The Essential Baking Café

Our inviting cafés are great places to meet friends, have casual business meetings or just relax with a latte and a hand-crafted pastry. True to the founding principles of our bakery, our cafés use fresh, organic and natural ingredients and make everything from scratch. We offer our fresh-baked breads, pastries, crackers and desserts as well as Breakfast and Lunch menus that change to highlight the seasons. We choose locally produced ingredients whenever possible. We serve fair-trade Victrola coffee, teas, natural juices, sodas; and beer and wine at most locations.

Catering services are available for your next event or luncheon, and we always accept advance orders for special occasions. Our very own Baker’s Blend coffee beans, made for us by Victrola Coffee, are also available to enjoy at home. Each month our cafe walls are adorned with works by local artists.

We invite you to take a seat at our table, nourish your body and join in our community of good food and good people.
