Aprille and Vern enjoy a visit from Reine Bayoc, Owner and Baker of SweetArt, an art gallery and bakeshop in the Shaw neighborhood of St. Louis. It’s a product of Reine’s passion for all things sweet and savory. She shares the space with her husband, Cbabi Bayoc, an artist who covers the walls with his original works of art. Before Reine and Cbabi opened SweetArt in 2009, she had begun serving her famous cupcakes and signature vegetarian burgers to friends and family while dreaming of her own bakery. After years as a vegetarian, she wanted to open a place that gave vegetarians the ability to choose anything off of the menu and not be limited. Some of those goodies you can expect to find are a BLT sandwich with bacon substitute, wraps and meatless chili on nachos or in a bowl. Each dish is named after a street in the Shaw Neighborhood. And no need to fret…Reine also provides numerous options for customers with a sweet tooth. Several of her cupcakes are also vegan! Today, SweetArt has the great pleasure of being invited to birthdays, baby showers, and weddings.
