Red Dessert Dive & Coffee Shop is a sweet addition to the historic Heights neighborhood, whipping up classic American treats like cupcakes, cookies, whoopie pies, brownies, cakes and more.
Red’s is the creation of owner Jessica Lusk, who first began her baking adventures in her at-home cupcake business, Stella Bakes. The shop is named after her red-headed feisty grandmother’s nickname and is decked out in funky, stylish décor to match – white tile walls, chandeliers and the sound of the Rolling Stones rocking out in the background.
Inside, the dessert display case is lined with goodies prepared by pastry chef Ashley Leonard of Hotel ZaZa. Choose a cream cheese kolache, an M&M cookie baked on top of a chocolate brownie or an oatmeal cardamom cookie, along with a coffee, beer or glass of wine and stay awhile. On your way out, grab a goodie box to go.
