Chef Jordan, the Owner and Executive Chef began baking with her mother and grandmother since she was old enough to hold a whisk and a rolling pin. Everyone knew her grandmother for her famous pies and passed the love of the kitchen on to Jordan. She earned a degree in baking and pastry and moved here in 2013, after working in some Louisville, Kentucky kitchens for a few years.

She originally joined forces with George and Luba Lazi in December 2014 at George Artisan Bakery & Bistro, before developing Craft Bakery. The bakery is named Inweekly’s Best of the Coast for three years running, Best of the Bay in the Pensacola News Journal, and also Restaurant Guru’s recommendation for 2019.

Craft Bakery is known for its bread and pastries with selections like the black garlic sourdough baguette and Kalamata Olive sourdough. They also feature desserts and gelato like Triple Chocolate Mousse Bomb, Mocha Torte, and Panna Cotta. In addition, cupcakes and roulade flavors change daily.

If you are not a sweet tooth, they serve breakfast and coffee every day, including breakfast burritos, pizza, and avocado toast. The Chai spiced granola and yogurt with berries are perfect for healthier fare.

They also specialize in dessert catering and custom cakes, including wedding cakes.

With new café seating, there’s now plenty of comfortable room to meet a friend or have a casual bite before shopping nearby.

Craft Bakery is located at 5555 N. Davis Highway in Pensacola.
