e will not be selling it in our retail shop with our other Christmas dessert specials.

so be found in our shop.

Will you be making all of your other regular breads and pastries?
While we continue to make most of your favorite pastries and breads, some regular menu items will not be made due to the volume of our holiday production. If there is a particular item you are looking for, please call ahead to inquire about availability.

Will there be a line? How long will the wait be?
As with most major holidays, we anticipate that there will be a line-up starting slightly before we open, particularly on Saturday, 12/24.

The wait time depends on a couple different factors:  how large everyone's orders are and the number of people in line. The closer to the holiday, the larger the orders tend to be. We serve about 35–40 customers per hour, which translates to serving 1 customer about every 1–2 minutes. So if there are 5 customers in front of you, the line will take at least 10 minutes.

Our retail storefront is quite small; we ask that no more than 3 parties be inside the retail space at any given time. This helps us to hear customers' orders and allows everyone to navigate the space with greater ease.
