We are a full service bakery, including artisan breads, pies, cookies, cakes, party trays and pastries for wholesale and retail customers. The owners, along with their 4 daughters and loyal employees, are dedicated not only to quality and customer service, but to the community as well.

She is known for creating signature breads for the finest restaurants in Charleston. Eileen also bakes all wedding and occasion cakes for our clients.

Lani is the newest decorator at the bakery. She and Hayden have made some amazing sculpted cakes, beautiful wedding cakes and creative special occasion cakes. They use invitations, paper, fabric and many other elements for inspiration. Their creative capabilities have resulted in spectacular cakes!
Eileen’s daughters, Alicia and Elizabeth, lend their talents wherever and whenever they are needed. Their invaluable hard work is essential to the bakery!
Wilson and Tim arrive early each morning to provide the bakery with our fresh baked breads. Wilson has been with the bakery for over 20 years! Tim, Eileen’s cousin, has been with the bakery for over 6 years. Their skilled hands create several kinds of bread and pastries for retail to order and wholesale clients.
