Kaylena Marie’s Bakery opened in Orchard Park in October, but the young baker behind the counter actually turned pro two years ago, as a high school junior.
Kaylena Eisenhauer started a wholesale bakery business from her home as a high school junior, serving clients like Delta Sonic and area restaurants, she said. After graduating from Orchard Park High School and taking a year of classes at Niagara Falls Culinary Institute, she opened her own place in October.
At 4236 North Buffalo Road, formerly Vincenzo’s Italian Ice, Eisenhauer offers Italian bread, cinnamon rolls ($4.50), cakes, cookies, danishes and other ready-to-go baked items. Lunches include sandwiches on housemade bread ($10), soups and calzones.
The bakery is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday, until 7:30 p.m. Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Closed Sunday. Call 508-8491.
