Please give us your patience during the reopening process, and respect our staff, who is doing their best to serve you. As you know, it has been a long journey to reopening, and our employees have worked very hard to make it happen. We are all very excited to see you again!

Here’s how carry-out and delivery works:

Cafe Selmarie bakery counter

Online ordering is still the fastest and most convenient! First, select carry-out or delivery. Pick-up is inside the café at the bakery counter. And if you select “curbside pickup” when ordering carry-out, just call when you arrive and we’ll run it out to you!

Masks are recommended but not required inside the cafe. If you would prefer to remain outside, give us a call to place your order and we’ll bring it out to you.

Delivery is available all day, and it can be ordered online or by phone! It’s provided by DoorDash through a partnership with our online ordering provider, Toast. Delivery area is 5 miles, and 100% of your tip goes to the driver.
