Rain, rain, here to stay, please bring me a pie today.
Break out those umbrellas, raincoats and blankets, the wet weather is back! Colder days are ideal for hot coffee, freshly baked pastries and comfort food – and Backstage Bakery has the cure for fall and winter blues.
Owned and operated by brothers Alex and Dominic Ihnat, Backstage Bakery & Cafe is the perfect place to stop in on those frosty mornings.

For lunch, Backstage Bakery & Cafe creates made-from-scratch sandwiches, freshly baked bread and hearty pizza all day, every day. Looking for something hot and comforting? There are now a variety of hot soups to choose from, including Italian sausage with potato and kale and hearty sweet potato chili.
Using only locally sourced ingredients, the Ihnat brothers have a pastry case full of goodies to peruse. Family holiday get-together coming up? Alex and Dominic can make any family member the hero of the holiday when they show up with a delicious pie. Lemon meringue, pumpkin, cherry, apple and any other flavor their customers can think up are available.
