Magpie's Bakery & Cafe celebrates official grand opening


Tonawanda News — “They sound a little crazy, but they’re delicious,” Carr said. 

They add their own style to other recipes, too — like the York Peppermint Pattie cookies, and the loaded sugar cookies, which are packed with goodies, like pretzels and M&Ms. 

Custom desserts are also available, and the sisters have been baking for local parties and birthday celebrations. 

Apart from sweets, the pair have also added breakfast and lunch items over the past two months. Many different pizza varieties were available Friday, from California white with artichokes and red peppers to three cheese pesto. 

Quiche has also been featured on the menu, along with Mallare’s favorite item to cook — soup.

Offerings have included buffalo chicken soup, southwest tomato and black bean, broccoli cheddar and stuffed hungarian pepper and artichoke. 

“I like to put my own spin on traditional recipes,” she said. “And I just love cooking soup.”

The success of their business and the development of their own recipes hasn’t come without their fair share of hard work though. With cooking for The Village Inn and working at the bakery, Mallare is logging 60 hours of work a week, and Carr is coming close. 

“It’s all worth it,” Carr said.

The cafe is open Wednesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Starting in September, the bakery will be closed Sundays and Mondays.
