Thank you to our friends at Bluebird Grain Farms in Winthop, WA for featuring the bakery in your monthly blog. Read the full write-up below on Bluebird’s website, where you can also shop online for their delicious whole grain products!
We love fall here at the bakery. As things slow down around town, we take the time to enjoy the beautiful fall colors, chat a bit more with our loyal patrons, and work on new product ideas utilizing the bounty fall brings. Pumpkin has made a comeback in a big way in bread, muffins, scones, and tarts. Locally grown apples and pears are now regularly featured in our pastries as well. Yum!
And, of course, fall also means that soup season is back! Each day we made a delicious soup from scratch and serve it with our freshly baked bread. Or, pair your soup with a sandwich or savory roll for an extra hearty meal.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
It’s been a busy Spring at the bakery and for that we thank our valued customers! The bakery is now open 7 days a week though our busy season. We will also increase our hours open each day once school is out, but for now you can rest assured we will be there at 7 am each day!
Here’s to Spring! Our whole grain salads are back for the season along with some delicious new lunch items, such as our fresh mozzarella and tomato sandwich on house-made ciabatta. Lunch specials such as these are super easy to grab and go for a picnic in the sun!
Hey there bakery fans, we are taking a short seasonal closure until Wednesday, March 9th. During this break of just over 2 weeks we will deep clean the bakery, try a few new recipes, seek out inspiration, and get a little R & R while we can.
On our recent trip to Los Angeles, we had a blast at the 2nd Annual LA Cookie Con and Sweets Show. We tried tons of delicious samples, participated in baking demos, and saw lots of interesting products and ideas. We will apply what we learned at the show and other eateries in Los Angeles to continue to bring our customers the best!
Wow, wow, wow. The bakery had a very busy summer season this year and it was wonderful to re-connect with many returning seasonal customers! We truly appreciate the support from fellow lovers of Lake Chelan, and thank all the visitors who continue to come enjoy our town following this summer’s wildfires.
The bakery was planning our 2-year anniversary celebration for Saturday, August 15th. In the dark early morning of the 14th as we were baking for the day, we thought we heard thunder. Within a few minutes a very intense lightning storm swept through the town, bringing lots of thunder and lightning but only a sprinkle of rain. In the dark it was easy to spot the four fires ignited by lightning on the Chelan Butte. After a call to 911 to report the fires, we stayed open all day cautiously watching them spread. When an erratic windstorm came through in the afternoon the fire changed and grew exponentially, threatening homes and neighborhoods. The remainder of the day was a series of frightening events – homes lost, people evacuated, power outtages, etc. Needless to say, our anniversary party was cancelled. We had to close shop for a few days until power was restored and re-opened on Tuesday the 18th.
Following the fires, town was very quiet as events and vacations were cancelled due to fire activity or heavy smoke. However, Chelan was bustling again by Labor Day weekend, which was a welcome boost to our town’s economy. Fall is going to be an excellent time to visit Lake Chelan, so we look forward to seeing you soon!
Recently we were talking in the kitchen about new ideas for a flavored sourdough bread to add to our Tuesday schedule. Plenty of yummy ideas were tossed around and then someone said it – Roasted Garlic Sourdough. Just the sound of it made our mouths water! We tried our first batch this week and now we’re hooked! Hope you will be too!
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!
