Sugary, Buttery Queenets!

What is this unique treat?

If you’ve never had a Queenet, it is truly an experience! A miniature version of the Kouign Amann cake that originates from Brittany, France, this unique pastry is flaky & crunchy outside, soft & sweet inside, and sugary & buttery all over! Try our delicious, buttery Classic Queenet or add one of our many Queenet filling flavors including a Taste of the Month flavor!

Born during a crisis... instant favorite!

Launched during the 2020 pandemic crisis, this tasty treat was originally named a "Kouignette" (as it is a miniature version of a Kouign Aman Cake that originates from Brittany, France), but since no one knew what the correct pronunciation was supposed to be, we quickly changed the spelling to make it easier for everyone! No matter what you called it, our Queenets were a instant hit!


What filling flavors are available?
– Choose from Salted Butter Caramel, Nutella, Lemon Curd, Cinnamon Cream, or our limited-time Taste of the Month flavor. Filled upon request!

Should I pre-order?
– Definitely. It’s our #1 pastry so we quite often run out! We highly recommend pre-ordering to guarantee availability.

How can I maximize my Queenet experience?
– We highly recommend enjoying your Queenet within 6-8 hours, as they are baked fresh daily. Keep at room temperature or try them slightly warmed in an oven at 350F for approximately 5 minutes (time may vary depending on fillings).

What occasions are Queenets best for?
– A snack on the road, 5 minutes after you got it
– Gift for your favorite people
– Parties, work events, or get-togethers
– Special snack or treat because you deserve it
– Teacher, Coach, or Boss Appreciation
– A comfort treat for a quick pick-me-up
– Snack or dessert, anywhere, anytime.
