About Sweets

Sweets on Main is a gourmet Bake Shoppe and Dessert Cafe located in the Branford Town Center offering high quality baked goods by day and beautifully plated decadent desserts by night. 

Baked from scratch in small batches, we use the finest quality ingredients to produce desserts that are delicious and memorable.  

Each treat starts from scratch using ingredients of superior quality: locally sourced farm-fresh eggs from Medlyn Farms, fresh local fruit, European butter, Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, a combination of Valrhona and Callebaut Chocolate.  

At Sweets, we are proud to say that every single product is made fresh in our kitchen. Our commitment to you is that everything is baked fresh and crafted with love.  

After all, happiness is homemade.
