Everything is baked on premise and one can peek through a window directly into the kitchen to watch the bakers prepare the pastries. While I was there, chocolate ganache was being piped onto a layer cake, which looked amazing.
Mia's has a full coffee bar. They use beans from Brooklyn Roasting Company. Of course, you can grab a cup and a pastry to go, but the bakery has a nice seating area and a cute little outdoor patio in the back. For all those who need to stay connected or are looking for a place to work, there is free WiFi.
Talk to the manager if you would like Mia's to host your special occasions or kids' birthday parties.
So next time you walk down Smith Street, stop by and treat yourself. It's open from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm.
