New sweet spot

Later this fall, CB2, a home furnishing store owned by Crate & Barrel Holdings, will occupy the northeast corner of Old Woodward and Maple in downtown Birmingham. The space was formerly occupied by Panera Bread and Bakehouse46.  Panera Bread shut down its Birmingham operation while Bakehouse46 has established their new digs just a short walk away at 250 W. Maple Road, in the former home of Adventures in Toys location. Bakehouse46 began as a collaboration between the Cupcake Station and Blake’s Farm. Currently, there are four store locations in Birmingham, Plymouth, Ann Arbor and Rochester. The bakery/eatery offers a variety of sweet treats, including Cupcake Station cupcakes and Blake’s goodies, such as its signature cider mill and gourmet donuts baked onsite daily, sweet apple cider, gourmet apples, and fudge as well as coffee, bagels, and sandwiches. Chelsea Smith, who serves as creative director for the operation, said that the new space is more than three times the size of their former store and has seating for 40 customers. Bakehouse46 is also working with the city of Birmingham to obtain permission to include a small outdoor patio. 250 W. Maple Road, Birmingham
