Baked fresh

Every day.

Situated on Hardin Street across from the campus of Appalachians State, come visit us at the original Stick Boy location where we have been sharing our love of food with High Country since 2001. Using traditional ingredient and methods, we produce a wide range of baked goods and also have a full espresso and smoothie bar. We only have about a dozen parking spots and even fewer seats, but in this bustling production bakery you’ll find naturally fermented sourdough loaves, chocolate torte, cream cheese cinnamon rolls and a delicious frothy cappuccino.
After years of customers asking for sandwiches and grumbling about parking and seating, we finally have it all! Opened in 2013, Stick Boy Kitchen (known simply as “the Kitchen” to locals) is our café location conveniently located just off of 321 on Boone Heights Drive. We offer breakfast plates, bagels, soups, sandwiches and salads all made with the same singular focus on quality ingredients, freshness and creativity that Stick Boy is known for. Don’t worry, if you are looking for baked goods, coffee and smoothies we have it all! Stop by get some real food.

Our Story

An idea to start a bakery. A fun and silly logo with a stick boy on it. A constant search for better products made with better ingredients. A fresh cup of coffee made with organic fair trade beans from a local roaster. A loaf of naturally fermented Carolina Sourdough made with only NC grown organic flour, water and salt. A warm magic cookie or sticky bun. A new café location across town called Stick Boy Kitchen. We have 15 years of history give or take. We could tell a long story about ourselves. We could tell lots of stories.

The story that I am most interested in telling though is the story of us. When people come to work at Stick Boy we ask a lot of them. We ask them to work really hard all hours of the day and night, to be creative, to solve problems, and to be honest and challenge each other. We know that work isn’t their first priority though and we don’t want it to be. In the balance of working hard and studying, or leading campus groups, or climbing, or cycling, or raising families or just hanging out with friends, Stick Boy employees manage to squeeze every minute out of a day and somehow do it all again the next day. We have a remarkable team at Stick Boy and we hold each other up and push each other forward every day. Everything you experience when you walk through the doors of Stick Boy is a product of that.

When we do it well, I think you’ll catch a glimpse of the Stick Boy story. When we don’t do it well I hope you give us a chance to say we’re sorry and let us try again. We love what we do. We are passionate about the food that we make. We choose to work in the service industry because we find value in serving people and I hope you find value in that too. We spend time connecting with each other and with our customers because relationships matter to us. We are crazy about this community we have in the mountains because there is no other place quite like it. And we are really proud and really honored to be a part of it.
