People often acquire a taste for the sweeter things in life during childhood, as evidenced by the tendency for most nursery schools to play lots of U2. But some of those people go on to open sweets businesses, like the gal behind Karamela, whose family ran several suburban restaurants that inspired her to channel her sweet tooth into a Euro-style bakery and cafe sporting a 360-degree counter stocked with treats, and surrounded by amber walls sporting comically oversized silverware.
