Sweet Indulgence Cafe Opening in Bethlehem April 1st

by theelvee_w2oe3m

 Sweet Indulgence Café, a new wine bar and restaurant, is set to open on April 1st at 216 E Broad St in Bethlehem.  The owners, Christina Margies and Rick Jefferson, said the two have been renovating the space since last May.  Chef Karen Whilt, a NY-based restaurateur with experience opening 17 restaurants and 35 years of culinary experience, will oversee the first weeks of the restaurant.  Menu items (subject to change prior to the opening) include small plates (guacamole salad, cheese platter, stuffed mushrooms, serrano ham and Manchego croquettes with romesco sauce, asparagus ham crepes, and empanadas, among other items), soups, quiche, specialty sandwiches, and desserts.

The establishment will be open from 11am to 2am, with the kitchen serving the full menu until 10pm and a bar menu available until closing.  Margies previously owned a chocolate shop, Sweet Indulgence by Christina, on Bethlehem’s south side.  She will be creating a variety of cakes and desserts for the establishment available for dine-in or take-out.  The restaurant will also feature specialty drinks with infused ingredients, craft beer, and of course, a full wine list.  A VIP area, featuring a couches and a private serving area, will be available to rent out.

The place is very nicely done. I find it to be nicer than any place in downtown Bethlehem. Quite charming, warm and welcoming with Boston prices. This is in a off beaten path and should be in a business district. The outside façade Looks like a flop house, there is no parking, at night it is dark and perhaps an untrusting alley way. literally creepy. The Café serves bottle beer and expensive cocktails!, The menu is appetizers very expensive and nothing WOWING! with extremely small portions and the food is really not great . We have been there three times to try different apps. and there was nothing appealing at all. However, My friend had there desserts and just loved what she had but, again Boston prices. They do not have entrées except on the weekend which is not bringing me back ever. The staff have know clue what is going on and they are not on the same page. If they want to survive they need to relocate with there mission. or change the menu for local luncheon s that have a great appeal with a affordable price. You have potential but need to rethink your mission, prices and menu. Good Luck to all!!
