You’ll find all kinds of parking at The Corners of Brookfield – underground, parallel, diagonal, and lot. The day I went, 382 parking spaces were available straight ahead! The Goddess and the Baker is located next to Wahlburgers and across the street from Cafe Hollander. As you enter, you’ll see a sign explaining that they only accept plastic so be sure to bring your debit or credit card with you. No cash allowed!
It was busy the day I decided to visit. So busy that I didn’t see any tables when placing my order, so I ordered my London fog and Greek style lemon chicken soup to go. They offer oat, almond, and macadamia milk for your beverages. Even though I grew up in Hawaii, macadamia is still novel to me, so I ordered that for my drink. As luck would have it, a table opened up, so I got to stay and enjoy my meal.
While they don’t have much outdoor seating, you’ll find large tables for groups or individuals, smaller tables, and comfy plush chairs inside.
They have a full menu that includes breakfast, bowls, smoothies, coffee, tea, soups, salads, and desserts. This is larger than some fast casual restaurants, yet the staff knows where to find you after you find your seating. No pagers or numbers for your table.
You can admire the beautiful and delectable desserts in the glass case – macarons, cake pops, scones, multi-layered cakes, cookies. So many choices!
I didn’t see any high chairs for littles, but if you do need a changing station, be sure to visit the single stall bathroom at the end of the hall, around the corner from the pastry case.
Whether you need a place when you’re in the area to shop, visit the Brookfield Public Library or the Elm Grove Public Library, to meet friends, or to ice skate, then you’re bound to find something to enjoy at Goddess and The Baker.
Two coffee shops down, five to go.
