A new bakery and internet cafe is set to open on Springfield Avenue on Saturday. Called 'The Rack Cafe and Chill Spot', it will serve soups, sandwiches, panini, coffee, and various baked goods. Owner Omosede Ayinde says she decided to open a cafe on Springfield Avenue because she "likes the area" and that fact that it is convenient to public transportation. 

"We found a location that is perfect for what we're looking to do", said Ayinde. "There's nothing much like our cafe in that neighborhood".  

The Rack will hold a grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting with Maplewood Mayor Vic DeLuca and other township officials on Saturday, April 5th at 10:00am. From 10:00pm to 1:00pm, everything on the menu will be 10% off. There will be a free cookie giveaway for children while supplies last, and free samples of most baked goods.

The Rack is located at 1844 Springfield Avenue in Maplewood between Oberlin and Yale Streets.
