Baker's Half Dozen for Greensboro, NC
There are several Baker Roofing employees who have crowned Maxie B’s the best cake they have ever tasted. The cakes are always fresh, perfectly moist, and topped with creamy icing. If you are looking for a small treat not to be shared, many of their delicious cake flavors are available as cupcakes. If you stop by the shop when it’s busy there may be a line, but we promise it is worth the wait.
- Catherine’s Choice: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip
- Ricky’s Favorite: Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake
Looking for something refreshing after being out in the North Carolina heat? We recommend the Juice Shop in Greensboro. Anytime our photography team visits Greensboro, stopping at the Juice Shop for a Guava Gulp and a Polar Peach is inevitable. The smoothies are made with fresh fruit, and frozen yogurt or sherbet. Any Wake students reading? The Juice Shop has a second location in Winston Salem!
- Alex’s Go-to: Guava Gulp
- Tilson’s Favorite: Polar Peach
Hops is well known as one of the best burger spots in North Carolina. The burgers are made with certified angus beef and locally grown ingredients. If you are interested in a non-burger option, there are plenty of tasty salad and sandwich choices. One of our team members, Cole, shared his go-to order below. Share your order with us in the comments below!
- College Hill Blues Burger
- Truffle Oil & Parmesan Fries
This coffee shop is known for the delicious Black & White Coffee that is serves as well as its warm atmosphere and community involvement. Union Coffee Co chooses to only work with vendors that are local, or “give-back brands.” Baker Roofing has always aimed to be a company that is involved and supportive of our community, and we love supporting other companies doing the same. Next time you’re in the 336, stop by for a latte and a friendly smile.
Our next recommendation is a great summer activity to do as a family. The Greensboro Science Center combines the enjoyment of an aquarium, museum and zoo. If it is a rainy day, the indoor aquarium is the perfect stop to see the tropical fish and even touch a stingray! Many of our Team Baker families recommend the treetop adventure park for daring children and adults.
Who can resist a day of shopping with friends and family? The Friendly Center has enough shopping and dining choices to please any crowd. Check out their website before you go to see what deals your favorite stores are offering!
