About Our Bakery

My name is Pam Minhas, the owner of BAKED Coffee Bar in Dewey Beach, DE. Prior to opening the business in October 2014 I worked 21 years as an IT Manager for Maple Press in York, PA. I also served in the U.S. Army for 7 years in Personnel Management and I am a college graduate with a degree in Business Management. I have previous experience as an Entrepreneur owning Bike To Go in Rehoboth Beach for 3 years and Blue Bistro & Wine Bar in Harrisburg, PA for 2 years. Unfortunately after opening Blue Bistro & Wine Bar I was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer. As a distraction from the treatments, I signed up for a college level class to become a Chocolatier. It was important to have a positive outlet and give back to all the care givers that were helping me.

After my recovery from cancer it became even more important to me to pursue my life’s passion. At a young age I developed a passion for cooking. My travels while serving in the military opened my eyes to a whole new world of flavors. My time in Korea helped me develop all my senses to food… sweet, salty, sour, bitter, spicy and Umami most often referred to as savory, but is really achieved by fermentation like the flavors that develop in cheese. My travels also landed me in the land of abundance… California the salad bowl of the world. The Farm to Table concept was already popular in the 80’s in California. I also learned many new cultures of cooking while living in California. The obvious may be Mexican, however, I was also introduced and fell in love with Indian cooking. I was introduced to fresh baked breads. The smell of fresh baked anything is intoxicating. My education in culinary arts stems from my passion around food that was further developed by my travels and fascination with learning to make these wonderful flavors myself. My real passion comes from sharing my food and watching others appreciate it.
