our pastry chef
meet Michelle, a small-town island girl born and raised in morell, Prince Edward Island. she moved to halifax after leaving her master’s studies in pei to pursue a Master’s degree in Sciences, but soon discovered that her true passion lay in baking. Michelle had been an avid baker since childhood, often found side by side with her mother in the kitchen baking delicious family recipes. Michelle has been in the service industry since she was 16.
After loving the reaction she would receive when baking treats for friends, she opened a small booth at the seaport market and started selling her pastries and sandwiches there, quickly developing a cult-like following. Despite not having any professional training, Michelle’s perfectionist approach and natural talents have combined to create some of the most incredible pastries you will ever have.
her dedication to her craft is unwavering, as she would some days work for 24 hours straight to fulfill orders. Michelle’s dream of opening a restaurant was thought to be a far-off, but it only took a matter of years for her to achieve it. Co-owners Michelle and Jenna are taking Halifax by storm with the incredible food and drinks at bliss caffeine bar.more about the owners
