It's the time of year we look forward to for at least 11.5 months out of the year, because doughnuts. Duh. These lightly sweetened, yeasted, filled doughnuts are an Eastern European Mardi Gras Tradition, beginning on Fat Thursday, eaten through Mardi Gras (the following Tuesday), before Lenten fasting is to begin on Ash Wednesday.  I don't know about all that fasting stuff, but yes please, bring on the doughnuts!

Since we don't have fryers, ours are a twist on the traditional fried pastries, as we bake them then toss in melted butter and granulated sugar before filling them with one of our 5 mouth-watering custards and jams. 

Be sure to place your orders, as we do sell out very very very quickly and the maximum you can walk-out with if you don't have an order is one dozen, to ensure all of our customers can enjoy this delicious holiday.  We will have regular hours through Sunday, 2/23 and don't forget that we're CLOSED on Monday 2/24 to prep for the big day. Then on Tuesday, 2/25 for Paczki Day, we'll be opening an hour early at 8am, but a line usually forms, so be prepared; we will be! 

Click the button on the right to get your order in now, or call us during our business hours at 234-706-6088 to place your order by phone. 

Orders will be accepted through Sunday, 2/23 for pickups on 2/25.

Cake Tastings & Cake FAQ


No matter your event, we offer a variety of dessert options to suit your needs. To help determine what you'd like, we recommend starting with a Cake Tasting.  Tastings start at $25, and include up to four flavors of cake and buttercream frostings to try, as well as a packet of important information regarding our services, pricing and options for your event. Plus, if you decide to book with us, we deduct your paid $25 tasting fee from your final invoice!
