ABOUT US

Charlie’s Bakery & Creamery

In the Fall of 2021 Charlie’s Gourmet Pastries celebrated 50 years of serving the Central Florida community. Reflecting on the past and its strength in history Charlie’s is looking forward to beginning a new chapter in 2022 with its new owner Tricia Hage, an Orlando native and long time Conway resident.

Charlie Hawks started Charlie’s Gourmet Pastries in October of 1971; he followed in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps in becoming a baker. He and his wife Mae raised six boys in Miami before moving to Orlando and opening the bakery. During those years one of his greatest thrills was working alongside his sons, Stanley and Gary, to make the 10th Anniversary Lunar Landing, a very large replica cake for NASA. He was also thrilled to bake a 70th birthday cake for celebrity, Lawrence Welk. In 1981 their youngest son Gary took over the reins of the bakery and Charlie and Mae were able to retire. Gary ran the bakery for another 40 years winning numerous awards.

ABOUT US
In 2021 Gary decided to retire and Orlando native Tricia Hage purchased the bakery. Tricia has added homemade ice cream and some of her own family recipes that have been handed down through the generations. In 2022 the bakery was rebranded as Charlie’s Bakery & Creamery. Charlies has been known for their excellent product and continued quality. We continue to use only the finest ingredients to create delicious cookies, cakes, pies, pastries, and ice cream. The recipes that made Charlie’s famous are listed on the menu under Charlie’s Originals.

We look forward to carrying on a rich history that is deeply rooted in this community and will continue to sweeten the lives of those we serve for generations to come!
