Breakfast Pastries


The selection of Breakfast Pastries varies daily.

Made in house from scratch, daily, with pure butter.

Sold individually or at a discount by the dozen.  Please call by noon the day before if you’d like more than one dozen. (For a Tuesday order, call by Thursday)

The breakfast pastries tend to sell out quickly. You can call to have us set aside your order for later pickup. (except for Christmas season)
