The Bakery Life: Christmas at Flour & Co

13 Dec

I usually have to use my imagination to get into the early December holiday spirit in San Francisco, but this year is different.  I chalk it up to part high 30’s weather (my holidays were always frigid and white growing up in Minnesota), and part bakery.  As for the bakery part, holidays at Flour & Co is a big check mark.  Decorations…check.  Christmas music…check.   The smell of gingerbread and eggnog…check.  Cookie decorating parties…check.  Holiday cheer…triple check.  There’s no getting around it.  A bakery at the holidays is nothing but festive (and yummy, of course).

We’re pretty excited to celebrate our first holiday season with you and lots of delicious treats, so here they are…

christmasIf you want to leave dessert to us, we highly suggest that you pre-order your goodies for pick up the two days before Christmas.  The earlier the better!  While we plan to have desserts on hand these two days for last minute grabs, they may go quickly.

To pre-order, simply stop by, call, or email ( your order by December 19th.  Note: If you leave a message or send an email to place an order, your order will not be complete until you hear back from us, and we take your credit card information.  Another note: These desserts will be available all month long for special order.  We just need 24 hour notice.
