Sugar Bar

There are many different kinds of bakeries - some that focus on homemade breads, some that offer donuts until they sell out, and then there are some over-the-top experiences that bringing out the sweet tooth in everyone.

Sugar Bar in Morgantown is the latter. Located in the Suncrest Towne Centre, the shop focusing on sweets and coffee has dozens of different sweet options that change up by the day and offer something for everyone.

First of all, the space is absolutely lovely. It's trendy with a living wall and neon sign.

They have lots of green plants, gold accents and chandeliers.

Let's start with the coffee: They have a full espresso bar, plus specialty drinks and teas.

And then for food - they have things like savory scones, croissants and more.

And then the desserts - oh my goodness. There's everything from macarons and cake to cannolis and cupcakes.

I wanted to try a little bit of everything, so let's get to it.

First, I had a quick bite of a birthday cake macaron. I have had quite a few macarons in my day from some very talented bakers. I wouldn't say this is the best, but it wasn't bad. And, I'm happy to see Morgantown have some options for them.

Then, there was a mini key lime pie. I just love anything in mini form. I'm not a big key lime pie person - the sour sweets have their place, but it's not what I would typically gravitate toward. this had a beautiful, flavorful crust and a dollop of meringue that was a perfect balance to the sour filling.

Cupcakes are prevalent throughout ... the country ... but the strawberry cream cheese cupcake just looked like it would hit different so I ordered one of those, as well.

I saved my absolute favorites for last. This tres leches cake is ... beyond. It's so moist and creamy and sweet and just like the equivalent of being all snuggled up in a cozy blanket - but for your tastebuds.

And this scone - rosemary, thyme, parmesan. I could eat this for breakfast every day. It is savory but slightly sweet and just perfectly balanced.

Sugar Bar

I did not get a quiche, though that's another favorite. I love a savory pastry. But if you get one, let me know how it goes.
