Celebrating their grand opening in the former Adobe Wine Deli at St. Philip's Plaza, Abygail's Bakery and Café is a family affair comprised of mother (Suzie Olasin) and daughter (Jaime), who began by selling homemade breads at local farmers' markets before opening their own restaurant. Abygail's, named after Jaime's daughter, is open daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. serving breakfasts (the frittata looked spectacular), sandwiches on freshly made bread, salads, homemade pies and a Dutch baby pancake, at 4280 N. Campbell Ave.; 615-6280.
