DEBORAH WEBER AND LISA BOELTER

Anna's Bakery
is family style
W H E N T H E P A I R M E T I N 1 9 8 6 , working part-time jobs at a local bakery on Fairview Avenue,
Deborah Weber and Lisa Boelter had no idea at the time the
opportunity to purchase the bakery would set the course
for their future.

The duo say they enjoy hiring locals they've watched grow
up, as well as students from nearby UC Santa Barbara. "We
are lucky to be next to the university," Weber said. "We have
had nice young people work as employees who have come
from all over California."

In 1990, Lisa and Deborah became co-owners of the bakery,
before Weber had even graduated college. Today, the bakery
has become a Goleta institution, synonymous with Goleta's
community culture.

The co-owners raised their own families in Goleta and have
even attended baby showers and wedding receptions for
former employees. "I consider it an honor that we stay in
touch," Boelter said. "That's what I like about having a business in this community."

When you walk into Anna's Bakery, you're engulfed in the
bright warmth of the place. And the aroma of fresh gourmet
cookies, brownies, custom cakes and cupcakes is the bonus
that will keep you coming back again and again.
Serving Goleta since the late 1960's, Anna's Bakery, located
in Camino Real Marketplace, is one of the oldest in the
community.

and desserts the bakery
makes each day.

Weber and Boelter say they enjoy seeing longtime customers and familiar faces each day. They consider them part
of the family. "We are well-loved, and it's a nice, connected
feeling," Weber said.

Anna's Bakery offers a variety of traditional pastries. The
freshly made glazed doughnuts are Weber's favorite item on
the menu. "When you see them at 5 in the morning, they
are perfectly warm. There's nothing that beats it," she said.
Boelter agreed with Weber's mouth-watering choice and
added the cream cheese danish to the list of favorites. The
Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread has been on the menu since the
bakery's inception and is a customer favorite, Boelter noted.
"Goleta is beautiful and a great place to do business," Boelter
said. "Almost everything you need is here."
