Grassroots Gourmet is a locally owned bakery combining old family recipes with new inspiration. We are a neighborhood bakery making treats that make you feel like home. We offer a more non-traditional approach to weddings- with multiple cakes, cupcake towers, cookie bars, dessert bars, pies and more. We don't make "traditional," tiered wedding cakes or work with fondant or gum paste, but we do strive to craft the perfect desserts for your big day.
You can schedule a tasting or come in and try some cupcakes to get a feel for what we do. There's isn't an up-charge just because you said "wedding". Instead, we offer a little more guidance as well as the option for rental plating and delivery. So, give us a call or send an email firstname.lastname@example.org and let's talk about how to sweeten your special day.

The absolutely, positively best cake I've ever had from a bakery. We had been looking all over for cake for our wedding that would a) actually be delicious, b) not cost a fortune, c) let us mix and match from a great variety of flavors, and d) wouldn't be marked up ridiculously just because we said the cakes were for a wedding. I had been prepared to make my own cake since it seemed impossible to find all of these things. Grassroots Gourmet checked off all these boxes and then some. Not only was Sara incredibly helpful and responsive, but she made the cake choosing process easy and fun. She was so helpful with suggestions on flavors, quantities, and serving. The fact that the cakes are spectacularly good—how often do you find that consistently at any bakery?—were enough to make us jump at the chance to have them at our wedding, but the awesome help from Sara and the incredibly rare and much appreciated no-price-gouging-for-weddings made it all the better. Not only did every guest at the wedding say it was by far the best wedding cake they'd ever had, but because we had a great mix of flavors, we really had an option (and actually more than one option) that everyone loved. As someone who writes about food, runs a food blog, and was raised in a family that takes food super seriously, even as someone who LOVES cake, I'm almost always a little disappointed by cakes in bakeries. Couldn't believe when there were literally no drawbacks to Grassroots Gourmet cakes: they're never dry, always super flavorful, not too sweet, awesome texture. They all taste exactly like what you hope they'll taste: Lemon curd is actually lemony! The chocolate cake is really chocolatey and not too sweet! Salted caramel is actually sweet and salty! And the bourbon buttercream... is amazing. The cakes were also simple and beautiful—no garish decorations that you wouldn't want to eat, just elegant and tasty looking. Can't say enough wonderful things about Sara and Grassroots Gourmet!Sent on 06/22/2016

Grassroots Gourmet baked our wedding cakes and we (and our guests) could not have been happier. We ordered chocolate cake with bourbon buttercream and strawberry cake with cream cheese buttercream for our guests - both were a hit - people made a point to comment on how moist and delicious the cakes were - many admitting to indulging several pieces. For our sweet heart cake, we had vanilla cake with cream cheese buttercream - yum!Sent on 08/19/2015
The owners are super sweet and enthusiastic!

Working with Sara was an absolute breeze. With a menu as extensive as Grassroots Gourmet's, we were initially overwhelmed with the options, but Sara helped us narrow it down to a perfect menu. There was a good variety for plating options and Sara even let us use some of our own pieces. Communication was very easy and she was always available even for the simplest/silliest questions. Arranging a set-up time was simple and Sara rolled with the many last minute updates and changes. There weren't any set-up mishaps and we were blown away with how good the desserts looked and tasted!! Our guests said they've never had such delicious wedding desserts!Sent on 05/27/2015
