There’s something about a fresh muffin or a loaf of bread that evokes a sense of homey comfort. It’s an invitation to take a moment, to sit down and savor instead of rushing off to the next appointment or item on the to-do list. At Hovey & Harrison in Edwards, the comfy chairs and overall vibe is as warm and welcoming as the wide range of fresh baked goods they offer.

“I think this space lends itself to being very comfortable and warm and a place where you come and enjoy the offerings that we provide,” said Gretchen Hovey. “There’s a certain comfort level that baked goods provide.”

A visit to the pastry case contains a level of anticipation as the offerings rotate regularly. However, you can depend on the monkey bread ­— Hovey said it’s probably her top selling pastry.

“We quickly learned there are certain staples that we have to keep on (the menu),” Hovey said. “The monkey bread is one of them.”
