Who is Colleen?
Colleen Thompson found her passion for the culinary arts during her childhood years. Just as many young aspiring kids, she found a passion at an early age learning first-hand in the kitchen of both her mother and grandmothers. Through her restaurant experience, culinary education, and love for entertaining, Colleen started her own business and to this day, her lifelong love for cooking and baking never has never been stronger.
How did it all start? Colleen was asked to create 200 decorated cookies for a charitable event. She did. Guests loved them and people wanted to buy cookies! It was that simple. The company grew from a small operation to a retail bakery to a cafe.
Although Colleen Thompson started the business, she credits success to current and past staff who have made an impact for the company. We love having a strong community within the company, as well as being a part of the St Louis community. The staff takes pride in serving our loyal and new guests top quality coffee, breakfast, lunch, and sweets made from scratch daily with the freshest ingredients available.
Come by, we would love to see you!
