WABASHA, Minn. (KTTC) -- In the small town of Wabasha, just across the street from the Mississippi sits a brand new bakery, Pembroke Bakery.
Owner and Baker Victoria Moore says, "You can see the fruits of your labor right away, for better or worse sometimes but it also allows a creative piece of me to be expressed."
After working for 30 years in Rochester, Moore retired, took a risk and dove into a fulfilling a dream.
Moore explains, "I found that I was able to keep busy but I wasn't able to really engage in something that was larger, something that I could be the visionary for."
Inside the historic building, customers come and go five days a week.
Besides offering decadent treats like scones, Pembroke Bakery is a feast for the eyes. Local artist Sue Mundy was called in to put her personal touch on the place.
Mundy says, "My heart just pulled me into doing what I wanted to do which was paint and be part of a community and be a town artist."
Following her dream and finding success Moore is enjoying the adventures of her retirement.
Moore says, "The best part of my day is when the tables are full and people are obviously enjoying themselves and enjoying what's coming out of the kitchen."
The newest team member of Pembroke Bakery is baker Aaron Hetrick, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in New York.
