From USA Today to Charlotte Magazine, national and local publications have a lot of positive things to say about Suárez Bakery. The bakery has been around since 1992, its team crafting sweets from scratch much to the delight of locals. They offer everything from customized cakes and cookies to artisan doughnuts, unique brownies and bars, and unexpected pastries and pies.
The offerings change with the seasons, so snag a specialty sweet when you see one. Currently, the bakery is doling out vanilla cupcakes stuffed with cookie butter, pumpkin spice cupcakes capped with cream cheese frosting, and butterbeer cupcakes that ooze a creamy butterscotch filling with each bite. These are in addition to classic year-round cupcakes like the vanilla fudge, red velvet, and signature chocolate. The artisan doughnuts are just as in-demand as the cupcakes—in fact, the specialty doughnuts tend to sell out when they're offered on Saturday mornings. The rest of the week, you can grab more traditional doughnuts such as old-fashioned cake and glazed doughnuts.
