Sweet: Bakery headed for downtown Chaska will serve pastries and ice cream

Andy Mooney always wanted to work closer to his home in Carver, while maintaining his culinary skills.

His dream will be close to complete this fall, roughly scheduled for October, when his shop Red Bench Bakery is set to open.

Mooney, originally from Woodbury, graduated from a French pastry school in Chicago and has been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years. He plans on selling croissants, danishes, lunch sandwiches, coffee and hopefully in the future ice cream at 500 North Chestnut Street.
