A Little About Us...
Here in our small bakery, we perfect our recipes and pastries based on American traditions and our creativity. We make small batches of everything, by hand, from scratch everyday to offer the best of our recipes to our customers. Even though we have our own loyal, local following, everyone is welcome to come and enjoy our Phoenix Bakery experience.

WHY ARE WE CALLED THE PHOENIX?
The legend of the Phoenix from Roman mythology symbolically resonates within our family here at the bakery. For us, the legend is a long time treasured reminder of how wisdom and self-recreation go hand in hand to create a peaceful, balanced, fulfilling, and successful existence. We also joke and say that the good pastries come from the ashes of the burnt ones of the past like a Phoenix that rises from the ashes! – We are known to burn a tray of doughnuts here and there… There are many cultural versions of the legend on line- check them out to see which one you love best!
