CULLMAN, Ala. – The Sweet Life Bakery and Eatery in Jones Chapel opened its doors in October of 2021. The eatery was previously open for breakfast and lunch from 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., and they have recently expanded their hours to include dinner, reopening from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. during the week. On Saturdays, they will only be open 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and will be closed on Sundays. The bakery/ eatery is the only restaurant in the area that offers home-cooked country meals. Owner Rayven Peak lives in Jones Chapel and opened her business there because she noticed a lack of restaurants in the area that were not fast food.

Peak started out making covered strawberries and cupcakes on the side last February. People began asked her if she did birthday cakes, which she did several of, including gluten free options.

Peak said, “I’ve always wanted to own my own restaurant, so I saw this place become available, and I took the opportunity to go for it and open up my own place.”

The lunch special and dinner menu are changed daily, offering various southern-style options with sides like fried okra, Cole slaw, mac & cheese and baked potatoes, while the set breakfast and lunch menu includes cheeseburgers, BLTs, club sandwiches, grilled cheeses and more.

Peak eventually began to test the business waters by opening for dinner. She said, “A lot of people have been wanting me to open up at dinner time, so if I don’t open to try it, I’ll never know.”

For Valentines’ Day, the Sweet Life Bakery offers special chocolate covered strawberries, dipped pretzel rods, cake pops, Oreo balls and fudge. The deadline to order Valentines’ Day decorated goods is February 5. To view the Valentine’s Day desserts, breakfast and lunch menus, visit The Sweet Life Bakery and Eatery’s Facebook page:

Peak is looking into opening a second location, with a buffet-style restaurant. She also recently began offering catering for events like dinner parties, business meetings, baby showers, etc. She will be catering a wedding in October and has catered a few Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas parties.

The Sweet Life Bakery and Eatery is located at 11543-B Hwy 278 W, Cullman, 35057. To place an order, call 256-816-3050.
