Merely Sweets, New Cupcakery, Coming to Downtown Brea
Anne Marie Panoringan
Spotted off Birch Street, signage for a new cupcakery (and possibly more?) near Cold Stone Creamery and Color Me Mine. There is no website, and property management had no further information other than it expects the shop to be open in the next 60 days.
After losing other chain eateries (Gaucho Grill, Pane e Vino, Red Brick Pizza and Fatburger) over the past couple of years, maybe placing bets on newcomers is its new strategy? Take a look at the past year: Sciacca's Social Club and Grill, Entourage Gastropub and Berkeley Dog all opened in the area originally referred to as Birch Street Promenade. Only time will tell.
Merely Sweets, 260 Birch St., Brea. Phone and website information not available at this time.
