Artisan Breads

Our breads are made using traditional artisan techniques combined with the best organic ingredients we can find. We start with four basic ingredients; Unbleached Wheat Flour, Water, Sea Salt, and naturally occurring yeast. Thanks to our very own sourdough starters; our dough experiences a long, natural fermentation process to encourage the naturally occurring yeast.

Classical Desserts

Our desserts are a delectable mix of European-style technique and the highest quality, all natural, Pacific Northwest ingredients available. Everything is made in small batches entirely from scratch to create edible works of art that can be enjoyed for celebrations big and small.
