the owners

Hi, we are Jan and David Patterson and it is our honor to be the owners of Patticakes.  Since moving to the Haile Village Center, where David is the Pastor of River Cross Church, we have had a desire for a place that neighbors could gather and linger over top notch, hand-crafted treats and expertly prepared coffee and espresso.   So in 2011 we opened Patticakes.  We have a longing for people to know they are valued and belong, so we carefully hire staff that share that desire and will lovingly serve all of our customers. 


How did we get the name Patticakes? From our last name Patterson + the love of delicious, high-quality cupcakes.


In 2016 we had the privilege of opening our second location on the Bo Diddley Plaza in downtown Gainesville.  Jan worked downtown for many years and has a great love for this community.  It has been such a delight getting to know a whole new tribe of people that live, work and hang out in downtown Gainesville.


By the way, that picture was taken the day our granddaughter was born.  It was a great day!
