New Bakery Expected Soon in River Vale

Sister and brother team Despina and Michael began their wholesale and retail bakery back in 2015.

They started in a shared commercial kitchen space and built a wholesale business by providing weekly desserts to several coffee shops, caterers, & restaurants in the Bergen County/Tri-State area. Then they launched their online retail shop, which flourished during the pandemic selling dessert bar (ie brownies, blondies) gift boxes – last year they upgraded to their own private kitchen and retail storefront.

Baking has been Despina’s favorite hobby and passion since she was very young. After graduating from Fordham Business School, she worked in the corporate world for several years and continued baking in her free time. a self-taught pastry chef , she decided to follow her passion with the support of her family.


They’ve been building out our new space in River Vale since last May and are in the final stages.

Once complete, the bakery will offer treats such as brownies, crumb cakes, dessert bars, cookies, cheesecakes, layer & specialty cakes, breads, and more. They use all classic bakery ingredients like real butter, eggs, and cream.

They focus on “creamy light textures with depth of flavor”, with most items in display cases and some will also come individually-packaged.

No specifics yet on hours but the takeout only-spot is close, they hope to open the retail storefront later this month
