Indulge Wine & Dessert Bar
In July 2018, Indulge Wine & Dessert Bar opened in historic downtown Anacortes. The location is owned and managed by Jesse Sturgeon and Angie Skorick, a brother and sister team. While Sturgeon manages the daily operations, Skorick is never far away—her hair salon, Opulence, is right next store.
It’s no surprise the siblings decided to open a dessert bar—their mother, Phyllis Buzzini, is known in the culinary world for her delicious creations at Alaska Silk Pie Company™.
As you would expect, Buzzini’s sweet treats, paired with an eclectic mix of local and international wines, play a dominant role. However, the menu also features heartier items such as savory flatbread pizzas and charcuterie and cheese boards. Additional drink options include loose-leaf teas, French-press coffee, cider, and beer.
TRULY INDULGENT DESSERTS
“We want people to walk in and feel comfortable,” says Sturgeon. “This is a place to relax and unwind, whether you come in solo or with friends and family. Our motto is ‘Eat, Drink, and Share.’”
Most of the desserts are exclusive, and mainstays include temptations like Uninterrupted Chocolate, Crème Brulee, and Caramel Bourbon Carrot Cake, the latter of which is a recipe handed down from their grandmother. With the change of seasons, new desserts make an appearance; these may include Passionate Strawberry, a Key Lime Tower, or a small chocolate cup filled with Baileys Cream and Eggnog.
Insider tip: If you come with friends, ask for a dessert board and plan to share.
PAINT, SIP, & SPECIAL ORDERS
Open Wednesday through Sunday, Indulge’s bar features cozy inside seating, plus a front and back patio. Every month, they host themed paint nights with Canvasly Chromotized Paint Parties. The evening includes all paint supplies and one beverage.
Happy hour is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily and includes $1 off beer and wine. Desserts ($9 and $3) are all gluten-free and contain natural and wholesome ingredients. To take a specialty 6-inch dessert home, call ahead to place an order. For savory bites, Indulge also offers charcuterie boards, flatbreads, and locally smoked salmon.
