We all need a little inspiration now and then, and it always seems fitting to welcome new ideas in the spring. A recent trip to a few bakeries in Seattle gave us lots to be inspired by! The weekend was filled with beautiful weather, plentiful pastries, art, family and friends, but never enough time (or belly space) to accommodate all the eating to be done. Life’s rough.
Hi, all! We made it through another winter, and this one was much busier than last! Thanks a ton to the local community and visitors for keeping us busy! We are currently on our annual deep cleaning / spring break. The bakery is closed for just over a month and re-opens on March 25th. We get to work on some new products to introduce this spring, get the kitchen and dining area super clean, and get ourselves in gear for another busy summer. We are continuing to provide some products for our wholesale customers, so if you have a special event and need some treats just leave us a message. We’ll certainly help you out if we can! Thanks again and we’ll see you on March 25th!
The bakery was honored to receive the award for Best New Business 2014 from the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce! The award sure put a pep in our step and we all felt honored to receive such motivating encouragement from our community.
Thank you to the local community and to the many visitors to the area for making this journey so amazing!
Brrrr! On these chilly days it sure is nice to stay warm and cozy at the bakery. We’ve been in the holiday mood lately, stocking the cases with seasonal goodies such as pumpkin pie, fresh pear muffins, pumpkin cheesecake bars, and peppermint brownies.
fresh baked rolls and pumpkin pie!
Please give us a call at 682-BAKE if we can help you with your holiday baking! We have apple, pumpkin, or blueberry pie available to order along with French or Buttermilk Wheat rolls for the holiday table. Other desserts available include our Salted Caramel Pecan Tart or our Gluten-Free Chocolate Torte.
After a busy summer, it’s time for us to slow down a little. We are now on our off-season hours – open Wednesday -through Saturday 7-3 and Sunday 7-2. What a great summer it was!
Now that fall is here, we are starting our homemade soups for lunch on October 1st. Customer favorites such as the Autumn Vegetable soup (pictured) and Creamy Potato soup will be back, along with some new hearty soups we will add to our regular menu. Come enjoy a bowl of soup with a homemade roll for lunch!
WhoooHoooo! The bakery is rockin it 7 days a week all summer long in beautiful Lake Chelan! We are excited to be able to offer our delicious breakfast pastries and artisan breads any day of the week. Come on by and treat yourself and your family to our hand-made goodies and delicious Blue Star coffee! We will see you soon!

Just wanted to share this fun blog post about local folks who make fantastic food and wine in the Lake Chelan valley:
A Visit with Some Local Food & Wine Producers
Lucky to be a part of such a beautiful and abundant place!
Here at the bakery, we are looking forward to our first full summer. We opened doors on August 15th last year – just enough time to give us a taste of the busy season to come once summer hits Chelan. The bakery will open 7 days a week starting in mid-June to serve our summer customers. We can’t wait to see you!
Please keep in mind that we are happy to accommodate special orders. Whether you need a large batch of scones for a brunch or a berry pie to top off a summer BBQ, we can help! Give us a call at least a couple days ahead and we will fit your order into our production schedule. Happy summer!
We are excited to let our customers know that we will re-open the bakery on Wednesday, March 26th. One of our new items to try is the tasty Multigrain Bread pictured here. Our Multigrain features cracked wheat, Bluebird Grain Farms rye and whole wheat flours, oats, sesame seeds, flax seeds, and millet. It’s delicious on sandwiches or as toast!

By the time we decided to take a short break to gear up for a busy spring and summer season, our bakery gained six months of experience under it’s belt. What a ride it’s been! We had a blast trying new recipes to delight our customers – everything from salted caramel custard-filled cream puffs to made-from-scratch soups to warm you up on a chilly day.
Some of our customer favorites include our Blueberry Muffins (made extra special with local Manson-grown blueberries), Almond Bear Claws, gluten-free Granola Bars, and the highly coveted Ham & Cheese Croissant. We also loved crafting delicious pies and other desserts around the holidays, including a dense chocolate torte garnished with crushed candy canes. Customers also chimed in about their favorite breads, such as Rustic Italian and Kalamata Rosemary Sourdough.
While on our temporary break, the bakery is getting a deep clean and our kitchen will be updated with additional ovens and racks that will help us get ready for the busy days to come. Thank you to everyone who has visited us so far, and be sure to check our Facebook page for the most current updates. WE WILL REOPEN THE BAKERY IN LATE MARCH OR AROUND APRIL 1ST, DEPENING ON OUR PROGRESS. SEE YOU THEN!
