The bakery named Cake and the coffee shop called Cool Beanz Espresso Bar are literally two shops in one, so much so that patrons often don't realize they've bought their cupcake or quiche from one business and their coffee from another. Both opened in late March in the storefront on East Main Street that previously housed Sweet Cheeks. It's close to City Hall in the building that also houses the headquarters of Georgia Southern University's City Campus.
