Freed's Bakery opens tomorrow in Henderson in a new 6,500 sq ft. retail space.

Freed's Bakery is not the first food establishment to relocate to a different part of the Vegas valley. In the last two months, another bakery moved from its store location of 20 plus years to Henderson. That bakery is called Layers and it's new location as a "neighborhood bakery and cafe" is at 665 S. Green Valley Pkwy, Henderson,near the newly opened Target Store.(702)221-CAKE.
Layers is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Greg and Jeanne Forrest. The Forrests have the philosophy that their cakes should be made from scratch, using natural ingredients, no preservatives or trans fats used, and ingredients in their cakes include real butter, heavy cream, flour, sugar, and high quality vanilla and cocoa. They spend the money on the ingredients and make their desserts with love and you do pay for the quality. Layers is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch and the retail bakery.
Henderson is also benefiting from the relocation of The Pasta Shop from the Tropicana area to Horizon Ridge Parkway. The Pasta Shop Ristorante is a new part of the Pasta Shop which has specialized in making fresh pasta for customers including upscale resorts on the Las Vegas Strip for more than two decades.
The Pasta Shop Ristorante is family-owned business of two Alenik brothers. I spoke to David and he explained how happy he and his brother were to be in Henderson. They brought their following with them and their Pasta Shop Ristorante fills up and there's a wait on many nights so the move seems to be going great.
Pasta Shop is #1 Zagat rated for their fresh gourmet Pasta, Chicken, and Seafood dishes. The new location is 2525 W. Horizon Ridge, Henderson, NV 89052 (702) 451-1893. The decor at Pasta Shop Ristorante is the work of another family member, Ann. K. Alenik, so if you like what you see while you dine, the art is for sale right off the walls. http://www.pastashop.com
