Cake maker Natalia Kost-Lupichuk’s pastry shop and cafe isn’t even a year old, but she’s already developed a fan base, especially in the morning when locals stream into the pretty little place, adorned with wrought-iron ivy and vintage cafe signs, for baked-each-morning treats: apricot-glazed croissants, wonderfully spongy cranberry-orange muffins, and—in a nod to Kost-Lupichuk’s Ukrainian heritage—potato- or sauerkraut-stuffed pierogis.
