Spotlight in the 17th: ESS Bakery Cafe
Located in the heart of Norristown, ESS Bakery Café is a four food concept bakery and café that offers a combination of Colombian, Peruvian, Mexican, and Spanish cuisine, along with traditional American fare and bakery sweets. When COVID-19 hit in 2020, owner Jamie Mellado moved his special events business from New York and landed in the diverse community of Norristown. What was meant to be just a bakery eventually flourished into the beloved bakery and café that sees plenty of customers from the surrounding community every day. Senator Cappelletti stopped by ESS Bakery Café to have a quick chat with Jamie, check out their new seating area, and savor some delicious empanadas!
