The second business highlighted in this series is closely related to the first, in that they are both bakeries. Kirby’s Cake Shoppe, at 1222 S Duncan By Pass, has been around a long time, but has recently expanded their menu.
Over the years Kirby’s has been the place in Union for cakes—weddings, birthdays, or any other reason to have a slice. They have catered events, and several years ago began hosting events in their new location. Last week Kirby’s even hosted a wedding in their banquet room.
In addition to cakes, the Cake Shoppe offers a variety of desserts, including cupcakes, cheese straws, cookies, and coffee.
But what sets Kirby’s apart is their new lunch menu. For years their customers have enjoyed chicken salad, pimento cheese, hotdogs, and vegetable soup, but now the menu has evolved.
At Kirby’s Cake Shop in Union you can have a Reuben sandwich that tastes like New York, BBQ that tastes like Texas, and gumbo that tastes like Louisiana. There are other items on the menu, but the potato salad and sweet tea are a staple with any plate.
We can’t spill the beans about it yet, but owners Wayne and Ann Comtois promise some exciting, delicious news in the near future.
Thank you, Kirby’s, for offering us another reason to keep business local, and for helping to build a more perfect Union.
