All baked in

After almost four years in business, Dana Peters, owner of The Bakery in Guffey, turned ownership over to Sarah and Kris Wilson Feb. 1.

The new name will be Sarah’s Place at the Bakery, but most things will stay the same.

Peters said it was hard to give up the day-to-day operation of the bakery, which could be very hectic at times, but she has done so for many reasons, she said. Peters said that Sarah and Kris had many plans to expand and improve the bakery.

Sarah’s Place will now be open seven days a week, and there will not be a gift shop in the bakery, just great food.

The grand was Feb. 12 at 8 a.m.

Weekly hours will be Sunday through Wednesday, 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday, 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. There will be special dinners on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Thursday will feature special home-style dinners, Friday will be fish fry dinners and Saturday will continue to feature the around-the-world themed dinners.

Sarah and Kris, who plan on getting married this summer, have over 25 years of restaurant experience between them. Sarah arrived in Guffey in 1996 and Kris is recently here from Cincinnati.

Peters will still be cooking the Saturday night Italian dinners once a month, as well as baking on Wednesday mornings, and will continue having art classes at the bakery.

Sarah’s Place at the Bakery should continue to be a great place for a hearty meal, a sweet treat, a fresh loaf of bread, or just a nice visit in the new cosy nook.
