It is with gratitude and a heavy heart that I announce that we have closed our doors permanently.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years. This experience has meant so much to me and I will cherish all the memories of the past 2.5 years.

This little bakery was my dream and I will hold the sweet memories with me forever.

We don’t always get to choose the path that life takes us on, but I am hopeful that there will be new and good things to come out of this.

We created a store on bonfire to order t-shirts if you want a memory of this special place. Order by Feb 9.

We are extending our hiatus this week and will be closed this weekend.

Here we go again....

We were at the ER all night with our baby and a high fever. We think the right thing to do is close down today until we know what it is.

He’s doing much better for those of you that are wondering.

It’s unlikely it’s COVID, but don’t know for sure yet. We don’t want to take any risks infecting anyone.
I hope this doesn’t cause too much inconvenience for anyone and we hope to see you next weekend for our 2nd Birthday! 😲

UPDATE: Thanks so much for all your kind words. COVID test was thankfully negative.

One of our employees is not feeling well and out of an abundance of caution we have decided to close today. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

We were planning on taking a break next weekend, and are still planning to do that. We will be back at it the 18th & 19th.
