It is with gratitude and a heavy heart that I announce that we have closed our doors permanently.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years. This experience has meant so much to me and I will cherish all the memories of the past 2.5 years.

This little bakery was my dream and I will hold the sweet memories with me forever.

We don’t always get to choose the path that life takes us on, but I am hopeful that there will be new and good things to come out of this.

We created a store on bonfire to order t-shirts if you want a memory of this special place. Order by Feb 9.

If you have an unredeemed gift card, shoot us an email and we’ll transfer it to @seabirdnc when it opens in the spring.

Wear a mask. Love yourself. Love each other. Love, Lydia. ❤️

We are extending our hiatus this week and will be closed this weekend.
We’re taking this time to clear our heads and figure out what our next steps are going to be. We’re taking it week by week for now and will post as soon as we have our re-opening plans in place.

Thank you so much for your support, generosity, and patience as we continue to navigate these wacky times. ❤️

Here we go again....

We were at the ER all night with our baby and a high fever. We think the right thing to do is close down today until we know what it is.

He’s doing much better for those of you that are wondering.

It’s unlikely it’s COVID, but don’t know for sure yet. We don’t want to take any risks infecting anyone.
I hope this doesn’t cause too much inconvenience for anyone and we hope to see you next weekend for our 2nd Birthday! 😲

UPDATE: Thanks so much for all your kind words. COVID test was thankfully negative.

Can you tell me where you source your eggs from? Thank you!
Looking forward to what Lydia does at the The Bellamy Mansion Museum Harvest Dinner! Here is a preview from WWAY TV! https://www.wwaytv3.com/2018/10/26/bellamy-mansion-museum-combines-local-chefs-fall-foods-for-harvest-dinner/
Can't find a place to park!
Really wanted to try this out this morning but.....where does one park??
Made my way out, good to see business is booming as it was crowded when I came by. The chocolate cake slice was yummy :). Will have to come back and try some other things.
I love Love, Lydia. Great new spot! Vegan Zucchini Bread & Iced Chai with OAT milk - yum.
Will you have any late afternoon hours for people that work?
