VACATION!

It’s that time of year again – Pint Size vacation!  We’ve worked our little fingers to the bone & can’t wait to take a break to recoup & recharge the batteries.  Wishing you the merriest of New Year’s.

We are closed Sunday 12/31/17 thru Tuesday 1/9/18.

Reopening Wednesday 1/10/18…which is the perfect day to break your resolutions.

Pint Size moving on up to bigger things!

Have you heard the news? Pint Size is going to be moving to a new location this Spring to a bigger location!  There’s going to be a little elbow room for us in the kitchen and for you too.  There will be space to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee with our sweet treats.  But, most importantly, we will have more room in the kitchen to take that special cake order that we so often have to turn down.  It’s been a long process to find the perfect spot in Lindenwood Park, but it was so important to us to stay in the neighborhood.

We will always be a small batch bakery…making things by hand and baking fresh daily is a huge part of who we are & that will never change.

Thank you to all the customers that have supported us over the past 4 years…we can’t wait to show you what we have in store for big Pint Size!  And NO, we are not going to change the name to Quart Size Bakery :)

May Day – May Day – May Day

May 1st it is – do or die!

There are so many little details to take care of…o many, in fact, that I am sure some will get forgotten, pushed aside or just given up altogether in this last push to get open.

So be forgiving our first few days and weeks and we promise to get better.

As if we didn’t have enough on our plate – we signed up for a really cool local festival of beer, pigs, coffee, and sweets at the Civil Life on May 6th. Tickets are available around town and at the bakery – $40 cash. Details at the link below.

Looking Good Ain’t She?

Our most awesome landlords (the owners of Pietro’s) had our building all beautied up and painted with accents of our now signature teal (Stiletto it’s called;)

The bowling alley lane countertop is done and is amazing – thank you super husband Matt!

The ovens have arrived and just, just barely fit.

Now for the electricity – which as of today is out of commission.

So…another hurdle to overcome – but the great news is we should have our occupancy permit this week. We met with our Health Dept inspector and she was thrilled at all the hardwork (and cleaning) that we have been doing. We are hopeful that the business license should be forthcoming tout suite.

PS. The lil duckie pic is just for fun – our farm fresh egg supplier (Harr Family Farms @ Soulard Market) has baby ducklings, Rhode Island Red chicks & Araucana chicks for sale right now for Easter. We wish we had time to start a tiny hen house in the backyard!
