SweetWeek October 26th-29th

Hello Extended SweetArt Family!

Thank you all for the love and support. Here are the MUST KNOWs of the week:

HOURS, they are a changin' Again? Yes, but for the better! We are now open earlier on Fridays and are extending our lunch menu on Fridays and Saturdays until close! We are also closing later on Fridays and Saturdays. So the new hours look like this:

Wednesday & Thursday 10am-6pm

Friday & Saturday 9am-7pm

Friday will resume it's Friday PieDay with savory and sweet pies (vegan available)...keep reading below to see what this Friday's pies are. And Saturday will be our Vegan SoulFood Saturday (4pm-7pm--evening only). We still get a good number of customers hoping for food after 3p.m.--so here's your opportunity. Come eat with us every Friday and Saturday evening. Now look, we're gonna need to see "somebodies" or the hours will be a changin'...again. You feel me?

This Friday's Pie are: (the sweet ones) Banana Cream, Sweet Potato, and Vegan Chocolate Cream Heaven! (the savory ones) Spinach-Feta, Curry Potato-Avocado and Vegan Chicago-Style Deep Dish Sausage Pizza. Open til 7p.m. on Fridays serving our entire E.A.T.S. menu til close.

This week's Vegan SoulFood Saturday's menu: BBQ Toffu, mackin' Cheese, Collard Greens/Cabbage, and Plantains cooked in coconut milk. Remember, only available from 4pm-7pm Saturday evening. Hope to see you!

This week's Specials are: Pimento-Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I'm from the South, so I hope I'm not the only one excited about this one. If you haven't had pimento cheese, this is a good way to try it. Our house-made pimento cheese is insane. Add FaconBacon or tomatoes to your sandwich. We will also have a BBQ Seitan & Mushroom wrap w/crunchy-herby slaw enclosed in the warm wrap.

Our soup this week is: Roasted Garlic-Tomato (perfect with the pimento cheese sandwich...we did this on purpose, y'all!)

Keep your eyes peeled for our Thanksgiving Pie Order Blog...soming soon. Let SweetArt be the sweet ending to your family's Thanksgiving celebration...we'd be honored.

Keep in mind these words of wisdom: Keep dreamin'...it keeps you young!

grace & peace,

Reine, Cbabi, & the Entire SweetArt Crew!

SweetWeek October 19th-22nd

Hello Extended SweetArt Family,

As always, thank you all for your support and love. Thank you for telling us what you love, thank you for telling us what you'd like, thank you for giving us your business.

This week is so exciting. For our baseball fans, we'll be doing these cute baseball cupcakes--Go Cards!! We'rre still open 10am Wednesday-Friday and 9am on Saturdays. Please come in to try all of the goodness this week. I'm super excited about our Bread Pudding Muffins (yup, bread pudding muffins)! Perfect for this change in weather with a great espresso drink or tea!

This week our lunch special is actually our breakfast burrito (the Edna--named after Cbabi's Grandmother). This burrito is such a hit on Saturdays that we thought maybe people would love it enough to order it through the week. We load it up with scrambled tofu, creole potatoes, cheese of choice, salsa, and vegan sausage. It is truly remarkable (in a good way)!

Some of you know that we've been doing Vegan Soul Food Friday--we still do, but the traditional plate of soul food has changed. Though we love the BBQ Tofu, Vegan Mackin' Cheese, Plantains, & collards, we love other food as well--comfort food. So this Friday's vegan soul food "meal" is a Vegan Lasagna with delicious house-made garlic bread, and side salad. We are excited about this. The weather is perfect for lasagna! We hope we see you Friday--and all the other days we are open.

Keep you eyes peeled for our seasonal cupcakes: White Chocolate Peppermint, Pumkin Patch, and Gingerbread. Tis the season for these little gems.

Our new cupcake price is $2.25 each and $25 per dozen. Butter has gone down in price (yay!!) so our price can now go down as well. Thank you for your loyalty to us when our prices had to increase. We really appreciate you!

Treat yourself this week...be good to yourself...and know you are meant to shine!

grace & peace,

Reine, Cbabi & the ENTIRE SweetArt Crew!

So, this week at SweetArt...

Hello All,

Last week stunk! So many odd, horrible things happened, that I think this week I'll win the lottery (finally!)...if I remember to play!

This week we have so many great things happening. Again the menu changes. Relax, the SweetBurger and 39th (vegan blt) are still on the menu, along with the Magnolia & Shaw with some special add-ins (broccoli, roasted garlic, anyone?). We also have a special, Curry Chik'n Salad Sandwich (so excited for this one!)

Apple-cinnamon bread pudding muffins (perfect at any time), red velvet cheesecake bars (kind of addictive), and pumpkin cupcakes with caramel buttercream or chai-spiced buttercream or maple cream cheese frosting (they're good with all of those!)

Oh, the most important thing: Every Thursday lunch is only $6. Any lunch on the menu. Every Thursday. Oh, and the other important thing: our cupcakes are lower in price. We raised it when butter raised and now we can lower it. The price is back to $2.25/each or $25 dozen. Some truffles cost more than this super-satisfying SweetArt treat...I'm just sayin'. And Cupcake Happy Hour is now $1.55 for any cupcake (that way people who are only getting one cupcake can experience the love too)

So many people have wished us well, and verbally told us how much the shop means to them. We really needed to hear that this week. We love what we do and are so happy to be spreading the "sweet love" in the STL.

grace & peace,

Reine, Cbabi & the SweetArt crew!
