9 Tasty Sunflour Food and Coffee Pairings

9 Tasty Sunflour Food and Coffee Pairings

Making oven-baked beauties is our passion. Drinking an equally matched beverage with a delightful baked good is the crème de la crème of snacking on a well-crafted treat. We have a lovely selection of organic coffee to go with some of our delicious bakery items.

To Enhance the Experience

Before we begin exploring the wonderful world of Sunflour baked goods, here are some tips to try to add to the tasting experience as you eat:

  • Take a deep breath. Getting enough oxygen helps open up the senses to tasting. It is easier to tell the difference between flavors with a nice deep breath.
  • Have a glass of water nearby to stay hydrated. Drinking water while you eat cleanses the palate to help you enjoy flavors more.
  • Relax and enjoy yourself. Being relaxed allows for a heightened awareness of the moment.

Filtered Coffee

This guy comes in 3 different sizes, from small, medium, to large. Sweet and creamy treats pair well with a filtered black cup of delicious coffee. One of our vanilla bean Blondie cupcakes or any buttercream frosted mini cake goes well with a pleasantly sweltering cup o 'joe. Take a fork full of cake then wash it down with a sip of coffee. 

French Press

Oh, la la! Get fancy with our French press coffee. Have any one of our flaky croissants or a pop-tart. A kind little warning, you may feel like you're sitting at a Paris Cafe when you indulge in this.   

Double Espresso

Straight espresso needs a dessert that is heavy on sweetness. Try our Rolo, Reverse Rolo, or Salted Caramel cupcakes with a shot or two of our golden espresso. The bitterness of the espresso and the sweetness of the caramel will balance each other out in such a luxurious way.  It will have you rethinking what a cup of coffee is for.


Cappuccinos tend to be lighter and balance out the slightly bitter flavor of espresso, so this goes well with one of our delectable breakfast sandwiches. Try dipping a macaron into this luscious concoction too.


The lattes are creamy and foamy and go well with one of our seasonal muffins or the Morning Glory. These two things combined make for a smooth mouthfeel. Enjoy the options of what cups of coffee can help you taste.

Cafe au Lait

Milk coffee fits with buttermilk scones like bread and butter. It's breakfast in of itself. Try dipping the scone in the latte to soak up the tasty milky flavor of the latte. 


An Americano and Baileys cake go so well together you will swear your head exploded. These combine well because of the Americano's distinct, nicely bitter flavor and the sweetness of the cake. Sip the Americano, then take a bite of the Bailey cake. You will experience a burst of sweetness exploding through your senses. This is a great go-to for the coffee lover.    

Dirty Chai

Feeling adventurous? Have a cheddar biscuit with a dirty chai. The complexion of the spiciness, sharpness, and bitterness creates layers of flavors that complement each other.

Dirty Mocha

Our specialty mocha is the perfect complement to our cinnamon roll. The blend of white/dark chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon creates a fine peak of taste that is divine to experience. Take a moment to experience the vanilla shining through as you take a bite and sip. This is a great alternative for the black coffee lover.

Be Adventurous

Don't be afraid to try out your combinations as well. Coffee + Food is always something to enjoy and play around with. We have several other great offerings on the menu, like tea, puddings, brownies, and more. Try different things, find out what you like, and come back to order more. We love to encourage experimentation and fun as you find your way through our menus. And don't forget to check out our seasonal menu sections as well. It is nice to change things every once in a while.
