The Mount Bakery Café is excited to bring you your favorite fall specials. We have restocked the with fresh-pressed Bellwood Acres Apple Cider, which can be served hot or cold. This drink has a fresh from the orchard crisp taste, sure to give you that Bellingham-in-Autumn feeling. With the apple cider comes apple galettes, rustic hand pies made with our cream cheese dough. Another pastry favorite is back, the pumpkin scone with maple glaze and pecans. These are a favorite with youngsters, unless there are pumpkin shaped brown sugar shortbread cookies on display. Wouldn’t those be perfect for carving pumpkins with the family?

If you’re in the mood for dessert with friends, you must try a slice of our pumpkin cheesecake. Try pairing it with a pumpkin spice latte or maybe a pumpkin chai. Need something a little stronger? We now carry Anderson Valley Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale. This is a smooth brown ale, with light spice and full body. Our beer specialist Lydia suggests enjoying it with a hot turkey Gouda sandwich or the soup du jour. Coming soon: fall savory vegetable sandwiches.

Dungeness crab eggs Benedict is a great way to start the morning.

Over in Fairhaven the bakers are gearing up for pie season. After winning Best Bakery 2015, we only aim to raise our standards. We put extra time and care into our scratch made all-butter pie crusts, with fresh made fruit or nut filling. You can choose from pumpkin, apple or pecan, just make sure to call the bakery 72 hours in advance to take one home! Same goes with our decadent cheesecakes, which come in vanilla bean, pumpkin or peanut butter pie. If you’re looking for a lighter dessert, go with a caramelized lemon tart or poached pear frangipane, baked with short dough crust and lemon curd or almond frangipane. Of course, we wouldn’t forget our Belgian roots. Belgian chocolate truffle cakes are the perfect flourless option everyone will love, and they come in 6” or 10” sizes, excellent for any gathering. At the bakery, we also offer espresso, soup and quiche. Stop in if you need to fuel up while shopping in fantastic Fairhaven.
