"It's rare you find a neighborhood spot where you feel like family. The staff is friendly, weird, and oddly knowledgeable in all things cup and cake."

(it's true, we are.)
JAXOur fearless leader is a Gryffindor who loves dogs, cardamom, & their grandma's horchata. When they're not working, they're probably still working, because #smallbizlife, but also enjoy riding their motorcycle, gardening, & spending time with their wife. Jax isn't *just* an amazing baker: they also did all the woodworking in the bakery!
GREGOur general manager is kind, funny, & eternally level-headed. Greg is passionate about creating extraordinary food experiences & spearheads our savory program. While some folks are working for the weekend, Greg is working for Mondays, because wrestling! Greg is in his own Hogwarts house, & it is Metal; the mascot is a Chicago Dog.
CAITLINBakery manager Caitlin is a Ravenclaw who bakes exceptionally pretty muffins, always has perfect eyeliner, & is the shop expert on how to make all that gluten-free magic happen. When she's not wrangling the 5am bake, she's gleefully sleeping in, unless she's camping, in which case s'mores are a breakfast food, right?
TaylorAssistant manager Taylor is a jill-of-all-trades: she can draw a cat in your latte foam, forms pastry like a pro, & manages our rotating art program. She enjoys taking glamorous but serious-looking selfies, propagating plants, & writing yelp reviews. Taylor claims to be a Slytherin, but is actually 19% unicorn, so she probably lives in the Dark Forest.
