Companion Bakeshop moved into the vacant spot near Another Bike Shop off Mission. Starting from a simple commercial space that sold their fresh breads at farmers markets, Jeremy and his wife, Erin have now expanded to a shop serving fresh baked goods of all kinds and great coffee. They exclusively serve Lulu’s coffee. Yum! When I first popped in that morning, they had the fresh loaves of dough covered with towel and ready to go into the brick oven. That is what really made me want to go grab my camera. That and their drip coffee. I thought it would be fun to photograph some drip coffee. I love that a beach cruiser was parked out front when I arrived and I was able to get some sun flare shining on their sign. It so encapsulates the sunny Santa Cruz lifestyle. Check out the sweet write up in the Sentinel to learn more and go check out their beautiful fresh new space for yourself!
A new summer project for me is to snap some photos of local things in Santa Cruz. We have SO many amazing ma and pa shops, great resources, colorful characters, and natural beauty in our town of Santa Cruz, California. My goal is to feature some local love. Give a flavor of this town through my eyes.
Up first is the brand new bakery that opened across the street from me. Comapanion Bakery. I pick up my farm share from Free Wheelin’ there every Tuesday and have watched them revamp and open their new shop over the last few weeks, so I stopped in today to meet the owners. More on this sweet spot soon!
