While the city sleeps, dough is on the rise–and so are our students.

Pastry Arts majors begin their day in the early morning hours to bake the freshest bread, croissants, muffins, and danishes to be served in our Pastry Shop. There are cookies to bake, pie crusts to crimp, and baguettes to shape, and our students work under the guidance of Certified Executive Pastry Chefs to make these items to perfection. If you’re looking to buy a specialty cake to celebrate a milestone or just want to indulge your own sweet tooth with an individual French pastry, The Pastry Shop at Walnut Hill College is sure to satisfy!

Enjoy a made-to-order omelet, fruit smoothie, or sandwich during breakfast hours and our delectable pastry selections all day long. A comfortable atmosphere in a quaint setting allows for an enjoyable and relaxing experience.
