Lee & Marie's Cakery Company -- a hybrid bakery, restaurant and coffee shop -- opened up a few weeks ago with a perfectly crafted concept. It serves Panther Coffee, sources fresh ingredients from local farmers, and even benefits a great cause. The eatery proudly supports adults with autism spectrum disorder.

It's not surprising, then, that the launch of the bakery was met with an abundance of fanfare.

I visited the café for lunch this week. When I ordered an off-the-menu iced coffee, I received a tall glass adorned with a dainty red and white stripe carton straw. The eager-to-please waitress also brought out a set of syrups to sweeten the cool beverage. Patrons at the bakery/restaurant have a choice when it comes to liquid sweeteners, either granulated or brown sugar-based.

The endearing décor pairs rustic armoires with mismatched cake stands and modest floral arrangements. The wooden tables feature linen-like paper napkins, which are carefully rolled up and sealed with a L&M round sticker.

If it all sounds too charming, it's because that's exactly what Lee & Marie's is. At this new South Pointe café, lunch is all about the carefully orchestrated details -- like special straws, or signature accents.
