Sift bakery plans major expansion in Mystic
14 Jan 2019
Adam Young, whose Sift Bake Shop has become a tourist destination since he won Food Network's "Best Baker in America" title last year, is planning to sweeten his surroundings by this spring as he quadruples the size of his building in downtown and adds 160 seats inside and outside.
Young, who is expected to close on the purchase of the Water Street building where Sift is located later this month, said this week that he has completed nearly all the approvals required to move ahead with the project, which should start within two weeks. Only a site plan approval by the Historic District Commission awaits.
