Sad News Regarding Coastal Cafe

Hi Everyone,

We have some sad news to report. We received notice today that Coastal Cafe will no longer be doing wholesale accounts, meaning we will no longer be receiving our Saturday deliveries from them. They’ve been with us since pretty much our opening so it will be sad to see them go. If anyone has any recommendations of a local place they would like us to try and reach out to for additional pastries please let us know in the comments and we will do our best to add there stuff.
