Sticky Bun Legend WildFlour to Leave Downtown Charleston in July

The West Ashley store will remain open

After 10 years of feeding lines of sweet-seekers, WildFlour Pastry will close its downtown shop this summer. The 73 Spring Street bakery has been a Sunday staple of sticky bun lovers since 2009.

While the second WildFlour in West Ashley will remain open, the team explained the decision on social media:

What a great 10 years it’s been! Our little 700 square foot shop, WildFlour, was built in 2009 with lots and lots of love; love of pastry, love of family, and love of our community. We have grown so much as a company, and a family; the years gave us some terrible losses and some amazingly beautiful additions. If there is one thing I have learned in this endeavor it’s that there is a life cycle to everything, especially in business. With that said, it’s time to say goodbye to our little downtown gem and let it grow another butterfly; the downtown location will close mid-July. The Elliotborough/Cannonborough neighborhood brought us into their lives and for that I am eternally indebted. It’s time for us to focus on #keiraisawildflour and the continued growth of the company. WildFlour West Ashley is open and will keep producing hand crafted pastry for the Charleston community with new and exciting programs to come!

With love,

WildFlour Pastry

In 2016, James Beard Award-nominated pastry chef Lauren Mitterer opened a second WildFlour at 1750 Savannah Highway — good news for sticky bun fans.
