“We opened our doors in September, 1992, a classic mom and pop operation: “mom” (Babette) tended the store and “pop” (Christian) prepared and baked all the breads, croissants, and pastries. Over the years, our business grew the old-fashioned way: by word-of-mouth. We started selling our products to local restaurants, hotels, and coffeehouses, which also increased awareness of our products. To a bystander, it must have been comical watching us try to fit our deliveries into a Camaro! We soon became known as the place to go for freshly-baked bread & gourmet pastries. We’ve always done our best to bake throughout the day. Who can resist bread fresh from the oven on a chilly winter evening or an afternoon treat that’s fresh and not overly sweet?!?!
And now that we’ve expanded both our seating area and our menu, we have even more menu choices for you!! Plenty of homemade soups, a wide variety of quiches, and plenty of meal options from lemon/pepper chicken with grown-up mac & cheese to fish and chips, spaghetti with meat sauce, meatloaf and mashed potatoes, chicken burgers, chipotle pesto pasta, and so much more. Best of all, for those days you don’t want to cook dinner, everything is available to go.
Today we have a staff of nearly 25 including our bakers, pastry chefs, salespeople, and support staff. We are all still devoted to providing our customers with high-quality, fresh products at reasonable prices.
We have an extensive line of breads, breakfast pastries, desserts, cakes, tarts, and made-to-order sandwiches. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and invite you to visit us. We’re pretty sure you won’t leave empty-handed!”
Desserts: Whether you just want a little treat for yourself or you’re having a party, you can’t go wrong with our dessert selection: cookies, individual and multi-serving cakes, mousses, fruit tarts, cheesecake, tiramisu and carrot cake to name a few. Some sizes require advance notice. Please call us for more information. Croissants & Breakfast Pastries: There’s no better way to start your day than with a freshly baked, all-butter, flaky croissant. We have many varieties, plain, sweet, & savory, as well as muffins, turnovers, nut rolls, palmiers & more Breads: What we’re famous for! French bread baked throughout the day, everyday. Authentic sour dough made with no yeast, just an authentic starter and our increasingly popular multigrain available in loaves or sandwich rolls. Sandwiches: What can we say? With nearly 20 sandwiches on our menu, your taste buds will never be bored. We make our sandwiches hot and to-order. Our signature bread, fresh, quality meats & cheeses sliced daily, and freshly-roasted chicken are the basis of our sandwiches’ great taste!
