Jennivee's Bakery



$$$$Perfect For:DessertCoffee & A Light Bite

Included In

Jennivee’s is a small counter-service bakery cafe in Lakeview that has delicious cupcakes and “sky-high” cake slices, all of which are nicely balanced with richness and sweetness. The options in the shop’s large glass case change daily, but you can count on ube making an appearance, as in the airy, bright purple layered cake with coconut strings. Jennivee’s is mostly a take-out operation that’s casual like a living room, with only a few seats inside (including a golden couch). But when it’s warmer, they have some chairs out front so you can enjoy a coffee and a Mississippi Mud cupcake while getting in some quality neighborhood people-watching.
