First Shift

Matt called me when he got to the bakery this morning …help was needed!

For about 10 seconds I groaned at the thought of being jolted from bed…

And then I was racing downhill on my bike (awesome) and then I was greeted by my lovely friends (“employees” just doesn’t do them justice)

And then I got to choose from this scrumptious breakfast buffet for my morning meal!

Complete with unlimited coffee :mrgreen:

I got to say “GOOD MORNING!!” to everyone who walked in the door, watching them savor each crumb.

For breakfast I sampled our selection and paired a few pieces of our sweets with a yogurt I brought from home. Tasty!!

And drank too much coffee – wheeeee!

‘Twas a pretty fun morning indeed!

That looks like a spread I would have given up an hour or 2 of sleep for! Looks fab!

Looks like a tasty spread! I have a love-hate relationship with that over-caffinated “high.” :)

I wouldn’t mind waking up early either if I got to choose from the awesome sweets buffet for breakfast! :) Yum!

Enjoying my morning coffee…could do with one of your sweet treats to go with it! It’s donut making day at my household…my son has waited all week…time to get busy!

Seems like you have a really fun work environment at your bakery.

Sounds like a pretty awesome morning to me!

Sounds like a lovely morning! Your bakery always looks so friendly and inviting. Those goodies look delicious. Too bad I live in a small town in Missouri…I’m too far away to enjoy them. :(

I would agree, getting jolted from bed when you’re not ready wouldn’t be the way I would wanna start my morning… BUT like you said, some yummy bakery treats, coffee, and greeting people would most definitely make up for it!

I’m pretty sure you have an awesome life :) Do you give samples everyday or just special occasions?

11 KathEats November 12, 2011 at 2:42 pm

Everyday! It’s our signature

12 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen November 12, 2011 at 10:32 am

Not a bad place to have to spend a Saturday morning ;)

13 Amelia November 12, 2011 at 10:39 am

In my mind, you chose the perfect breakfast!

14 Chris November 12, 2011 at 10:53 am

Oh yum, what is that “streusally” looking muffin on top?

15 KathEats November 12, 2011 at 2:43 pm

Apple Streusel!!! It’s incredible.

16 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count November 12, 2011 at 10:53 am

I do believe I’d be in trouble being around all of those sweets and breads all the time. It’s the smell that always gets me! Have a good weekend!

If I ate breakfasts like you did, I would totally have a sugar high and crash every morning!!

18 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats November 12, 2011 at 11:01 am

siggi’s is so good!!! and what a good place to have to go early in the morning!

19 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat November 12, 2011 at 11:02 am

I wouldn’t mind being called into work on the weekends either if it meant saying hi to customers and digging into fresh baked goods! Hope you have a great Saturday!

I would plan a vacay to Virginia just to nosh on that spread – looks amazing!

21 Hillary November 12, 2011 at 11:12 am

If I was greeted with a breakfast buffet such as that one, I would be in serious, serious (but delicious) trouble!

How do you work there and not devour every single thing within reach???? It all looks amazing.

Um, I do :mrgreen:

what an amazing built in breakfast. i am so impressed by the self control you exert around these amazing goodies :)

Reply

30 KathEats November 12, 2011 at 2:43 pm

Oh gosh I have zero self control!!

Reply

31 Emily @ The Divine Carrot November 12, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Lucky you! That looks great!! I would NOT have the self control to work in a bakery…

Reply

32 KathEats November 12, 2011 at 2:43 pm

Unfortunately, neither do I!

Haha sounds like a great morning :)

You need it is going to be a fun day when you are called into work. Being busy in a bakery is a lot better then being slow. The morning spread is not a bad deal either. :)

Mmmmmm so much tasty looking food. I would work at a bakery just for access to all that!

Reply

43 JosieT November 12, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Does GH serve espresso drinks too or just coffee?

Reply

44 KathEats November 12, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Just coffee

Reply

45 jojo November 12, 2011 at 5:32 pm

I guess the downside is having to get out of bed, but the upside it that you get to taste so many delicious baked goods!! Seriously, everything looks amazing.
I loved that you brought your own yogurt, adding some more nutritional values :)

Reply

46 robin November 12, 2011 at 5:54 pm

47 Shell November 12, 2011 at 5:57 pm

Wow you have amazing will power girl, so many yummy treats!! Just curious so you keep all the stock on the front or are they in like a display case thing so they are covered

Reply

48 KathEats November 12, 2011 at 10:24 pm

They are covered by a glass sneeze guard, but they are out on display.

49 Katrina November 14, 2011 at 12:51 pm

I wish I had a sneeze guard. :(

Oh, thanks for the heads up on google “puddin pie” (Nov 14th) because I’m the queen of useless trivia and I was about to check it out.

Ah, the early shift. Did it for five years…can still pull it off in a pinch but not so fond of rousing so early anymore! Love to see your bakery from afar! :)
