There’s no question that June Daley loves baking. Her inspiration was her aunt, now 84, who raised Daley after her mom passed away. “I love the drama of opening the oven,” she says.
Born in Antigua, Daley keeps artificial ingredients to a minimum, utilizing organic baking methods that don’t sacrifice flavor. Think gluten-free, vegan and Keto.
JuneBug Sweet Treats’ Bridgeport location is a former rowhome, with a few tables and a large mural anchoring the entrance. “Bridgeport chose me,” says Daley. “I’ve just turned a year here, and I adore this family-oriented community where everyone knows everyone.”
Cake options (whole or by the slice) include honey spice bundt, lemon pound, banana pudding cheesecake and a beautiful English fruit cake. The pies, cookies and signature scones are also noteworthy.
