HUMANS OF TOWN & COUNTRY

We spend 40 minutes every day throughout the year at the shopping center across the street... But do we really know those who serve us our lunch? C Mag takes a closer look at the familiar strangers we see everyday at 11:35 and take a look at what is going on behind the scenes.

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.

“I really like decorating the rosettes, but my favorite one is the Fleur de Sel, the chocolate cupcake with caramel in the center, chocolate ganache, and sprinkled with some sea salt. I like coming in really early in the morning. Usually the earliest shift is around 4 AM, so I have to be out of the house at 4. I’ve been here long enough that I can’t eat the cupcakes at Kara’s…I can’t really have sweets anymore.” -Alex, Kara’s Cupcakes
