The Artisan Bake Shop Story
"Award Winning Cakes & Desserts with the
Perfect Combination of Style, Flavor & Service"
Originally opened as "The Artisan Kitchen" in 2005, Artisan Bake Shop began as a dream of Meredith Ciaburri-Rousseau for a small boutique style bakery with a focus on fresh, high quality pastries, along with fun (and most importantly delicious) whimsical cakes.
For six years we have been providing SouthCoast MA, Cape Cod, Newport RI, and Bristol, Rhode Island, with cakes, cupcakes, and sweets designed for your event. Our business is one that is small and personal; Meredith and her professional staff of artists, bakers, and cake decorators are available and here to provide you with the perfect combination of style, flavor and service and proud to create each and every pastry from scratch.
