You've Found Her

Welcome to Harken Cafe & Bakery. 

 

Nestled on quiet Queen Street, our petite hideaway serves up respite from the day’s hustle and bustle with sweet treats, succulent salads, heavenly sips and a unique take on the traditional biscuit. 

 

Food is our love language. Inspired by local fare and made from scrupulously sourced ingredients, Harken’s menu is the delicious result of us wreaking happy havoc in the kitchen to bring you nourishing novelties and scrumptious surprises. 

 

Enjoy the carbed comfort of our signature biscuit, delight yourself with the triple-chocolate decadence of our Best Friend cookie, and take it all in over a creamy cappuccino. Harken is here to help you refuel and reset in a setting that is sure to inspire.

Your Petite Hideaway

She’s a gem. 

 

With her earthy hues, warm woods, exposed brick and subtle Perisian influence, we designed Harken to be your sweet escape - even if just for a few rejuvenating sips and delectable bites.  

 

Perch at our favorite table overlooking the charming and historic French Quarter. Unplug for a moment. Recharge for your day. Take a moment for yourself to watch the world go by and revel in the all-too-rare bliss of losing track of time. 

 

Discover our warm, nostalgic little nooks designed to feel like you’ve both stepped away and come home at the same time.

Made With Love

Inspired by Greer’s creative genius, ganache affliction and heirloom cookbooks, Harken’s menu is whipped, kneaded and baked from scratch using only the finest lowcountry ingredients.  

 

Here you’ll find satiating breakfast and fresh lunch fare spanning scrumptious salads, refreshing sips, seasonal treats and our signature spin on the southern biscuit.

Our Story

Ours is a love story starring two besties, big dreams and an absurd amount of cookie dough.

Every single recipe is hand crafted and solely made here. Wreaking happy havoc in the kitchen, we don’t play when it comes to scouring and sourcing for the highest quality and freshest ingredients from the creme de la creme across the southeast. 

 

Inside our four walls, we believe in playing with our food, that cookies are confidants, and that hospitality begins with a warm “hello” from our friendly team.

 

Outside of our four walls, we believe in caring for our community, nurturing our neighbors and leaving the world a little better than we found it.
