Birchwood Cafe Request for Support

Dear Neighbors~

My name is Tracy Singleton and I write to you as both neighbor and neighborhood businessperson. I own three adjoining properties in Seward: my home of almost 18 years at 2501 33rd Ave South, the neighboring house at 2505 33rd Avenue South, and the Birchwood Cafe, the business I’ve operated for almost 17 years at 3311 East 25th Street.

As the Birchwood Cafe approaches our 17th anniversary, I am truly grateful to the Seward community. I’ve been able to grow a neighborhood business and support a burgeoning local foods movement, literally in my own back yard. Raising my daughter in the embrace of both the Birchwood and Seward communities is part of the good fortune of owning a local business with deep roots; roots that stretch back to the original Birchwood owners and stewards of this important neighborhood legacy.

Sunday: Cake Eater says goodbye in Minneapolis | article at Twin Cities Daily Planet

Media_httpwwwtcdailyp_uwswg

Emily Moore Harris and Sheela Namakkal made a big splash even before opening Cake Eater Bakery & Café in the former Clicquot Club space in South Minneapolis’s Seward neighborhood. Sheela had built something of a reputation around Miel y Leche, a catering business that sold to individuals for weddings, birthdays, office parties, and to select venues around town, including the Modern and Quixotic Cafe. Emily was well-known up and down Lyndale Ave., having worked at Caffeto, the Wedge, Ecopolitan, and Treehouse Records. Then, a few months prior to opening their business in April 2010, the vivacious duo began introducing themselves—and their delectable wares—to Seward residents at various events, including a benefit for the Seward Neighborhood Group, and the first annual Franklin Frolic, both at Welna II Hardware.
