Broadway just got a little sweeter with the addition of Sugar Mamas Too.
Sister store to Sugar Mamas on Fifth Avenue, the newest location features the same cupcakes that Skagway has grown to love, accompanied by some new items such as pesto sticks, Dejon Delights smoked salmon from Haines, cookies and the occasional gluten-free item.
Owner Rebecca Hylton said having two businesses in such close proximity was a bit of a gamble, but when the space became available, she couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
“Having all of the experience from Sugar Mamas, I kind of knew what I was getting myself into,” she said.
By having the two stores, Hylton said she is able to focus on hot foods at the original location, especially their grab-and-go lunch offer.
“Our motto at Sugar Mamas is $10 under ten minutes for a hot lunch item,” she said.
Sugar Mamas Too not only focuses on sweets, but also on local art, featuring post cards, cards and hand made aprons.
“It’s the perfect art for this shop. It’s light hearted and fun, which is what we try to be as a business in general,” she said.
