Batter Cupcakes opens a brunch Biscuit Bar
AVON — Batter, a Vail Valley-based gourmet cupcake company familiar at farmer’s markets and local coffee shops, is busier than usual right now.
In honor of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, Batter Cupcakes is featuring a pop-up brunch Biscuit Bar. Through Feb. 15, Batter’s doors are open from 11 a.m. — 8 p.m. daily at the company’s new retail location in the Slifer, Smith and Frampton Center in Avon. The Biscuit Bar menu will also be available at the Batter tent during Apres Avon from 2 to 5:30 p.m. daily.
The Biscuit Bar at Batter will feature menu items including locally sourced fried chicken tenders from West Vail’s Yellowbelly, Denver-based Tender Belly bacon and Batter’s scratch-made buttermilk biscuits. Handmade sauces including Sriracha mayo and honey butter will also be available. Only at the retail shop, Batter is offering free coffee with a Biscuit Bar purchase.
The Biscuit Bar at Batter was an idea that came from owner, Liz Rackoff’s southern roots.
“I wanted to combine the comfort of southern goodness with locally-sourced, free-range products,” Rackoff said. “The relationship with Yellowbelly in Vail and Tender Belly in Denver has been the perfect base for this idea to really take off.”
