Orders take 48 hours to be fulfilled. Large orders and event catering require at least a 2 week notice. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before placing your order to confirm availability.
Is everything really vegan?
Yes, everything at the Curious Cat Bakery is 100% vegan and free of dairy, eggs and animal products — though you’d never know from their taste!

I love your cakes. Where can I still get one?
Cakes used to be on the menu but are no longer part of the menu. This video goes into more detail on the reasoning behind it.
I DON’T SEE A PICK UP OPTION ON THE WEBSITE. WHERE CAN I PICK UP AN ORDER?
Currently there are 2 options for getting the pastries locally:
1) You can choose the Delivery option at checkout. There is a $15 delivery fee and your order will be delivered to your door at your chosen date and time. You can specify those when checking out.
Orders must be placed at least 48 hours before the delivery day.
2) You can pick them up at one of the local retailers that sell Curious Cat Bakery. The downside with this option is that stock is never guaranteed. Sometimes they sell out minutes after I drop off so it's a bit of a gamble. I always suggest calling ahead of time to make sure they have items in stock before visiting to avoid wasting a trip. The best way to keep track of when I do deliveries to retailers is to follow my stories on Instagram. I always post whenever a drop off is made.
WHY DO I NEED TO PAY A DELIVERY FEE?
Excellent question! While I would love to offer it free of charge, in order for me to keep making pastries and run the business side of things, I need someone else to make the deliveries and the fee covers that cost.
WHAT’S THE SHELF LIFE FOR YOUR PASTRIES? CAN I FREEZE THEM?
All the items on the Curious Cat Bakery menu freeze very well and taste just as fresh when reheated properly in the following ways:
Croissants: can be frozen up to 5 months in a ziplock bag or airtight container. When ready to eat, reheat in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes.
Brownies: can be frozen up to 6 weeks in a ziplock bag or airtight container. When ready to eat, let it thaw for 20 minutes.
I’M GETTING AN ERROR WHEN TRYING TO PLACE AN ORDER FOR SHIPPING. WHAT’S GOING ON?
At the moment we are not shipping any items. They are only available locally.
If you’re trying to purchase items for local delivery and you’re getting an error message, it’s likely you are outside of the delivery zone (which encompasses all of Pinellas county and most of Hillsborough county) and as a result, the website understands that this is a shipping order and won’t allow you to check out.
The solution should be to remove the non-shippable items from the cart.
If this doesn’t solve the issue, please let me know and I can investigate further what is happening.
