Midwest Living Review
A chocolate-lover's dream come true, this combination candy store, coffeehouse and art gallery in the Hell's Half Mile section of downtown Bay City offers a comfortable spot to sip a cappuccino, nibble a European-style pastry and enjoy the changing art exhibits that adorn the walls. Attractively decorated in warm oranges and browns, the Sweet Boutique exudes an inviting, hip vibe where you'll want to linger long after your coffee is gone. Once a year, the Sweet Boutique joins B.A.R.T.S. Brew Pub to present a beer and chocolate tasting event, pairing six chocolates with six beers. We were assured it tastes better than it sounds and sells out quickly. Should you miss the festivities, however, you can easily purchase your chocolates at the boutique and cross the river to B.A.R.T.S. in the Midland Street Historic District to create your own beer and chocolate pairings.
