A new bakery, offering coffee, tea, desserts and more, has made its debut in the neighborhood. The newcomer to Near East, called Sift + Pour, is located at 2401 Victory Park Lane, Suite 160.

The bakery offers a range of sweet and savory baked treats and beverages to order from. The  “sifts” menu consists of a variety of baked goods that include crêpes, cookies, brownies, cake pops, cheesecake and more. There’s also the “pours” menu, which has an assorted selection of coffees, teas, bottled water, hot chocolate, bottled milk, wine and craft beer.

Indulge in confections such as Rice Krispies Treat, s'mores brownies, raspberry macarons, red velvet cupcakes and snickerdoodle cookies. For a savory bite, try the Lumberjack crêpe, made of eggs, ham or bacon and your choice of cheese. 

The new bakery has gotten an enthusiastic response thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of six reviews on Yelp.

Yelper Jill R.  added, “The cutest new bakery in town! Sift + Pour has everything you could want. ... I couldn't resist and treated myself to one sweet and one savory crêpe and got a Rice Crispy Treat and macaroon to go."
