parmesan Egg Cup. Recent daily specials have included Ham, Egg & Cheddar Biscuit Sandwich, as well as BBQ Pulled Pork, Cheddar & Caramelized Onion Croissant. You don't need a sweet tooth to enjoy yourself here. They offer espresso drinks using Casa Basil Coffee, sodas, teas, and juice. There are even kitchen accessories available for purchase for that last minute gift. Be sure to check out their Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages to learn about their daily specials at the bakery, or sign up for the newsletter to get the latest updates. You can make special requests or custom orders on their website or by phone. More good news--a second location is planned to open at the AMLI development in Mueller near the end of the year. The new location will feature "a bakery by day and a dessert bar by night with cocktails and plated desserts." Stop by (closed on Mondays) to find out what all the fuss is about.
