Baked With Love is a charming little café on the edge of Downtown Southport where visitors can pick up bakery-fresh goodies, breakfast fare, and lunches with ease. Known for its delectable made-to-order sandwiches, delicious brunch plates, and yummy cookies, cakes and other desserts, this all-encompassing spot is a good destination to load up on all of the yummy eats required for a full day of exploring the historic downtown.
The café is found within a charming mustard-yellow building a few blocks from the waterfront, which makes it easy to reach on the way in or out of town. The menu is simple but appetizing, with a selection of fresh homemade soups, (like lobster bisque or roasted red pepper and smoked Gouda), homemade salads and quiches, and made-to-order sandwiches. For an easy midday meal, dive into a classic sandwich like the ham and Swiss on sourdough, or the roast beef and brie on a croissant, and for an easy brunch, try the egg casserole which can be loaded with bacon and cheese, sausage and Swiss, or roasted red peppers, asparagus, and feta cheese. With every dish created in-house, and just light enough to appease a big appetite without the diner feeling too full, Baked With Love is a friendly introduction to how good classic deli fare can be.
