Suzanne’s Bakery and Eatery is probably one of the best kept secrets by locals in Athens-Limestone. One might wonder if their guarding this gem’s location so as to keep on the fresh baked goodies and daily crafted lunch options to themselves. But we’re swinging open the doors and inviting everyone to come enjoy the treasure that’s Suzanne’s as she prepared a variety of Valentine treats to add a special touch to your plans.
Tucked inside Suzanne’s little eatery in a plaza tucked behind CVS at the corner of U.S. Highway 31 and Forrest Street in Athens is...
... a cooler case stocked with pre-prepared entrees like Lasagna Casserole; Shepherd’s Pie; Southwest Spaghetti; and more plus you’ll find a selection of sides too. A variety of salads are often tucked inside including Pasta Salad, Broccoli Salad, Pimento Cheese and the crowd-pleasing and always in demand Strawberry Pretzel Salad – unless, of course it’s sold out because it’s so popular. Along side the salads you’ll find dips like Mexican Corn Dip, Dill Pickle Dip, Texas Caviar or whatever creative concoction is stirred up in the kitchen. These little shortcuts can save you time in the kitchen for your Valentine’s Dinner at home.
Suzanne’s is known for doing specialty shaped cookies – like Elvis which you’ll see around his birthday or broken heart cookies to honor “Heart Break Hotel”; the State of Alabama which debuted for the Alabama 200 but has found many uses including rooting on your favorite teams; and if you’re pre-ordering go ahead and ask how they can make a cookie order even more special with cheerfully piped designs on the cookies. Suzanne’s even has a take-home Cookie Decorating Kit for Valentine’s featuring heart-shaped cookies, white and red frosting already in the piping bag and two types of Valentine-color sprinkles available for order for $15.00 (plus tax).
Looking for the more traditional Valentine’s treat of Chocolate Dipped Strawberries? Suzanne has you covered for $20.00 per dozen (plus tax). A unique chocolate-covered treasure would be the Hot Coffee Bombs and the Hot Cocoa Bombs for $2.99 each (plus tax). But if you want to really wow the lady in your life, Suzanne has created a Chocolate High Heel kissed with coarse sugar for sparkle and filled with Cake BonBons dipped in chocolate and drizzled and drizzled for drama for $15.99 (plus tax).
