Such pairings are no crime at Polk-a-Dot.
The new Addison biz is part bakery, part wine bar. Alongside fresh baked goods are beer, vino, mimosas, sangria, and cheese plates, too.
Grab a seat inside the not-too-sweet space (exposed brick, worn wood tables, antique wall art) and munch on the usual suspects (peanut butter cookies, lemon meringue pie) or more creative treats like cappuccino cake (chocolate cake with mocha cream filling and coffee liqueur ganache), chocolate banana split cupcakes, amaretto apple streusel muffins, molasses oat rolls, or lime-glazed coconut banana bread. For something less sugary, take home a loaf of seed, sourdough, wheat, or rosemary asiago bread.
Everything is made from scratch and cooked throughout the day to ensure ultimate freshness.
In other words, they’ve got it locked up.
