about us

Welcome to Barrett’s! We are an in home bakery located in Raleigh, NC. Just two southern girls who work in corporate America where the most exciting day is when people bring in food.  Our food of choice is always cookies and biscuits. With compliments from co-workers, friends & family we decided to share our love for these Southern staples.  We strive to make deliciously soft cookies and buttery biscuits that taste fresh out of Grandma’s kitchen. 

Simply southern.  Baked with love.






Born & raised in Rocky Mount, Va, Ellen is a small town girl that loves the big city.  She grew up working with her Grandma in her southern style restaurant where she first learned to bake biscuits at 5.  She attended Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) & graduated with a degree in Merchandising Management.  While her career began in retail management, she has spent the last 9 years in the corporate side of retail.  She moved to Raleigh 2 years ago as part of a corporate relocation.  While she spends a lot of her free time spinning around as an adult figure skater, her first love always brings her back to the kitchen to bake cookies & biscuits.  



Born & raised in North Carolina, Laurel is a southern girl that loves to eat delicious food. Growing up she loved eating out to try yummy new foods. She's more of a salty than sweet lover but being Ellen's co-worker has converted her into a cookie lover. She attended North Carolina State University & graduated with a degree in Textile & Apparel Management. Since college, she has spent her career in the corporate world in a wide range of industries. Starting out she worked for a children's sock company and for the past three years she's been in the auto parts industry where she met Ellen. The next industry Laurel plans to immerse herself in is the bakery world.

The Big Fake Wedding

We attended The Big Fake Wedding 2017 Raleigh showcase in October. Being selected as one of only four dessert vendors was such an honor and we loved every minute of being a part of this unique bridal showcase/fake wedding. One of the best parts was the pride TBFW took in really spotlighting local small businesses. We were so proud to have been selected to be a part of this lovely evening.  Scroll below to check out some photos from the event.

I just wanted to praise you on your chocolate chip cookies, again. Every time I eat one, that cookie then becomes the best cookie I have ever eaten in my life. Not sure how you have nailed creating that kind of consistency, but just as the sun will rise every morning, your chocolate chips cookies will continue to impress me.

I do appreciate your baking skills.
