Making family traditions one bite at a time. We here at Goobers Bakery & Pastry Shoppe believe that service is much more than just saying "HI' or "Thank you". It's a belief that our customers are more than just customers, they are part of the Goobers family. In training we teach our team members that we don't sell just bake goods, we are part of memories that they remember for a lifetime. Memories of cutting their wedding cake, seeing their child on his/her first birthday dig into their birthday cake, or something as simple as eating a donut while spending time with their autistic child. We strive to provide a warm comfortable environment where everyone is welcome and they can add a little sweetness to their life.
