Walk into the small space in front of Catery On Broad in TenEleven Galleria and you may well be greeted by the Mona Lisa, impishly suggesting you’re about to find out why she’s smiling. The reason is Isom’s Delights, a small but bustling bake shop specializing in such made-from-scratch treats as cakes, pies and especially cookies. Owner/operator Lori Starnes Isom, who has skillfully rendered a likeness of the Mona Lisa on a chalkboard behind the counter, is currently feeding her muses -- as a baker who specializes in cookies and as an artist, which she has done in some way, shape or form nearly all of her life.
