Sweet New Treats in Alkali Flat


A delightful little bakery has sprung up in downtown’s Alkali Flat neighborhood. Sugar and Spice Specialty Desserts, located at the corner of 12th and F Streets, offers a drool-worthy array of upscale sweets, from elaborate cupcakes and individual apple pastries to prettily crafted cakes and delicate nut tartlets. Owner Carissa Jones, whose cozy, fragrant shop is decorated in soft yellows and pinks, says business has been good and that neighborhood folks have been “very supportive.” Don’t miss the elegant, chocolate-glazed opera cake.
