|Babycakes in downtown Marquette serves tea and scones|
This past weekend, we headed over the Mighty Mac to Marquette to see the dog sled races, better known as the UP 200. With our extended family, aka the LP 9, we joined the crowds on Washington Street to witness the mushers and their eager pups start the upper peninsula's version of the Iditarod.
But, that was not the only exciting thing we experienced on Marquette's main street. A cup of hot tea and fresh baked scones were waiting for us at Babycakes Muffin Company.

Babycakes serves up coffee and tea with a variety of muffins, scones and light lunch fare. Friday night the venue extended their hours and offered guests a place to warm up and refresh while remaining in the center of the action.

We sampled a few teas (Earl Grey and an herbal mango) and both were tasty. They offer sweet and savory scones and we chose the former, a delicious raspberry treat served up in a generous portion.

The atmosphere is casual and friendly and a great place to hang with friends, study, or watch a team of eager dogs pull their musher on a sled.
|Generous servings! Raspberry scone was the day's sweet choice.|
Although the UP 200 comes only once a year, Babycakes is open all four seasons. When in the Marquette area, a stop at Babycakes will refresh any time of year.
