Model Answer:
Up and until a couple of years ago, the suburb, in which I currently live now, didn’t have any good bakery shops that would sell good snacks or birthday cake. But, now there are a number of them which compete with each other to offer great quality snacks. Today, I would like to go ahead and talk about one of those bakery places which I visit from time to in order to buy birthday cakes.

The bakery shop, I am talking about, initially started with just selling some regular snacks and ready-made coffee. But, when its popularity started to grow and people started to flock into this store in numbers, they added different kinds of cakes and desserts to their product line as well.
 
By the way, this bakery shop is located about 4 blocks away from where I live, right across a major intersection of our small suburb. Having an area of about 1400 square feet, this shop has some really nice and aesthetic decoration inside, with plants in the pots and plant walls. There are at least a dozen indoor picnic tables in the shop which are nicely sitting at a comfortable distance from each other in order to provide its customers with their fair share of privacy.

All kinds of people, young or old, visit this bakery shop in order to sit and relax for a little over a cup of fresh coffee and some freshly baked snacks. In the last two years, I also have visited this shop at least ten or twelve times, and I have loved this place every time I have visited it.
 
Anyway, I use this shop sometimes, primarily because it has some of the best birthday cakes which don’t only taste awesome but also have some unique design and decoration on them. Besides, the shop’s close proximity to my home makes it rather convenient for me to use it for my needs. Finally, I visit it because the product prices there are reasonably affordable for me.
