Posted at 8:57 AM, Feb 01, 2020

CLEVELAND — Half Moon Bakery has been a dream in the making for husband-and-wife chefs Gerson Velasquez and Lyz Otero for more than five years.

That dream became reality this January when they opened the doors to their bakery and cafe serving up specialty empanadas and sweet treats.

Watch the video above to see Lyz show Homa Bash some of her favorite offerings -- and how a loan from the Economic Community Development Institute meant for minority and women-owned businesses helped pave the way.

Half Moon Bakery is located at 3460 West 25th St. in Cleveland, across from MetroHealth Medical Center.
