We truly feel we are returning to our roots with the Chapel Hill Bake Shop. It’s 1,250 square feet of the Guglhupf breads, pastries, desserts and savory baked goods you love and about the size of the retail area in Durham.
Everything is made fresh in our Durham bakery and brought to Chapel Hill throughout the day…like a Carolinas version of Handwerksbäckereien in Germany!
We also carry coffee, tea and espresso drinks, as well as cold beverages and a small selection of grocery items. Treat yourself to a pastry over coffee and grab one of our limited seats inside or on the shopping center’s outdoor patio. We’re a perfect stop for bread and baked goods to take home after shopping at nearby Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods.
Fresh, European-style breads, pastries, desserts and savory baked goods with coffee and choice provisions
Please note that in this first phase of the Bake Shop we will focus on filling our shelves every day with fantastic baked goods for you to pick up and enjoy on a first-come, first-served basis.
In our second phase, we will be accepting pre-orders that are called in or placed in the shop, for a majority of our items. This is also the point at which we are hoping to expand our hours.
For our third phase, we will be offering pre-ordering and online ordering, including personalized birthday cakes and more of our delicate (hard to transport) creations.
We hope you can tell that we are really excited to be opening our first Bake Shop in Chapel Hill. We want to succeed and for us, that means taking the time to plan for a great outcome, and developing workable and sustainable systems for our production staff and the logistics of moving delicate product.
Wedding cake consultations will remain at the Durham location where the pastry team and production bakery is located.
