The Sticky Bun
Opened in 2015, The Sticky Bun focuses on breakfast and lunch, especially their namesake sticky buns, but they also use the space to occasionally allow local musicians to serenade audiences. Acts like Upright Hootenanny and Uncle Ricky have carefully graced their microphone, making sure to wash their hands before playing so no remnants of the sticky buns get on their instruments.
