About the company:
L’acajou Bakery and Café, established in June 2010, first came into being in 2009 at a commercial kitchen located in San Francisco’s SOMA district, where Matthew hand-crafted and then delivered his baked goods to locally-owned cafes. Now firmly rooted in SOMA, L’acajou Bakery and Café continues to pique the interests and appetites of Bay Area residents and supply other coffee houses and eateries in want of a little savory or a little sweet L’aca-lovin’. Matthew’s culinary philosophy, nurtured at the California Culinary Academy, allows the flavors of organic and sustainably-produced ingredients to declare themselves, and brings them together with a sensibility shaped by his ever-present wanderlust, and an array of international influences.
