You know your city is heading in the right direction when a parking lot turns into a bakery (with other stores to come). Ellie’s Bakery recently opened on Washington Street in Downcity to serve up a variety of muffins, pastries, quiches, cookies, candies, and of course sandwiches, if you still have room. We stopped by one morning this week to sample a few of the offerings. My favorites were the ginger pumpkin muffin and iced lime cookies; my two-year-old chose the homemade madeleines, which apparently we both deemed an appropriate breakfast.
