A new addition to the recently revamped Sutter Street, Sassy Sweets by Monique offers something for everyone with a sweet tooth.

The petite store, with its quaint décor and small café setting, is a welcome change to big-box bakeries. In addition to cupcakes, cheesecakes and brownies, Monique’s menu also features early-morning items like breakfast sandwiches and burritos, as well as lunch fare (think grilled Cuban sandwiches and Chinese chicken salads). However, it’s Monique’s glass bakery case, fully stocked with a mouthwatering cupcake selection and other confections, that truly impresses. Ultra-moist cupcakes are piled high with decadent frosting in original flavors like red velvet cheesecake, white Russian, raspberry lemon drop and salted caramel apple. Never too early for something sweet, I decided on the Breakfast Cupcake. Made with a dense, fluffy homemade pancake batter (swirled with real maple syrup) and frosted with a light buttercream, the moist and flavorful creation was just enough to satisfy even my sweet(est) tooth. The moist, maple-soaked cake was finished with a delicate strip of candied bacon, which added a nice salty texture. The small shop also features a full espresso bar, so you can sip a cappuccino or latte while enjoying your confection. Sassy Sweets by Monique, 604 Sutter Street, Suite 190, Folsom, 916-985-9462, sassysweetsbymonique.com.
