The 7th Street Public Market is an open space with vendors, or sometimes labeled as an “urban food destination” located in Uptown Charlotte. After baking in Charlotte for a few years, Cara decided to explore her own options. The original business vision was a food truck, but more of a tiny house on the back of a flatbed trailer. After she realized it was more of a glorified pop-up, (with no kitchen), she decided it was a better business decision to open a counter-service bakery. When the opportunity presented itself, she opened The Gâteau Baking Company.
The Gâteau Baking Company offers baked goods that cater to all types of diets. They truly embrace the entire local movement. She branded the bakery as “allergy-friendly”, but they also offer vegan, gluten friendly, sugar free & dairy free treats. Each baked good is artfully designed with beautiful colors or icing, and will please both your eyes and appetite. The #1 seller is cookies, but they also sell tons of donuts, pop tarts, cinnamon rolls, and cupcakes. She also sells ice-cream from a local creamery, called the Golden Cow Creamery.
