About the Owner
My name is Savannah Tillman and I am an Atlanta, GA native. I grew up there surrounded by lots of family and learned how to show genuine hospitality from my grandmother, Kay Bruce. She and my grandfather hosted countless groups of people, showed incredible love to all who came into their home and it was truly a privilege to watch. That’s when I fell in love with the idea of using food to nurture others and meet their needs. So after high school I went to culinary school in South Carolina where I met my husband, an Oklahoman. After I worked as a wedding caterer in Atlanta for a few years, we got married and I moved out to OK. We both wanted to dig in and make a difference where we lived. I got a wonderful job as the head baker of Pie Junkie where I worked for 3 years, loving every minute of it.
Almost 2 years ago, I got the itch to go for the dream of opening my own shop so we dove into the planning. Many months later, after a rollercoaster of a process, we got our shop finalized and opened on September 14th, 2019.
Our heart behind this labor of love comes from my sweet Aunt Tiffany. I've seen her life and the struggle that comes from having disabilities so making opportunity for people like her was a given.
We have found “our people” here in OKC. Community is vital and we would love to be part of yours!
