Luzara Sweets may be brand new to the Connecticut baking scene, but I can tell that it definitely will hold its’ own. Located on Riverside Drive in Shelton, the bakery opened it’s doors in February 2023, and has a huge menu filled with delicious goodies.
According to an article in the Shelton Herald entitled Milford baker bringing sweet treats to downtown Shelton, the bakery is owned by Milford resident Sarah Luz Laffitte-DePalmer. The article says that she got her degree in Interior Design but made a job switch to baking during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, she occupies the downtown Shelton area, and her storefront is so adorable with it’s pink painted walls, and seating area — perfect for the days when you need to sit down for a peaceful cup of coffee.
The bakery’s menu is really extensive. They offer breakfast treats, such as sandwiches and coffee. But, the one thing that is a must-try is their cupcakes. Luzara offers the classic flavors, such as vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet. However, they also offer some unique flavors, such as red velvet strawberry, chocolate peanut butter, and Samoa. And, their cupcakes are honestly some of the freshest and most delicious that I’ve had in a long time.
In addition to cupcakes, Luzara offers so many other treats, such as cake pops, cookies, cakes to order and more. They also did not forget your best friend, as they also offer dog treats as well.
Overall, Luzara Sweets is worth checking out — especially if you have a sweet tooth like myself. Be sure to check out their Facebook page and their Instagram here.
