Anisette is an ingredient-driven bakery and coffee market. It is a place for a sweet bite and cup of outstanding coffee or a spot to grab some treats for later. Started in 2016 by Nicole and Jason Evans Groth, it is inspired in part by visits to beautiful Mediterranean sweet shops, an unreasonable obsession with cookies, cakes, sweet little delicacies, and utilizing flavors in a way that makes them all feel things. From the moment you walk through their door, they want you to have an unforgettable, delightful experience that ends with a delectable treat.
The dairy they use is organic and locally sourced whenever possible, and they rely on the bounty of NC produce to drive their menus daily. Anisette feels this attention to well-produced ingredients makes a difference in not just the flavor, but also the feelings associated with their sweets.
