WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WV (LOOTPRESS) – It is not a secret when driving through the town of White Sulphur Springs that the city has sparked and is coming back to life since the devastating flood in 2016.
Announced last week was a new bakery and coffee shop, “Tootsie’s Place,” and the doors will be opening in January of 2021. Owner and Pastry Chef, Kenndey Brooks born in Greenbrier County and graduate from Johnson and Wales University with a bachelor’s degree in Baking and Pastry with Food Service Management. Kenndey calls White Sulphur Springs home, and it was an easy decision to open her doors in the town.
“Tootsie’s Place is named after my Great Grandmother Edna Groves. Growing up, she was known as “Tootsie.” I wanted to honor my great grandmother somehow. I feel that I have her baking gene in me. Baking is something I have always been passionate about. While my meringue pies will never compare to her, I believe I am making her proud.” stated Kennedy.
Locals may remember Kennedy’s Great Grandmother Edna Grove and her restaurant Granny’s House located in Hart’s Run.
Tootsie’s place will have a variety of treats! We will have everything from Muffins, Cinnamon Rolls, Cookies, Cupcakes, Custom Cakes, Pies, and a wide variety of cheesecakes.
In addition, they will have espresso drinks, frozen coffee beverages, and a selection of tea. Anticipated shop hours will be Tuesday – Saturday 6:00 am – 4:00 pm
