little bit of history ….
Born and raised in New Canada, a small town 7 miles out of Fort Kent, Maine on a potato
farm. Cooking and baking were always a enjoyment as my parents fed 8 of us around the table.
Wanting a career after graduation, I applied and worked 30 years in State gov’t. During that time, I
would always talk about fulfilling my dream someday. Elaine’s Basket Café (basket in the name because I
weave and sell baskets in the shop) was created and opened in January of 2007. We went from a
full-service restaurant to now being a breakfast café and retail/wholesale bakery. We now deliver donuts
and pastries to more than 25 locations. One of our future goals is to package and ship our donuts* and
pastries around the world.
