Constantly Evolving

But always delicious

Pickwick & Cherry is the latest evolution in a decade of deliciousness. We started out in 2010, selling bread and cookies in front of the YMCA, at local stores, and through CSAs, baking in the middle of the night at a local Italian restaurant. A year or so later, we joined the farmers market as KatieMade and spent several years there. During that time, we relocated to our very own bakery, in the back of the big white building at 607 S. Pickwick. 

In July of 2014, a reporter called us and asked if we offered bread baking classes, because she wanted to take one and write about it. We said “yes, of course, when would you like to come?” and that’s how our wildly-popular baking classes were born. 

2015 was our first year shipping out hundreds of Christmas gift baskets for local clients, a tradition we’ve come to love. Seven years later, we’ve got baskets down to a science, and elevated them to an art form. 

In early 2016, we embarked on a collaboration with a local butcher to create Butcher Plus Baker, but the butcher bailed and the baked goods were the bingo anyway, so we evolved again into B+B Boulangerie, an eclectic, almost-secret retail bakery. 

In 2017(ish?), we added date night cooking dinners to our already voluminous roster of culinary classes and experiences, with the intent that we’d do one a month. Hilarious. Try “every Friday and Saturday night” instead. 

In 2022, we added cheesemaker, gardener, and traveler Ryan Mihalik to our teaching roster, who has brought his knowledge, skills, and charm to a whole new range of classes and experiences, ranging from cheese and yogurt making to fermentation to a variety of Date Night Cooking Dinners. 

In 2023, we expanded our event offerings even further, adding brunches to the lineup, and in 2024, we upgraded our outdoor patio with local Phenix Marble and a lovely gazebo for a charming most-weather dining experience! We’re always growing and changing, and we can’t wait for you to be a part of what’s next!
