When you walk into The Flour Uprising, the first things you’ll notice are the featured delicatessen sweets, including its popular whoopie pies.
Owners Annette Platt and Linda Spyke opened the bakery a little more than a year ago in the downtown district of Mount Pleasant.
The name fits with the concept that people can really be involved with making healthier choices and that they’re not limited to white or wheat flour. It’s the perfect place to grab a healthy serving of breakfast, brunch, or lunch. It’s a cozy, well lit environment and it even has Internet access.
A visit to The Flour Uprising is an experience that leaves your belly and your wallet just where it should be — far from empty. The bakery treats change regularly and each week seems to offer a new surprise.All good reasons the Under the Radar Michigan TV show recently decided to take a peek into the little bakery.
