Now OPEN!!!....The newest, coolest place for premium made-fresh-daily desserts & premium teas/coffees in downtown Indianapolis!
The story of Frona Mae begins in rural Orange County, Indiana in January, 1901. You see, one hundred years ago, there were no microwave ovens, processed foods or frozen dinners. In rural Indiana, meals were always home-made, proudly and with only the freshest farm ingredients. Desserts were always extra special treats, created and served with love. They often were turned in to beautiful & tasty works of art. Born Frona Mae Kearby and mother to her three grateful children, Joanne, Carl and Randall, “Grannny” (as I lovingly called her) loved to bake for her family. Growing up I had the pleasure to enjoy many years of cutting boards, flour sifters, rolling pins in anticipation of Granny’s tasty treats…her delicious, moist cakes and her hand-written recipes for Midwestern pies.
Today, the tradition lives on at Frona Mae Dessert Café. We bake fresh daily, with Hoosier pride, never using margarine, instead only 100% real butter and other natural ingredients, and we never use artificial trans fats in any of our products.
There is always something special baking at Frona Mae Dessert Café. In fact, we’ve dedicated our hearts and souls to making luscious, eclectic desserts with full flavor, texture and color that both excite and tantalize the senses. Our passion for sweet perfection knows no boundaries, all in the hospitable spirit of Frona Mae.
We at Frona Mae have decided to be the leader in the Premium coffee/tea, gourmet bakery café industry, serving all of vibrant downtown Indianapolis.
Whenever possible, we buy locally and always endeavor to make a positive impact in our local Indianapolis community and our overall environment. We hope to inspire others to join our shared effort to make our world a better place, one cupcake at a time. Life is short, and coffee & desserts indeed open the door of opportunity for everyone to “live a little” and to love a lot.
