A Special Valentines Day at Sostanza

Sostanza Bakery and Coffee Shop was2833 born in 2006 in the Old Bakery Building in Lakeside. The locals excitedly came and informed us of days gone by, when one could smell the fresh bread being baked in the early morning.

Although there have been two owners since it started, Sostanza has always lived up to its name. So what does the name mean – direct translation means nourishing, substantial, and abundant. In Italy, food is a celebration of life.

IMG_0504 (1)A beautiful experience of food, of family, friends and warm companionship, laughter and fun. Winnie Sass from Chas Everitt Tokai has been one of our valued regular customers for many years. We have enjoyed many chats with her, ranging from houses for sale to motor bikes and rallies. This year Winnie made our Valentines day so special by sponsoring 50 red and white helium balloons, with her card attached, for our customers to take. What a wonderful atmosphere was added to our décor. Thank you so much Winnie. We are trusting for a double blessing of sales for each balloon.

Lovingly the Management and Staff of Sostanza.
