Sweet Sammie Jane's is a small boutique bakery offering just what I need - a variety of desserts, many in bite-size nuggets of deliciousness. Co-owners, Angela and Kathy Marmo (Angela's mother-in-law) joined forces to bring both the pastry and the catering world together. The bakeshop is named for Angela's 6 year old daughter Sammie (Samantha Jane) and Kathy's mother-in-law Jane.
Growing up, Angela loved to create desserts for her family. She was always experimenting and baking up a storm in her family's kitchen. Angela went to the French Pastry School in Chicago, then came back to Rochester. Meanwhile, Kathy had already started her own catering business and upon coming back to Rochester, Angela joined in using her expertise in creating pastries. Through encouragement and collaboration, the love of Sweet Sammie Jane's was crafted with the joining of the two. Sweet Sammie Jane's originally opened a location in Chili. It was there that macarons seem to become "their thing." Soon after, the Democrat & Chronicle featured an article on the boutique bakeshop and people began flocking in. The word was out: Sweet Sammie Jane's is a local hot spot serving up fresh and delicious desserts.

Sweet Sammie Jane's newest venture is their food truck that you have probably seen at the Lilac Festival this year, the Food Truck Rodeo at the Rochester Public Market, or at other food truck events. Their desserts can now travel to a location of choice, whether its one of the above mentioned events or your own event. They offer many of the treats that are in their bakeshop. Included in the offering is Creme Brûlée in both chocolate and vanilla flavors! You can also see their food truck this summer at Casa Larga for their patio parties. Look out for her husband Chris as well with his soon to come food truck venture: Holy Roasters. The concept includes a menu with meat that will be freshly carved before your eyes and onto your plate or sandwich. They will also include some healthy ventures to entice the masses.
If you are looking for a way to support local aside from purchasing the yummy delicious treats, think about purchasing a t-shirt or onesie for your little macaron at home, who will one day grow up and want to sample perfection - just send them to Sweet Sammie Jane's. In the mean time, head over to Park Ave and fill up. No one will tell if you go home with a box of baked goods and a few are missing!
