The new owner of the Jefferson Market opened in 2008 with a cake bakery as the core of the business and with meals limited to salads, sandwiches and soups.


I ate nothing but pastries. A tall, triple-layer slice of red velvet cake was shockingly unsweet, all its sugar quotient carried by thick layers of boiled icing (not the typical cream cheese icing). A big brownie square was dark and indulgent, more cake than goo, and a well-nigh perfect companion to a cup of Ann Arbor's Mighty Good Coffee. I thought the pecan pie bar too sugary, being basically the filling of a pecan pie without the savory crust to balance its intensity.
