Meet the Owners

Ray & Jamie

When ever asked how we manage to work together for so many years and stay in love, we simply say our relationship is a "love story" and in every story there are ups and downs but as long as you have someone to Stand beside you and weather the storm, anything is possible.

Soon after Jamie and Ray graduated from Johnson & Wales in 2009, we began our business journey together. Opening our first small kitchen in Providence, Rhode Island. With very limited space, we were able to provide American Fare style food items such as grilled cheese, gourmet soups, and homemade brownies. Although this was successful, we knew we would need a much larger space to achieve the vision we had in providing  foods we  love and enjoy ourselves. After moving back to Connecticut we found a very nice location in Berlin, Connecticut. Here we were open for 3 very successful years! The space was larger than the first, but still caused difficulties because of rapid growth, and lack of space to expand. The menu offered soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, and specials. The most famous special of them all made the menu after just shy of a year by customer demands! Our Famous Pernil y Arroz con gondulez served with house made plantain chips  garnished with scallions, which soon became the #1 most popular item next to the beLoved cupcakes. After 3 amazing years, we finally closed up in Berlin and started a new chapter Right here in Branford CT!!

We are now proud to announce Love Bakery & Cafe!  Located an eighth of a mile off I-95, stop by and meet the crew. We look forward to seeing you soon!

 

Our Approach

Our goal here at Love Bakery & Cafe is to create a relaxed comfortable atmosphere where everyone can come and enjoy great food, cupcakes, and detail oriented service. At Love Bakery & Cafe we strongly feel that service starts at supporting our local farmers and freshly made bread bakers to produce nothing but the best; as we would want for ourselves. Having an event? Need cakes? cupcakes? or Catered trays of food?. Well.. We definitely understand that when it comes to planning an event it takes a lot of time and effort to make it go flawlessly. Allow us to alleviate this burden for you and feel free to give us a call or shoot us an email to set up a consultation to suit your individual needs.
