Description: Studious Baker is a company of culinary artisans that relies on common ingredients for inspiration, and distinctive scratch baking. We work with complementing and contrasting flavors, balancing them for both subtle and robust play of flavors. We create original cookies and bars, tea breads, yeasted breakfast rolls, savory wheat breads and laminated doughs; Danish and croissant, scones, doughnuts, muffins, baked breakfast puddings, coffeecakes, pies, cakes, confections, vegan and vegetarian soups, but not necessarily all at the same time, we stagger our pastries as the business grows. Nearly everything we do is hand crafted-like toasting seeds and spices for custom blends and making pastry fillings and confits that meet our standards not found in stores. The unique flavor combinations in our products are paramount, so sugar is not the emphasis. We also continue to create and develop gluten-free pastries, using non-gluten flours emphasizing their unique flavors, textures, and shelf life stability. No starches or fillers are used in our pastries. There's no such thing as a commercial mix. As advocates of organic and local agriculture and business, our goal is to source as much local, regional and/or organic ingredients as possible. We use organic citrus, fresh fruit and dried fruit, whole grains and spices, gluten-free organic whole grain flours; local eggs, local dairy and maple syrup; non-aluminum baking powder, non-GMO pan spray, and unbleached flours to name a few. In the future, as the business grows, we will strive to use more organic ingredients. Because our products have no preservatives, they should be enjoyed promptly, although their shelf life is exceptionally good and long. (Our goods also freeze well for extended use.) Come give us a try!

Had the whole place to ourselves on a Saturday Morning. My husband wasn't a fan of his apple turnover, but those Spelt Pancakes were amazing. With fresh carmelized apples and spices. Wow. Enough to take home and eat tomorrow!

Been back many times. Recently brought in out of area friends. The owners are still super friendly and passionate. We ordered three hot chocolates for sitting in. I promised my friends that this would be one for the best hot chocolates. They were in agreement. The owners offered some additional sides for the hot chocolates. We picked up a few other items, which were all enjoyable. I stand by my statement that this is one of the best hot chocolates I have had in my worldly travels.

Great place on the Main Street to pick up some GF treats - wonderful find. Breads were tasty, and the treats (molasses and orange butter cream cookies) were perfect.

This quiet place is great for anyone sensitive to noise and looking for a healthy breakfast freshly prepared. The gluten free French toast is terrific! Four thick slices of really great bread - you'll not want "regular-ole" wheat based again. Wonderful options for anyone wanting freshly baked gluten free options. Staff is very present and attentive and provides lots of options - e.g. walnuts, fresh blueberries, raisins, brown sugar and milk for oatmeal. Don't forget to take some take-away treats to go!
