Company Mission

To create crave-able treats that bring comfort and happiness to make everyone’s day better than when they first walked through our door.

Signature Products

We have two: The Samoa Cake (inspired by the Girl Scout cookie) with dark sugar chocolate cake, frosted with dulce de leche buttercream, toasted coconut, and topped with chocolate drizzle; and our Olive Ciabatta, using both Picholine and Castelvetrano olives and with a hint of lemon zest for a refreshing finish to a light and crusty loaf.

Secret of Success

Our secret to success lies in hiring and growing our company with amazing staff members within our hard-working, fun-loving culture.  We are dedicated to creating whimsical and crave-able baked goods made with high quality ingredients.

Shop’s Best Feature

Because we initially started out as a wholesale bakery, you can peek through the door to see the action in the production kitchen. All of our treats are baked fresh daily on premises, so you are immediately enveloped in the comforting smell of baked goods when you enter our store.
