for my valley pals, a new bakery/cafe/market Sweet Butter just sprang up in sherman oaks. before opening this week, owner leslie has religiously updated a blog to keep us posted with every construction move, delivery, new dish made. on the opening day, mk and i couldn't wait to visit. quaint little place, making smart use of the outdoor spaces (alley, sidewalk). we felt that some simple layout changes will lead to huge improvement in traffic management. perhaps given the craziness and exhaustion leading up to the grand debut, the store atmosphere that day wasn't particularly warm or personal. but the menu looks enticing and we'll surely check in again soon.
