Sweet Savour Bakery Keeps It Simple

By Jake Levin

Lisa Estes is more than just your average bakery owner.

Chances are that if you've ever been to Sweet Savour Bakery in Fort Worth, Texas, you've sampled a recipe that Estes has perfected herself over the years. Everything sold at the bakery is tested by family and friends, with a preference always given to fewer, simpler and superior ingredients.

"Our artisan scones have a remarkable texture and are handcrafted in small batches with care by me, from mostly organic and/or exceptional artisan ingredients, to please even the most discerning palate," Estes said of the scones at Sweet Savour Bakery, for which the business is most well-known. "We don't keep anything in stock, each batch is hand-crafted to order. Most of our artisan, specialty scones can also be crafted gluten free at your request."

Sweet Savour Bakery has been open in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for eight years now, but Estes has been tinkering with the perfection of her craft for over two decades.

When it comes to making great desserts, Estes said that precision and accuracy are the most important qualities that can deliver a consistently delicious product. Ingredients cannot be compromised, either, especially not at Sweet Savour Bakery. Estes said that in the past, she's had to refuse baking requests that would have required her to lower the standards the bakery has set for quality ingredients in order to meet a lower price point.

"I love what we do," Estes said. "We bake for you with the same attention to quality and your satisfaction as when we are baking for our own family. It is a great investment of our time and resources and we prepare and package, with respect to the fact that by investing in our services you are entrusting us to deliver a quality pastry."

Estes added that the patrons of Sweet Savour Bakery are an extension of her own home and family, and she always enjoys when customers share the delicious scones with their friends and families as gifts or bring them for special events.
