Some of Our Favorites
dark cacao & sea salted caramel cake
our best selling cake - a rich, decadent, moist, super dark chocolate cake, slathered with our signature grass-fed butter buttercream thats been folded with our signature in-house sea salted caramel sauce, topped with more of that sea salted caramel sauce goodness, and garnished with a healthy dose of Jacobson flaked sea salt pyramids. perfection.
available in our traditional or sheet cake styles, these decadent indulgences are a dense, fudgey gluten-free and dairy-free dark chocolate goodness, topped with buttercream of choice, sauce of choice, and toppings of choice.
signature chocolate chunk cookies
our best selling cookie - a healthy dose of only the best grass-fed butter, along with a blend of local and organic sugars including muscovado, mixed with local, pastured eggs, the highest strain of vanilla extract and chopped organic 66% dark chocolate, these cookies lend to the best chocolate chunk you’ve likely ever eaten.
an Italian-style brioche doughnut, similar to malasadas (Hawaii), paczki (Poland) and the likes, the bomboloni is a fluffy, yeast-risen, grass-fed butter-based brioche doughnut that is fried, rolled in organic cane sugar, and filled with your filling of choice, included but not limited to curds (our favorites are lemon or passionfruit), custards (our favorites are salted honey raspberry or sea salted caramel), puddings, jams and preserves, or whipped cream cheese frosting (like in our cinnamon roll bomboloni). or, go savory with something like our everything bagel - instead of being rolled in sugar, it is rolled in a blend of poppy, white sesame, and black sesame seeds, mixed with garlic, onion and salt, then filled with whipped herbed cream cheese.
need we say more?
American-style scones just aren’t our jam (no pun intended). we tend to enjoy the moist, finer crumb of European-style scones, so that’s how Lauren started her original recipe. try any one of our seasonal or regular flavors, savory or sweet. our best selling savory is caramelized local organic red onions, asiago, and fresh chopped local organic dill. our best selling sweet is ever-changing, but our local organic wild lavender and organic earl gray is a pretty consistent favorite.
madagascar bourbon vanilla bean cake
our version of the traditional American white cake, or wedding cake. a fine but dense and moist crumb, speckled with the highest quality strain of vanilla bean paste. we use a rich, thick, local grass-fed buttermilk, accompanied by rich, grass-fed butter, and local pastured egg whites, our signature vanilla will change your mind about boring old white cake.
one of our best selling items, our paleo (gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free and refined sugar-free) pumpkin bread is a healthy, nutritious and satisfying breakfast bread, with an aromatic organic blend of Korintje cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves compliments organic roasted and pureed pumpkin, and is garnished with organic pumpkin seeds.
salted chocolate chunk cookies
the allergen friendly cookie winning over those without allergies - our salted chocolate chunk cookies are gluten-free and vegan, meaning no dairy and no eggs either. a special blend of sugars, ancient grains, organic oil, the highest strain of vanilla bean paste, and topped with a healthy dose of Jacobson flaked sea salt pyramids, the nutty flavor of this cookie (that is nut-free), will stop you in your tracks.
heirloom carrot cake
our second best selling cake - an heirloom by way of two definitions. an heirloom American cake, one of the ones all of our grandmas had in their repertoire. an heirloom variety of organic rainbow carrots are the only ones we use in our original carrot cake. studded with ground organic walnuts, and aromatized with a blend of organic spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves - as well as a dose of the highest quality strain of vanilla extract, our carrot cake is a stunner, in its simplest form.
ginger molasses & vanilla bean cream cheese sandwich cookies
soft, chewy, aromatic, almost-spicy ginger molasses cookies that have been rolled in organic cane sugar, sandwiched together with a vanilla bean cream cheese frosting. we jokingly call them our crack cookies.
we are known for our pie dough. it didn’t used to be that way, but Lauren has really honed in on her pie dough, perfecting her recipe to a nearly-laminated style flaky, all grass-fed butter crust. fill that beauty in with a savory filling, such as our blend of local organic leeks, shallots, diced pancetta, gruyere, and a bit of salt and pepper, and call it a meal.
