Fall is in Full Swing

Fall is known as a season of change, and there is definitely plenty of change in our little bakeshop to go around. Here are some highlights from the last week:

Our Shelves Are Now Stocked with Pantry House

Just in time for all of those cozy family gatherings, we are proudly selling Pantry House mustards, jams, and jellies. Pantry House is a small batch company using locally harvested produce to make delicious products. You might have seen their stand at the Farmer’s Market, now you can find their whole grain beer mustard, pepper jam, pear cardamom jam, and horseradish mustard on our retail shelves. You can find out about this wonderful company here.

It’s Warm Beverage Season!

Perhaps there’s no better way to signify the arrival of fall than with fresh, local, warm cider, or a delicately spiced egg nog. We’re now featuring apple cider from Everett Family Farm, and egg nog served hot or cold! You can now also add egg nog to any of your favorite espresso drinks. Mmmmm!

New Coffee on Tap

Of course, it’s especially pleasant to warm up with a rich cup of coffee. Our Blue Bottle Coffee on tap has recently changed from Three Africans to the Bella Donovan. This blend is an inviting, warm cup of brew, which is a blend of organic and Indonesian coffee beans. From Blue Bottle: “It seems to weather the rigors of the automatic drip machine as well. This is, perhaps, why it’s our most popular blend. It is also on the darker side: nice and thick without being inelegant. Bella stands up to milk or cream well, and is easily enjoyed black.” Come in for a cup, or take a half-pound bag home and prepare it any way you like!

Persimmons in Season

Persimmon Galettes

Most Californians are familiar with the  delectably sweet taste, and sultry texture of a ripe persimmon, but have you had it baked into a galette? Now’s your chance! We’re now featuring Fuyu  persimmons in our fruit galettes. Look for them in our pastry case.

New Apparel, New Online Store!

original

We recently received a shipment of newly redesigned Companion logo T-shirts, hoodies, and tote bags. The T-shirts are now on ultra-soft cotton American Apparel shirts. Our new hoodies are extra warm and soft; perfect for the chilly months to come. Both our T-shirts and hoodies are available in men’s and women sizes, in maroon, navy, and heather gray. Out tote bags feature our logo and come in two sizes: a miniature bag, perfect for carrying out a loaf of bread and some treats, or the larger bag, which is the ideal size for carrying a small load of groceries, a few books, or almost everything a modern mother needs for a day out on the town.

You can purchase these items in our store, or on our recently created Square Up online store located here. Please also browse our available baking and coffee classes listed on our online store as well.

Annie’s First Birthday!

Annie's Birthday

Sunday was Little Annie Rye’s first birthday! She had a blast at her first party, and she thanks everyone for the kind birthday wishes. She’s growing up so fast!

There’s so much more happening in our shop every day! The best way to keep up is by stopping in to say “hello!” We’ll see you there.
