Inman Park’s newest bakery isn’t just a place to score sweet slices of lemon pound cake, crumbly Linzer cookies, and savory, eggy scones (try the cheddar and chive). It’s also just plain comfortable, with light streaming onto couches and enough space to do cartwheels between them. Proof doubles as a production kitchen for bakers David Garcia and Abigail Quinn, who also crank out breads and sweets for Decatur’s Cakes & Ale; the restaurant’s cafe next door; and the forthcoming European-inspired Bread & Butterfly, slated to open in late 2015 in Inman Quarter. 100 Hurt Street, proofbakeshop.com
