Pastry Shop and Tasting Room






At MATTA, we believe that desserts in particular, play a special part in some of these moments. 

We love creating and sharing our passion for pastry with others.  And, part of this involves developing a trusted relationship with you, our customer.  We believe that you deserve both a high quality product and a unique experience — one in which you feel a sense of genuine hospitality and your expectations are exceeded. This is why we created MATTA

MATTA is a modern American pastry shop and dessert tasting room.  It is a place to come for delicious pastries, coffee, and desserts. It is your place to start your day, to recharge, meet friends, connect with others, or simply linger.  At MATTA we will also continue to offer — in the DaisyCakes tradition — special order cakes, cupcakes, wedding cakes, and dessert tables. 

On Friday through Sunday evenings, MATTA is transformed into a dessert-forward dinner party space.  On these special evenings, you will experience a delicious six-course tasting menu involving both savory and sweet dishes, all of which are paired with wine. Seating is communal to encourage connection with one another. These tasting events are an opportunity for you to enjoy great food and wine, connect with others and to learn about the food pairings, techniques and inspiration behind our creations.
