About Carrot Tree Kitchens

The story of Carrot Tree is not quite as old as some stories in the Historic Triangle. In 1984, challenged by a restaurant manager to produce a better carrot cake, Debi did so; by calling her grandmother at midnight for the family recipe and shopping and baking till 3 am! She burned up a few home ovens before building her first commercial bakery—-in her home garage! That was 1990. In 1995, she opened Carrot Tree Kitchens on Jamestown Rd., Williamsburg’s only scratch bakery in years. Café operations evolved over time. We opened the Cole Digges House in Historic Yorktown in 2003. Every day, every thing Debi does, she does fresh from scratch. She is one of those few restaurant owners for whom food remains a love, not a business. We are pleased you have become a part of the continuing history of Carrot Tree and the Historic Triangle. To answer your most asked question: Why the name Carrot Tree? She’s famous for Carrot Cake and Debi and Glenn were married under the Great Oak Tree of Basset Hall in Colonial Williamsburg. The very same tree Rockefeller sat under to plan the restoration, a tree thought to be over 400 years old. When time came to name Debi’s business, several ideas were bandied about; ‘Great Oak Bakery’, ‘Oak Tree Bakery’, “White Oak Bakery’, etc. Then Deb’s aunt said, “Too bad there isn’t a carrot tree!” And so it is that we’ve been Carrot Tree ever since.

Thank you Aunt Postie!

They were very friendly and helpful with the cake consultation. They brought out a plate of all different cakes and fillings as well as a book showing different designs that people have done in the past. They delivered the cake and it looked great! We got so many complements on the cake from our wedding guests.

As soon as we got engaged, I knew I wanted a Carrot Tree cake for our wedding cake. The almond cake is AMAZING and we have gotten so many comments on how good it was. They were sometimes a little bit slow to respond to emails, but our finished product was great!

Carrot Tree Kitchens was the perfect place to order my wedding cake from!! We ended up getting a small carrot cake for ourselves and pound cake with lemon filling for the guests. Everyone mentioned how delicious it was and they were super easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this bakery.
