Our bakery is named after an ancient pilgrimage route, the Camino de Santiago, which founder Cary Clifford walked in 1997. To learn more about the pilgrimage, check out this website. The Camino de Santiago remains our bakery’s inspiration as a different way of life: a life that includes time spent with friends, enjoying beautiful food and drink. We hope you like eating our treats as much as we like making them!
In 2008 Cary Clifford, an untrained but passionate baker, started a tiny bakery in the basement underneath Krankies Coffee. The business quickly grew, and in 2011 we opened our first retail shop in downtown WS. We soon added 2 other locations. Earlier this year, Cary had the great joy of bringing in 2 of Camino's long-term managers, Lisa Warner and Jordan Poe-Crawford, as co-owners.
