Anyone who knows me understands my love of a cup of coffee ranks up there with a sweet roll heavily frosted, and perhaps some fruit filling oozing out all bright colored and sticky. And since James is most insistent that I not drink coffee without some carb-heavy delight (based on the advice of my Dean Care dietitian) I am rarely without the two side-by-side as I sit down to read the newspaper. Since coffee can have the effect of curbing an appetite, and maintaining weight is very hard for me to do, it goes without saying that sweet rolls and coffee go hand-in-hand at this home.
Which leads me to offer a most sincere thanks to the workers who always present such welcoming faces at Scott’s Pastry Shoppe In Middleton. Over the past two weeks I have had occasion to stop in a couple of times, and there is just something so wholesome and all-American about the young men and women who work behind the counter. They not only have pleasant personalities, but also present themselves in friendly ways, not scared to communicate or laugh, and seem to really enjoy the place where they work.
I contend that one can tell much about a business by the people who are hired to be the ones that make contact with customers. Clean-cut, expressive, energetic, and engaging people are most appealing. Yesterday as I laughed about my desire at some point to try one of their sampler cakes (the type made to showcase wedding party possibilities) as I had marveled at the varieties of yum in one concentrated circle a couple years ago while visiting the shoppe, I was met with a wonderful story about the birthday cake a worker was going to enjoy on December 31st. (The same day my Mom was born.) We laughed and chatted and I was again reminded that it was most apparent more than fine ingredients go into their products, but also a strong desire to make sure the sweets are handed out by top-notch individuals.
If it can be said that there is a small-town feel to a business in a large urban area let it be known it can be found at Scott’s Pastry Shoppe In Middleton.
